Turning your Android Wear watch into a running partner, the Runtastic app can help you stay fit and trim. Opening the app from the watch activates the program on your phone.

You’ll also be able to check today’s performance against your workout history. Just keep in mind that you’ll need to run with your phone, too.
Though The Guardian app works with Android Wear, you can’t actually scroll through various news articles on your wrist as if you were flicking through an actual newspaper (or browsing a website).

And unlike alerts you might get on your smartphone, you’ll definitely notice when big news breaks on your wrist.
Duolingo is a language learning application that you can use on your phone, tablet, and web to learn another language. It was among the first apps with Android Wear support.
