    Is it possible to put an app solely on the Apple Watch and not on my phone?

    For example, I use Weatherbug on my phone to look at radar and there's no Apple Watch version of that app yet. I want to be able to quickly check the weather radar on my watch and there's an app I found but I only want it on my watch so I don't have 2 weather apps on my phone.

    There are some watch only apps -- so maybe you can look in the app store for watch only apps that have to do with weather?

    All apple watch apps currently are just extensions of iPhone apps. That means your not going to find watch only apps. From what I have read, later this year a new SDK will be released which will allow developers to code native watch apps without the required iPhone counterpart.
