    Carrot for weather
    Sky Guide - space nerd use it for the moon phase complication

    I have an original Series 0....battery life sucks so hoping to start using some of the other apps I’ve ignored once my new Series 3 arrives (the battery has to be better than what I have now)...

    Cheers,

    Is Heartwatch worth it now that Apple has improved the heart rate portion in the health app?

    Any good groceries? Used Ourgroceries on the iPhone but it doesn’t have a Watch app. The pie one has nice colors for categories, but I’d rather have aisle names and the aisles in order.

    Trying out Listease at the moment and it is ok, but when you cross off an item in the store it seems to take quite awhile to reach the app on your phone, and even longer to reach my wife’s watch or phone. A bit problematic when we are both picking stuff up.

    I’ve been searching for a great grocery app for the watch and I think I’ve finally found a winner! Check out “Milk for Us.” The name is dumb, but it works great! You can organize your grocery list by aisles for multiple stores and it’s super fast on the watch! The only thing it’s lacking is pricing, but I’ve given up on finding an app that does it all.

    I think Purp app is really interesting for anyone who has goals in their life.

    Anyone has countdown app to recommend? I only want to have it countdown to minutes & seconds and has Complication. That's all. Doesn't matter it's free or paid, just want it to be reliable.

    The built-in Timer does this, including a complication. I use it every time I do laundry.

    I mean countdown to a day. Like it's 13 days 2 hours 3 mins and 56 seconds to Apple Keynote, for example. The same thing as on Apple front page but is a Complication on your watch face instead.
    Most countdown app has multiple countdowns which is great but only to a day, not to seconds.

    Does anyone know how often the Pedometer++ complication refreshes on the watch face?

    It's obviously not real time but does it refresh say every 15 mins or 30mins?

    These x10. Obviously it depends what you wanna do with the watch, but I don’t look at it as an app platform the same way the iPhone is. Apps work best for me as passive receptors (or transmitters) of information. I don’t want to actually interact with things on the watch. The few things I do interact with I do with built in apps (weather, messages, breathe, workout, activity)

    Yes. The health app has certainly gotten better, but I prefer HeartWatch much more. Lately I’ve been checking out the updated health app, because it’s currently the only way to view VO2Max and Heart Rate Variability. Good but not great.

    You can use the App Countdowns for it. You can set multiple countdowns and decide for each one which one you will show on the watch. It is very flexible in the setup, if you want days, minutes, hours, seconds etc. ...

    It's probably in the 10-20 minute range. That's about the max you can run complication updates without starting the parent Watch app.

    I've used Anylist for the past few years and it's excellent, the watch app is just a complication that lets you check stuff off on lists.

    Milk for Us looks very similar, although one of the things I really like is it's recipe section, which lets you import recipes from the web and maintain a recipe database, which you can then use to help you create a shopping list.

    I use AnyList too and highly recommend it, and not just for grocery lists.
