One of the main conveniences of the Apple Watch is that it provides at-a-glance information without needing to take your iPhone out of your pocket, whether you are stuck in a meeting, walking down the sidewalk or watching Netflix on your couch. For a task as simple as checking the weather, the ability to simply look at your wrist will make Apple Watch weather apps very appealing for a lot of users.

Many developers have been quick to jump on the opportunity to release weather-related Apple Watch apps, including CARROT Weather, The Weather Channel, Weather Underground, Yahoo Weather, AccuWeather, Weather Nerd, Thermo Diem, NOAA Radar Pro and more. While the apps all share a common thread of providing weather information, each have unique designs and features that are worth trying out.

CARROT Weather Apple Watch

CARROT Weather for Apple Watch

Earlier this week, CARROT Weather received its first-ever update with Apple Watch support, bringing its humorously twisted 24-hour and 7-day forecasts to the wrist. Tapping on a section brings up a color-coded interface with more detailed weather information, including the current temperature, type and chance of precipitation, wind speed, humidity, barometric pressure and more. CARROT Weather is $2.99 on the App Store.

The Weather Channel will also be releasing an updated version of their app to support Apple Watch, enabling users to view current weather conditions, hourly forecasts with temperature and precipitation visuals, and weekend forecasts. The app also offers customizable real-time notifications for rain, snow, lightning and severe weather on your wrist, and features a live radar based on your GPS location. The Weather Channel app is free on the App Store.

Weather Underground Apple Watch

Weather Underground for Apple Watch provides current conditions, 10-day forecasts, severe weather alerts, radar imagery and more on the wrist, with Force Touch navigation for quick access to hourly, ten-day forecasts and saved locations. The app can also notify you about the latest National Weather Service severe weather alerts in the United States. Weather Underground is free on the App Store.

Yahoo Weather for Apple Watch features a sleek design that provides the current temperature at a glance, alongside the current weather conditions, type and chance of precipitation, wind speed, barometric pressure, sunrise and sunset times, and more. Yahoo Weather is free on the App Store.

AccuWeather for Apple Watch features MinuteCast, which provides minute-by-minute precipitation forecasts for the forthcoming two hours hyper-localized to your exact street address or GPS location. The app keeps you up to date with other current weather conditions based on your location, including temperature, the forecasted high and low for the day, wind speed, and times for sunrise or sunset. Breaking weather notifications in the U.S. can also be enabled. AccuWeather is free on the App Store.

Early watch reviews said launching apps that needed to access your location took painfully long. Longer than the effort to just use your phone. I wonder how these weather apps are handling this, because if the glance isn't instantly the up-to-date weather info, it won't be very useful.

When they said that it took painfully long, I think they were refering to getting the watch delivered. And from my perspective is definitely painful.:mad:

So, this is yet again only giving a benefit if you're too lazy to get your phone out of your pocket. And since no one is that lazy, the point I'm making is that this is LESS useful than what you already have.
Funny that almost everybody switched from pocket watches to wristwatches when the latter became practical. Surely nobody is that lazy that not having to pull out your watch out of your pocket to check the time is a benefit worth getting a wristwatch.

There's a hilarious app I use (that is also useful) called
Authentic Weather
. It has, shall we say, rather honest takes on the weather forecast. Example from what it's showing me right now: "It's ****ing okay. Look outside for more information."

Haha I love that app! They just brought :apple:Watch support, too.
