    I would be happy with an app that even just had the circle and no schedule or history.

    I think that's all I'd want.

    I found an app called Wrist:Home which "works with Nest" but it's extremely buggy and unpolished. Any Nest app should use the digital crown to control temperature.

    I control my Nest on my Apple Watch using the IFTTT Do Button app (iTunes link), which is compatible with the watch.

    I have two buttons ("recipies") in the watch app- one to set the temp to 15 degrees and the other to set it to 21.5, which basically reflect my flat's 'on' and 'off' temperatures.

    It is really cool tapping the button on my wrist and seeing the Nest light up and do its thing.

    Yes I am using Do for Harmony stuff. It's limited though to certain actions.

    Funny, my co worker was going nuts today saying the same thing. Kinda ridiculous.

    The app Thessa works great on the watch. It also has a Today widget for iPhone/iPad.

    I use the Kontrolln watch app to control my Nest stat, its a bit slow and clunky but it does the basics.

    I asked nest about this and got this repsonse:

    https://twitter.com/nestsupport/status/594159090772942848

    With the tone of that it seems that Apple and Nest relationship is going no where.

    Apple: "Nest use Homekit"
    Nest: "Apple, join 'works with Nest'"

    Might sell the nest and get the Honeywell now.

    What I like about my nests is that I don't need to interact with them. They just get on with it.

    So I don't think I'd use a watch app much.

    Ouch, really? This post needs to be on macrumors main page. I love my nest but disappointed if they don't add a SIMPLE apple watch app.

    Yeah that makes sense that you'd want to interact more in that scenario. But isn't that interaction better and safer left to the iPhone app? Because:
    1. The screen real estate on the watch is a bit limited.
    2. There's the chance you could inadvertently open the app while you're just taking a nap (say, in your hotel, 1000 miles from home) and inadvertently mess up the temperatures back home without realizing?

    Somewhere during all my reading before the watch came out there was spicy of the watch with the nest app on it.

    This one according to the reviews doesn't support multiple Nests and I have 3 of them. I also tried Kontrol Nest which has a great interface but is not working properly on the watch. Apparently the watch simulator isn't great as a lot of third party apps have major bugs in them.

    Huh... I can't seem to get the watch extension to make the Nest move. iPhone app works though.:confused:
