Nestled somewhere between an app and a complication, Glances are the ultimate evolution of the widget. Small, smart, and sleek, most of them require little or no interaction and need only seconds of attention, offering useful bits and quick shortcuts that are able to be gleaned in an instant.
But even in the specialized section of the App Store inside the Apple Watch app, Glances are given short shrift. Generally, an app needs to be downloaded before you even know if it has a companion Glance, let alone what it displays. With just 20 spots available to fill on your Watch, finding the right mix can make the difference between forgettable and indispensable, boosting the convenience of Apple Watch and seriously cutting down on the amount of time you need to spend tapping away at your wrist. So, if you still haven’t hit upon your perfect batch of Glances yet, try these selections on for size.
