App Store for Apple Watch Apps Goes Live

The Apps for Apple Watch are now listed in iTunes and are ready for download.

The Apple Watch is shipping tomorrow April 24 in select markets. Just hours ahead of the shipment the iTunes Store has started to list the available Apple Watch Apps. It is not clear what the ranking is here, but the first Apple Watch App listed is Pandora followed by Instagram and Twitter.

Other featured Apple Watch apps include iHeartRadio, Shazam, Fandango, ESPN, TuneIn Radio and Trivia Check. There is no official link yet, but to see all Apple Watch Apps requires only to put "Apple Watch" as search query into the search field.

The Apple Watch starts at $349 for the small case (38mm) Sport Edition. The Apple Watch Pre-order starts on April 10 in 9 countries (Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the US) and the Apple Watch ships on April 24.

Apple Watch introduces a new design and iOS-based user interface created specifically for a smaller device. Apple Watch features the Digital Crown, a new way to scroll, zoom and navigate fluidly, without obstructing the display. The Digital Crown also serves as the Home button and a quick way to access Siri. The Retina display on Apple Watch features Force Touch, a technology that senses the difference between a tap and a press, providing a new way to access controls within Apple Watch apps. 

The Apple Watch introduces the Taptic Engine and a built-in speaker that together discreetly enable an entirely new vocabulary of alerts and notifications you can both hear and feel. Apple custom-designed its own S1 SiP (System in Package) to miniaturize an entire computer architecture onto a single chip. Apple Watch also features Wi-Fi 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 4.0 to pair seamlessly with your iPhone. Besides the smart watch features the Apple Watch keeps time to within 50 milliseconds of UTC, the universal time standard when synching regularly with the iPhone.
