The Top Free Applications for Apple Watch

To completely personalize your Apple Watch, you'll want to start installing your favorite third-party apps. For those who have spent all of their wearable budgets on the Watch, there is still a tonne of useful apps available for free. Our top 10 free Apple Watch apps are here for your perusal.

1. Chirp

Since Twitter pulled its app from the Apple Watch, there has been a hole in our lives. Chirp reestablishes the link. Quickly like or retweet whatever you see with a short tap on a simple interface that lets you look through your timeline and scan your mentions. Even if you don't use Twitter as much as you'd like to (or even if you do), you should have the free Chirp app installed on your Watch so that you can monitor your feed and see what's trending.

2. Cheatsheet

It would be best if you remember many things, and the Apple Watch is a great way to keep track of them, but Apple doesn't include an app that allows you to see all of them at once. As a result, an app like Cheatsheet is a must-have. Simply put, you can't go wrong with the free app. Three "cheats" can be added, edited, and deleted immediately on your wrist, and a complication can be added to show your most urgent text on supported faces. To unlock the full version, you'll need to spend $2.99, which will give you unlimited access.) Cheatsheet lacks the encryption and security of an app like 1Password, yet it's essential for quickly accessing short notes.

3. Sleep++

For one thing, our Apple Watch can't monitor our sleep patterns on its own. You can do this on your Apple Watch using the Sleep++ app. As long as you keep your Watch on your wrist while you sleep, the app will track the various phases and patterns of your sleep to determine how long and how good of a night you had. Auto-sleep detection, though, is the real game-changer. You can use the Watch's health monitoring features to activate Sleep++ as soon as you fall asleep and turn it off as soon as you wake up. Just make sure your Apple Watch has enough battery life to last the night before using it.

4. theScore

With the Apple Watch, you can stay up to current on sports news and scores at all times. Our preferred method is to use theScore app. The app is fully free and configurable, and it will keep you up to speed on all of your favorite teams' news and scores, whether you follow professional or amateur sports. In-game action, player stats, and forthcoming games will all be displayed on your wrist as the game progresses. As a substitute for watching television, it's a good option.

5. Night Sky

On the iPhone, Night Sky is just as good as on the large screen, and stargazers will be pleased to know that. As well as getting alerts on astronomical phenomena, you'll be able to look up into the sky and see what constellations or planets are directly overhead, no matter where you are. When you lower your wrist, the app will transform into a Celestial Compass that provides a 360-degree view of the sky. As a bonus, you'll know when the International Space Station passes by.

6. Shazam

Since Apple now owns Shazam, an update with built-in support for the Apple Watch is almost certainly on the way, but in the meantime, the Shazam app for the Apple Watch is a must-have. The Shazam app on your wrist reduces the service to its most valuable asset: music identification. It's quick, simple, and very convenient. Tap to see what song is playing in the app when you open it. In case you've forgotten how it works, you may also hear a preview and browse a list of your most recent song matches.

7. PCalc Lite

There's one feature that the smart timepieces of the 1980s had that the Apple Watch does not: a calculator. Even though we'll never know why Apple didn't provide a basic calculator app for the wrist, the people behind PCalc have made it irrelevant. In addition, you don't have to purchase the pro version to use it. PCalc Lite, a free wrist calculator that includes a handy tip calculator, lets you perform basic calculations on the go. If the number pad is too small for your fingertips, you can scribble or voice your formulas.

8. Notebook

New watches don't come preloaded with Notes, a third software that Apple does not include. Siri is useless in this situation, but the Notebook comes in handy. You'll be able to create, record, and see recent notes on your Apple Watch, in addition to the excellent software for iPhone and iPad. Your iPhone's photos will be visible in the notes section as well. The sync is almost instantaneous in both directions, audio notes are completely played on your iPhone, and you can remove notes immediately from your wrist. It's a great replacement for Notes.

9. Map My Run

For those who want to take their workouts to the next level, Under Armor's Map My Run app is the best method to get the most out of their Apple Watch. Additionally, you will be able to monitor your heart rate and anaerobic levels and your distance and steps logged in the past. You can even start recording your run when your feet touch the ground if you have UA Record Equipped linked shoes.

10. Calm

Calm, like Headspace, is a guided meditation app with a wide range of session lengths designed to meet the needs of both beginners and seasoned meditators. Relaxation, de-stressing, improving self-esteem, and getting into the correct mentality for a good night's sleep are the themes covered in those sessions.

The free tier of the top Apple Watch apps, as is customary, comes with a simple set of functions. Premium memberships to Calm start at a cost of $14.99 per month and give you access to additional content, for example, there are daily meditations, sleep aids, master workshops, and more music and meditations that are only available through the Calm application.
