Do you enjoy wearable apps? Then you probably know that wearable apps are a hot topic of discussion. These apps are getting more and more recognition among youths. We believe that this industry is expected to grow further as app developers are working towards the growth of such apps.

Now that we’ve reached the beginning of a new decade, we must behave accordingly. If you can’t use advanced gadgets, there’s no point in calling yourself a tech-savvy. Worried? Don’t be. We’ll list some of the best wearable apps of 2020 to increase your coolness quotient.

Let’s start.

Top Wearable Apps for 2020

1. Apple Watch

Well, if you’re a regular user of wearable apps, you already know that you can select from a long array of Apple Watches. However, we recommend you to use Apple Watch Series 4.

This watch comes with a larger screen and you get a crisp display. If that’s not enough, this device offers you more.

Apple watch series 4 offers you high speed and the speaker is also much louder compared to series 3. It keeps track of your heart rate and that’s a plus for sure. However, this device costs $349. For many of us, this device can create a hole in our pockets.

Also, let us be honest, the battery life of this device is also pretty poor. The longest battery support you can get is for 2 days. That’s it.

2. AccuWeather

The best thing about the AccuWeather app is that you can use it on your phone and also as a wearable device. Many users prefer this multi-support to a large extent.

Any idea what this app does? Well, it tracks temperature and forecasts about upcoming rain, thunderstorm, cyclone, and so on.

You can get this app for free from Google Play Store. A premium version is also available for $2.99. Let us help you out here. The free version is okay because the premium version does not have a lot to offer.

3. Calculator

You may think, what’s so special about a calculator as it is part of every mobile phone. We are talking about the calculator created by Xlythe here. This app is cooler than other calculators because of its advanced functions.

Along with basic calculations, this one lets you find your equation history effectively. Furthermore, you can wear it. Many of you may find the wearable functions a little restricted but trust me when you start using, they are fine.

Many of us especially enjoy this wearable app because it’s open-source and has a free version available in the Play Store. You may also get the premium version for $2.99.

4. Google Maps

Who doesn’t know about Google Maps! However, most of you are familiar with its smartphone version and we would like to discuss its wearable features. Once you start using this app on your smartwatch, you can enjoy better navigation facilities.

At first, many of you may find it to be challenging to use on your wrists, but trust us, it gets easier with time. We recommend you to be alert as long as you’re not comfortable. You can buy this app for free.

5. Samsung Galaxy Watch

You may also consider using Samsung Galaxy Watch. This model is of much lighter weight and hence easier to wear and carry.

The health features of this gadget can give tough competition to Apple series 4 any day. The biggest advantage of this wearable device is that it works perfectly for Android and iOS mediums.

You can buy this watch for only $150, so it is reasonable for sure. However, if you’re keen to use an app that can track your real blood pressure, you may not need effective results from this device.

6. Amazfit Bip

If you’re planning to buy a cool wearable gadget at a reasonable price, go for Amazfit Bip. You can buy it for $80 and it offers some coolest features as well. The best feature of Amazfit Bip is its battery life that stays intact for a week. This gadget is also water-resistant.

There are definitely some issues that users often complain about. This wearable device is not much feasible if health and fitness tracking are your primary concerns. It is more of an affordable and low-key wearable device. But, it is definitely worth giving a try.

7. Fitbit Versa

If you’re willing to spend a little more, then Fitbit Versa can be a wise choice for you. For only $100, you get a crisp and compact smartwatch. The fitness-tracking abilities, water-resistance, and strong battery life make it a favorite among the customers.

However, many users often complain that music transfer is a tricky job for this device. The heavy charger is also a matter of concern for many. To top it all, the absence of an in-built GPS often freaks out the customers. So, make your decision wisely, as you don’t want to regret later.

8. Podcast Republic

If you love listening to podcasts, then don’t hesitate to download this app for free from Google Play Store. It runs smoothly on your wearable device and you get a large library consisting of millions of podcasts to choose from.

Additionally, this app provides you music and language support and that’s a bonus. You may find this app a bit vigorous for your wearable device. But that’s cool, right? There is a paid version for $4.99. The only difference between these two versions being the presence of annoying ads.

9. Runkeeper

It is a fitness app and you can very well use this one on your wearable devices. There are three versions of this app available on Google Play store. Apart from a free version, you may also download the one with $9.99/ month or $39.99/year.

This app lets you set practical fitness goals. Once you start following them, it is easier to stay fit and lose the extra pounds. If you prefer any activities, you may modify your fitness goals accordingly. Don’t expect all fitness features from this app, as then you may get disappointed.

However, there are enough features to keep you glued. So, for a cool fitness experience, start using this app on your wearable device at the earliest.

10. Wear OS

Last but not the least, let’s talk about Wear OS. You can download it for free from Google Play store and it is the official app of Google. To make it work, sync your smartphone with your smart wearable device.

The major Google features available in this app include Google Assistant, Google Fit and more. There is no replacement for this app when it comes to speed on your smart device. Do you know that you can do a lot of fun stuff with it?
