It’s not always easy to find good third-party Apple Watch apps because the wearable isn’t made for prolonged interactions but just glances. With that in mind, BGR selected a few 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 fewer Apple Watch apps that got fitness tracking right. More than just closing the Apple Watch rings, the developers behind this app believe users should understand how working out impact people’s bodies.

With Heart Rate Zones, Gentler Streak shows whether you’re overreaching or need to step up the 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 is one of the most recognizable apps available in the Apple ecosystem. With a killer AI full of great puns, this app tells meatbags how the weather is. Many complications are available so users can create a weather station right on their wrist.

This Apple Watch app can also tell when it will start or stop raining and warn you about the weather changing abruptly. The app is free to download but features three different tiers, so users can decide what data they need the most when checking the weather. You can download the app here.
