Apple Watch App Store

To access the Apple Watch App Store you have to open the Apple Watch App on your iPhone. At the bottom, you will find the tabs “Featured” where you can browse through the best apps which Apple recommends. This app store is similar to the normal Apple iPhone App Store. Via the tab “Search” you can also search for specific apps and terms. When first launching the app store featured about 3.000 Apple Watch Apps.

When browsing the regular Apple iPhone App Store you can also find apps that are compatible with your Apple Watch. It is not as easy as the above-mentioned store since all the watch apps are mixed with the normal iPhone apps. If a certain app offers an Apple Watch version it will be shown by showing a little circled app icon beneath the regular app icon saying “Offers Apple Watch App”. When choosing an app you can see both screenshots for the iPhone app as well as for the Apple Watch app.
