    i know there are apps to show if you are on 3g or 4g or lte, but does anyone know if their is an app to show the phone signal strength?
    the reason i ask is that i live in an area with poor mobile phone coverage and calling via my watch just seems to hangs if there is no signal so it would be useful to know how many bars i have. (without having to look at my phone) ;-)

    I ditto this. I would love a complication that could show me my phone's data connection status, because that directly affects the AW's performance for other stuff too. And, it would be nice if it could show battery too, as long as we are throwing in phone status dreams and wishes.

    try 'battery look' for battery level, 3g/4g and wifi you're connected to.
    or 'phone watcher' for battery level, wifi & storage space. :)

    This would be VERY useful as a complication.....not so much as an app.

    good idea gottafly, and thats the issue dhlizard, there are lots of of apps to see data transfer, even my bluetooth in the car shows in actual bars (5) the carrier signal strength.

    With these Apps, how do you see download/upload speeds on the watch app ?

    I understand how the charging and capacity indicators work but not the above

    i haven't personally tried any that give transfer rates, i just use 'phone look' as it at least it tells me my cellular connectivity even if it doesn't gives my carrier signal strength. :)
