You will use a Specific iPhone app to put apps on and manage your Apple Watch

After purchasing your new Apple watch, you may wonder how you will browse the App Store for third-party Apple Watch on the device's little tiny retina touchscreen. The users will use a dedicated iPhone app to mange the apps and tweaks on the smart watch. Ariel Adams noted two days ago in his hands-on article on A Blog To Watch.

According to Adams, he knew that the iPhone app will be used to download apps onto the Apple Watch, “as well as likely manage Apple Watch settings”.

Apple is already offloading certain functions from the wearable device to the iPhone. For example, GPS positioning and Wi-Fi networking requires a paired iPhone.

A user’s iPhone is also used to help with computational demands, Adams noted. “Apple cleverly pushes a lot of processor needs to the phone in order to preserve Apple Watch battery life”.

For those wondering, you’ll be able to use your Apple Watch during exercise without an iPhone in your pocket, unless you require GPS functions, because the device can track “a lot of exercise and movement data” without being connected to an iPhone.
“Once paired again, the Apple Watch shares data with the host apps on the phone,” he added.

The device starts at $349 and is “coming early-2015,” as per Apple’s website.
