    I just realized I haven't seen any mention of a calculator app for the watch. Seems like it would be useful. Small... but I think simple calculations would work in the small surface. Thoughts?

    You could try using Siri, but there may be third party app for this.

    The Wdgts app/notifications tool announced that they will have a Watch update that includes the calculator. If you use that for its functions, you already have a calculator for the AW!

    I'm sorry but what is the "wdgts app/notifications tool" and where can I find it. Including a link if at all possible.

    Thanks!!!

    While they are at it, the watch would be a nice place for a currency converter too.

    Go to the App Store and search for Wdgts. It includes widgets that appear in the notifications center.

    I noticed on Apple's "Introducing Apple Watch" video, it shows a calculator app on screen.

    That seems unnecessarily cumbersome... I don't think I like that. :(

    A custom PCalc calculator would be oh so amazing, probably do it in two pages, one for the basics, two for your own stuff, and maybe some dictation.

    I tried most of them and the only one I like is "calc calculator " because it shows everything in the same screen numbers & x - + =
    Most of the other ones those symbols are on another page or you have to force touch to bring it up

    Does anyone think its particle to try and tap the little tiny calculator buttons? I find that using Siri is just easier for ME. I respect that this may work better for some of you. I'm just wondering why.

    I like things simple but functional, so I rattled this up for myself. One screen for simplicity, two for when I want bigger buttons and, well, a tip calculator is always handy.
    Don't get me wrong it's not something people would pay for (which is why it's not on sale :D) but it suits me fine.
    It works on iPhone as well, not that I use it much, there's nothing wrong with the default iPhone calculator.
