The most impressive things about Apple Watch is the selection of apps available compared to its rival platforms. With over 20,000 available to download, the App Store has the potential to be the best in the business and it continues to grow. Wondering what are the best Apple Watch apps for sleep, fitness and travel? Here’s the list of 7 best apps for Apple Watch.
Best Apps For Apple Watch
1. Runkeeper (£free + IAP)
Runkeeper is perhaps the most popular Apple watch apps. It has been a long-time favorite of healthy folks and also happens to have a snazzy Apple Watch app. In an older Apple Watch, Runkeeper communicates with owner’s iPhone and provids updates on current progress.
In Apple Watch Series 2 you can turn off Run With Phone and the app will use your watch’s GPS to build a map of your journey. It is a great app for checking out routes of successful runs.
2. Sleep++ (£free)
Most Apple Watch apps feed you information when you’re awake. On the contrary, Sleep++ is almost the opposite! It grabs your information while you’re sleeping. Broadly speaking, the app tracks motion, thereby figuring out how restless you are – and when.
Sleep++ is more responsive when you wake due to watchOS 3’s Background Refresh. It enables you to immediately analyse last night’s sleep. Moreover, the developer notes that charging the watch should not be a concern while using the app overnight.

Now Apple Watch users can transport apps on their Watch. The built-in Maps app from Apple is still the most versatile due to excellent maps, directions and now public transport options in some cities including London.

You can switch between walking, driving and public transport modes through a Force Press on the Watch screen. The cycle routing that the phone app offers isn’t here.
