Best Apple Watch apps 2018
From getting great action shots to recording interviews or memos, these apps and games will help you get the most out of your Apple Watch.
This app is fantastic for easy access to step-by-step directions, perfect for navigating to a new restaurant or even a new city. It comes with the same features as the iPhone app, which includes a list of your favourite places and live information on public transport routes.
What’s more, if you’re prone to falling asleep on public transport, the Apple Watch will vibrate when your stop is imminent, meaning you don’t miss it.

Boy, I wish I’d known about the Apple Watch Citymapper app back then.
