23 Apple Watch Apps You Should Add Now

Your Apple Watch is here, and your wrist will never again see the light of day. But before you start flaunting your shiny new watch in front of all of the commoners who weren’t able to preorder one or get it on launch day, you’ll want to load it up with some apps. There are a lot (Apple promised as many as 3,000 apps at launch) to choose from, but these are the ones you might want to check out first.

You can also get updates on player stats and see which team is up at halftime. image MLB at Bat (free): It’s baseball season, which means trying to surreptitiously check scores on your phone during meetings without being caught by your boss.
