On April 24, Apple started shipping its Apple Watch – the new Apple wearable gadget that straps the power of a smartphone to your wrist. Initial orders are estimated at anywhere between 1.7 million (Slice Intelligence) and 2.3 million (KGI Securities via MacRumors).
The new wearable technology designed by Apple presents a more convenient way to deal with smart apps. Many varieties of apps for Apple Watch are already available on the App Store, including health and fitness, communication, utilities, home automation, and many more.
Let’s take a look at some cool Apple Watch apps.
Places Around: An app designed to find local places and services like gas stations, ATMs, restaurants, movie theaters, shopping malls, parking areas, and more. You can choose a particular service or search with your voice. Places Around can provide the distance and route to the location, business hours, deals, menus, reviews, and contact details in real time. You can reserve hotels and restaurants instantly from the app itself. Apple Maps helps you find directions and view the location. Place details can be shared through Facebook and Twitter. $1.99 on iTunes.
Home Remote: A robust home automation app that can control your home. Home Remote helps unlock doors and turn on and off lights. You can control these operations with your voice right from your wrist. The app supports iBeacons to trigger actions based on your location. It enables you to create buttons on your Today screen or on Apple Watch to put commands into action. Timers for home automation activities let Home Remote manage every device schedule. $1.99 on iTunes.
Baby Monitor 3G: An intelligent way to keep tabs on your (hopefully) sleeping baby. Baby Monitor 3G uses the microphone and camera on one iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or Mac in the nursery to broadcast to a paired device. The app works over Wi-Fi, 3G, and LTE, so it’s not restricted to the short range of traditional baby monitors. Baby Monitor 3G will alert you to each of your baby’s movement and bring you an update of the most recent noise. $3.99 on iTunes.
Feed Wrangler: A simple and fast solution to manage your RSS feeds. The app lets you browse news headlines and read articles. Feed Wrangler integrates with Pocket, Pinboard, and Instapaper for reading later. The Apple Watch Glance view is accessible from the clock face itself for quick headline browsing. Its powerful search functionality allows you to read even full articles. Free on iTunes; requires $19 annual subscription.
Runtastic Pro: An app to track your sports and fitness activities. The GPS enabled app lets you trace your progress, speed, distance, duration, and more. You can access the workout details on your wrist instantly. Graphs and Metrics help you analyze your workouts and improve performance. The app includes powerful features that help you to achieve great results from your regular workout. You can also share exercise through Facebook and Twitter. $4.99 on iTunes.
Rules!: An award-winning puzzle game perfect for the Apple Watch display. Rules! allows players to test their memory. It’s all about remembering some basic rules and tapping the relevant cards. Games come in three modes: Beginner, Expert or Timeless. The game includes a hundred levels filled with fun and challenge. It lets you enjoy each move with some funny characters like Whales, Unicorns, Robots and Squirrels. On Apple Watch, there’s a daily brain workout mini-game. $2.99 on iTunes.
