How to Add Apps to your Apple Watch


The Apple Watch comes preloaded with a library of apps, some of which include the Activity app, which monitors your progress toward your workout goals; the Breathe app, which is a mindfulness tracker; a Calendar app, on which you can monitor upcoming events, holidays, and meetings; and other apps. Although the apps that come preloaded on the Apple Watch are helpful for getting started, you can also download thousands of apps from third-party developers and install them on your Apple Watch, just as you do on your iPhone.

Here’s how to add apps to your Apple Watch using the App Store or the Watch app if you want to give it a more customized feel and make it feel more like a part of you.

Why won’t my Apple Watch add apps?

Perform a full restart of your Apple Watch:

After you have restarted both your Watch and your iPhone, you will need to make another attempt at installing the applications on both devices. If the installation from your iPhone using the Watch app doesn’t work, we suggest attempting the download from the App Store on your Watch. If that doesn’t work, try installing from your iPhone using the Watch app again.
