Ultimate Photo Editor Lite
What it does: 
If you can take a selfie on your Apple Watch, you should be able to edit it right? Right. The Ultimate Photo Editor Lite isn’t exactly a replacement for Photoshop, but it definitely covers the essentials. Enhance your photo with basic editing tools and add filters, frames or light leaks. Save your finished work of art in high-resolution and share with your friends and social networks right from your watch.
Cost:
 Free

Supercat Momo
What it does:
While we’re all obsessed with Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector, it sadly isn’t yet available for Apple Watch. So, feed your cat-hoarding addiction with Supercat Momo. In this Super Mario-style adventure game, you become a cat trying to protect your village from the threat of fiery dragons. Jump and run to collect coins and defeat your enemies. All in a day’s work, right?
Cost:
Free + in-app purchases

Runkeeper
What it does:
Whether you run marathons or are working on your New Year’s resolutions, Runkeeper is the perfect app for motivating you to hit the pavement. Compare each run to track your progress and achieve fitness goals by saving your distance, time and heart rate. For beginners, try the run/walk training plans to help ease into your ambitious fitness routine. Bonus: You can sync your customized Spotify or iTunes playlists with this app.
Cost: 
Free + in-app purchases

BLINQ
What it does: 
Similar to Tinder, BLINQ prompts you to swipe to say “Hi” or “Bye” to other app users/potential hook-ups in your area. Out with your friends? Check out InstaConnect to find matches at the same bar or club in real-time. But that’s not all: Stay up-to-date on the the most popular events in your city using HotList or see which area has the most activity on the HeatMap.
Cost:
Free

Keep 
What it does:
If Pinterest and your shopping addiction came together and had a baby, it would be Keep. Discover new products when you scroll through Keep’s endless feed of the latest in fashion, decor and design. Each item is linked to an online store allowing you to check the price and purchase directly through the app. If you see something you like but aren’t ready to buy, save for later in a customizable collection. Our favourite feature? If you “keep” an item in your collection, you’ll receive a notification as soon as it goes on sale. 
Cost:
Free (aside from all the $$$ we will now be spending on sale items directly from our watches)
