These are the best Apple Watch apps you should install right now
Finding good third-party Apple Watch apps isn’t always easy because the wearable isn’t made for long-term interactions, just glances. With that in mind, BGR selected some of the more interesting third-party Apple Watch apps available and what you can do with them.
Gentler Streak brings compassion to your fitness goals
Gentler Streak is one of the few Apple Watch apps that got fitness tracking right. More than just closing the Apple Watch rings, the developers behind this app believe that users should understand how exercise affects people’s bodies.
With Heart Rate Zones, the Gentler Streak shows you whether you’re overachieving or need to step up your game and push harder. With its “Go Gentler” feature, the app recommends some exercises and rest days. The app is free to start, but requires a subscription to unlock all features. You can download it here.
CARROT The weather makes forecasting fun
CARROT is one of the most recognizable apps available in the Apple ecosystem. With a killer AI full of great puns, this app tells meat bags what the weather is like. Many complications are available so users can create a weather station right on their wrist.
This Apple Watch app can also tell when it starts or stops raining and warn you that the weather is changing suddenly. The app is free to download, but has three different levels, allowing users to decide which data they need most when checking the weather. You can download the app here.
Authenticator from 2Stable brings 2FA to the Apple Watch
Whether you want to sign in to email, Apple ID, social media, etc., you’ll probably need to enter a 2FA code. Even if you usually have your iPhone nearby, there’s a chance you don’t have it at the moment. This is why Authenticator by 2Stable offers one of the best solutions available.
Not only does this app work on all your Apple devices, but this end-to-end encrypted application can easily display your most used 2FA codes right from your wrist. Authenticator is free, but requires a subscription to unlock all features. You can download it here.
