You could spend hours scanning through the App Store, looking for the best Apple Watch Apps— or you could let us do the work for you. After taking numerous apps out for a spin on our Apple Watch we compiled a list of apps for our readers. There are already more than 3,000 apps for the Apple Watch, which makes it difficult to find all of the good ones. Here are a few Apple Watch Apps that I found useful and installed on my Apple Watch 2.
A powerful yet simple audio podcast player, with features such as Smart Speed, Voice Boost, and Smarter Playlists to help you listen to more podcasts in more places, try new shows, and completely control your experience. Overcast is a modern, fully featured audio podcast player with many useful features in a simple, intuitive interface. One of the best Apple Watch Apps available on the AppStore.

CARROT Weather is a crazy-powerful weather app that delivers hilariously twisted forecasts. While the Apple Watch has an integrated Weather App, Carrot Weather will enhance the way you check the forecast. Dark Sky’s super accurate weather data gives you quick access to your current, hourly, and daily forecasts. Or just tap anywhere for more meteorological goodness. (Available worldwide.)

Calcbot is an intelligent calculator and unit converter for the rest of us. Featuring an easy-to-read history tape, expression view, intuitive conversion, and much more. Apple didn’t include a calculator on the Apple Watch so Calcbot is a great choice to fill the gap.
