5 Great Apps For Your New Apple Watch
Kick off the new year right with these ideas for your new smartwatch.
Still tinkering about with that new holiday Apple Watch? What are you going to put on it? What apps do you absolutely need on your wrist at your beck and call at all times? We can't tell you what to use, but we can definitely make some suggestions. Here are a few ideas of what you can load up your Apple Watch with in order to get the most out of it. And no, the world doesn't revolve around selfies, so don't expect to see Instagram on this list.
This may seem like a no-brainer, but if you use the social media tool you're probably addicted to it, too. Use the official app on your Apple Watch to get quick updates and replies to your tweets, without having to reach into your pocket or bag to see what's being said. The app works effortlessly with the watch, and you probably already have it on your phone, so why not go ahead and get started being productive?
If you're trying to start the new year with a set of resolutions, then you're going to want to bring along something to track all your dietary decisions. You can add this to your app arsenal to sync with your iPhone's Health app and the measurements it already tracks on its own. You can add in the foods you eat, your weight, and the rest of your measurements and watch the pounds melt off from there. Sounds like a good idea, right? Right!
Everyone's used Yelp at one point in their lives or another. Now you can have it at your fingertips on your Apple Watch. The Yelp app is surprisingly robust, letting you check out which restaurants make the grade for you on the go without having to stand and look through your phone for a suitable choice. It's a must-have, especially for foodies.
Spotify is a must-have for music fans on the go, and the Apple Watch iteration is especially useful. If you're connected in the car or on a run, all you've got to do is sync up to your phone to control playlists, skip songs, and more. Holding your phone in either of the aforementioned situations is absolutely awkward and annoying, so having a central location where you can control things from your wrist becomes really handy this way. Plus, you can sync the app with other phones too.
If you're planning on losing weight and getting fit in the new year, this is an essential app. You can load it onto your Apple Watch and map the area you decide to run through your neighborhood with. It's fulfilling to look back and see what kind of distance you've covered as well as other details about your little trek, and it's a whole lot better than trying to walk around with your face glued to your phone or the device in an armband on your arm, falling down all the time. Just don't sweat too much on the armband!
