Despite the large number of available apps in the App Store / Google Play there are quite few applications are designed for smartwatch users. That means that companies who start to develop a great app for smartwatches can have a competitive edge. Although it is important to mention that smartwatch applications are not appropriate for every use.
Smartwatch apps are extremely popular at health and sport topics. Just think Nike Run, Runtastic or Endomondo, where you can measure your progress, pulse and blood pressure while wearing just one watch. Besides fitness applications smartwatch platforms are perfect for getting directions, using voice search or playing music, for example Shazam is also available for smartwatches.
Watch OS, Wear OS and Tizen apps
The hardware used in smartwatches is diverse. Apple is a major player with watchOS, but Samsung, LG and Motorola have a larger market share too. Those who seek to buy a smartwatch should know that Apple’s watchOS is only compatible with iOS. There are two key other operating systems: Tizen – mostly used by Samsung and Wear OS used by Huawei, Asus, LG, Motorola or even TAG Heuer.
Although today more and more traditional watch companies create smartwatches those have pre-installed applications, and most of the time users cannot customize them.
When it comes to developing a smartwatch app, basically there are two methods. First there are smartwatch app extensions (like in the case of Runtastic) which means that an application is compatible with smartphones and smartwatches too, or there is another case, where developers create a separate application specifically for smartwatches (like Evernote). It is logical that having one compatible application attracts more users, so it has more reviews and downloads.
