It’s still almost a month before the Apple Watch hits the market, but a number of existing apps have just received an update with support for the wearable device.
Things developer Cultured Code wasn’t specific about its Apple Watch app, but we were able to learn some information from the Sky Guide and Target release notes.
Sky Guide’s watch app will give users the ability to see a calendar of upcoming astronomical events like a full moon, meteor shower, eclipse, and others. You can also receive a notification when an event is about to occur. Interestingly, the watch app will also inform you when the International Space Station is due to fly over your location and allow you to send a tweet to an astronaut on the station.
With the pictured Target app, customers can build a shopping list on their iPhone. When in the store, the Apple Watch will display the items and show you exactly where they are located.
More than likely, Apple has opened the flood gates, and many other apps should soon receive updates with support for the Apple Watch. We’ll keep you posted.
And as always, make sure to head over to our sister site WatchAware and its Watch Apps portal showcasing a number of other different apps for the device.
The watch will be available to preorder starting on Friday, April 10. It will officially arrive on Friday, April 24.
Prices range from $349 for the Sport model to $17,000 for the most expensive 18-karat gold Apple Watch Edition.
A mid-range Apple Watch collection, with a sapphire display cover and stainless steel exterior, ranges from $549 to $1,099. Apple will also offer a number of other additional bands for the watch.
You’ll need an iPhone 5 or later to interact with the device.
