The Apple Watch is the most sought-after smartwatch of its time. There has been a lot of improvement since it’s initial unveiling in September 2014 and what started as a timepiece fashion accessory has moved onto a connected device in its own right.
The Apple Watch now supports its own data connection and also has its own App Store, which provides a wide range of great and useful apps suited for the Apple Watch specifically.
From productivity to meditation applications, I take a look at the five best Apple Watch apps that will improve your experience with your Apple Watch.
Five Best Apple Watch Apps
1.) Peloton (Free with in-app purchases)
This app is named after a bike race term and initially invented to follow a known high-priced exercise bike however Peloton is not all about the art of cycling. It can also guide users in running, high-intensity training, yoga, and even meditation provided by its instructed learning sessions. Some of its features include progress tracking, music playback, and streamed video classes. With the Apple Watch, it can display heart rate tracking, distance and pace metrics, and other statistics that you need during the workout routine.
2.) Headspace (Free with in-app purchases)
This app is great for people who are easily stressed or busy throughout the day. Headspace can help you feel calmer and induce mindfulness by taking a break from all the hustle. This Apple Watch app will serve as a coach and reminder that will urge you to do particular stuff and focus your attention and time with it. One of its amazing qualities is the SOS mode which is designed to instantly help you to elevate stress and problems.
3.) NapBot (Free with in-app purchases)
NapBot is a sleep tracker that automatically records and tracks your sleep and also monitors the surrounding noises during your sleep. It will help you identify different factors that may affect your sleep. To unlock the two main features, Sleep History and Sleep Trends, you will need to subscribe to NapBot.

The Amazon-owned audio-books, Audible, is now available in Apple Watch. With its wide variety of audio-books, famous narrators, and the amazing quality are now accessible in your Apple Watch, and with its advantage, to the size and app functionality, you will surely enjoy using Audible. You can transfer audio-books to your Watch or just synchronise from your iPhone for your convenience.
5.) Things 3 (£9.99/AU$14.99/£$.99)
Things have been one of the to-do applications on iOS and it is now available on Apple Watch as a standalone app. You can use it directly or synchronise your application with Things Cloud to save and run your notes across any platform instantly. It is minimal and serves its purpose well enough to give all the information that you need at any time of the day.
