The Apple Watch is now in its third generation, and the aptly named Apple Watch 3 is pretty popular - so that's why you're probably looking at the new apps here.

In fact, it is one of the best smartwatch options out there, and now that we are in the third generation, it will be a particularly smart option for your wrist.

The first question we hear from new Apple Watch owners is: & # 39; Which apps should I download first? & # 39; To make answering that question easier, we have compiled a comprehensive list of the best Apple Watch apps. With the right choices your new digital timepiece will be so much more.

However, before you get started, remember to go into the Apple Watch main app on your iPhone - there you see a list of apps that are already installed on your phone and that can also be transferred to your Watch. If you see that you like the look of here, you must first download them to your iPhone.

Make sure you tag the apps you want on your watch - and turn off the apps you're not using, because that will cost you valuable space to add music - especially great if you have the Apple Watch 3 LTE version and an Apple Music subscription.

New this week: Rosetta Stone

Rosetta Stone is one of the major brands in language learning, and the different apps have won many awards because of the combination of effective education and user-friendly app design. The Apple Watch counterpart of the iPhone app is a good example of how the watch can be used to complement more fully equipped apps: it's tailored to the types of environments where the Apple Watch is the perfect device for quick training.

Rosetta Stone is about situations in everyday life: ordering in restaurants, choosing things in stores, greeting people and so on. The Watch is ideally placed to practice, and it is equipped with sensible categories and easy and quick navigation to help you get the little bit you need, with sound examples of how to do it.

The most important thing to watch out for is the price: while the app itself is free, it is useless without a language subscription. There are 24 languages ??to choose from and they start at $ 109.99 / £ 93.99 / AU $ 159.99 per year per language, with bundles for languages ??such as Spanish and French with 5 levels for $ 199.99 / £ 199.99 / AU $ 319.99. See the app as a demo for the Rosetta Stone service instead of a stand-alone app.
