The pace of modern life forces us to talk business and make decisions on-the-go. It is hard to imagine how would we cope with all the incoming tasks and duties without smartphones. But smartphones are not the only thing that is able to keep us productive wherever we are. Smartwatches are gradually becoming an integral part of our lives too.
In this post, I would like to list the top app for smartwatches that help stay connected all the time and be more productive.
Apps for business
Telegram has become more than messenger long ago. It is used for business communication, promotion, personal chatting, etc. You can even buy a flight ticket within the app by using an appropriate chatbot. The messenger has no ads and it is highly secure due to the end-to-end encryption in couple with other security methods.
For your convenience, developers have added an opportunity to text messages as well as record voice and video messages.
Telegram is available across all popular platforms including Wear OS and watchOS.
I suppose many of you are acquainted with this tailor-made note taking application. Evernote can be installed on your Windows or Mac computer, tablet, smartphone, and smartwatch. Every note you take will be synchronized with each device this app is installed on (premium feature).
3. Google Pay or Apple Pay
Despite the fact it is not really an app but rather the built-in system capability, I could not skip it. Those two are designed to help you pay for purchases with a move of your wrist. Just hold them near a PoS-terminal for a few seconds — done! It is that simple.
The system requires certain authentication but when all set, you can speed up a chain of routine payment processes. Be it a morning coffee or an evening grocery shopping.
Slack is a perfect solution for teamwork and it is actually used by a plethora of companies from small to enterprise level. They use it as an internal messenger giving an opportunity to discuss work matters in a few taps and share different sort of files easily.
Slack is integrated with many services that are often used for work. Among them are Dropbox, Gmail, Google Drive, and others. The app can help you stay in touch with your colleagues and customers when you really mean it. (Notification settings are very flexible so you can turn on the ‘Do not disturb’ mode wherever you need or set it for the specific time of the day.)
It is a popular project management application that is crafted to streamline your workflow. Trello users can quickly overview all the tasks they have to deal with this day/week/month. In fact, the Trello boards can be organized in hundreds of different ways that provide co-workers with a decent level of customization.
Apps for travel and relax
What can be better than a cup of something after a busy working week? Or maybe you prefer going anywhere on weekends? There are a bunch of apps that can help you handle all of these.
I bet that most of you have heard about Uber. It is a ridesharing service that helps passengers find a ride to a certain destination quickly and in a few taps.
While many entrepreneurs try to figure out the cost to make an app like Uber, the only thing we should know is that the service has an app for both Wear OS and watchOS.
This service is focused on helping travelers with planning their trips out. It covers more than 50 countries and cooperates with restaurants, hotels, and touristic centers worldwide. The use of TripAdvisor’s smartwatch app lets you see interesting places and activities nearby as well as access to other functionality right on your wrist.
So, why smartwatch apps can be useful for many people? Mostly because of the following benefits they bring:
● Available with a move of the wrist
● Keep users organized
● Deliver up-to-date data on time
In general, every service that creates an app for smartwatches does it in order to make the experience of their users even better. And it is up to you whether to use them or not.
