17 of the Best Apple Watch Apps

The best Apple Watch Apps are known to have evolved since their launch. In 2015, the Apple Watch was launched by Apple Inc., and it had 3,000 apps available to download.

Presently, there are 20,000 apps available, although 21 of them are pre-installed into the watch. After the launch in 2015, there was not much demand for the device.
