AI reader - Because it can use text to speech to have ebooks read out loud
Es File Explorer Pro - has some upsides; like streaming movies from the NAS, etc
Google Fit - Step counter and I like to dump all my sporting activities into it
Google Gboard - Because of swipe, and mostly because it can float around so that you can access all the keys in the watch, even return
Gliderun - Not using it much since I switched to MyRunningApp (which will soon have full heart rate support for our full android watches)
HeartOnTop - I use it simultaneously with MyRunningApp to get HR into google fit
Google Maps - good to have
Google text to speech - for having things read out; everything from running/biking performance to e-books.
Microsoft Edge (developer’s edition) - because it’s better than chrome
Music control - because my true wireless buds are awesome but can’t skip songs, this allows me to press the bubble which expands and lets me control music playback.
Music Player Bass Booster Free download - A music player that has awesome bass boost and EQ and uses the least amount of CPU doing so. I tested 20 different ones and this one is the best.
MyRunningApp - I can get voice coaching, stats, sync to Strava and Google fit, has GPS, camera, workout programs, interval training, route follow, gdrive backup, set 1 sec precision for fast moving bike & runs or up to once an hour for long hikes. Also heart rate on bluetooth devices or ant+… Best part is, however, that I’m helping test true optical heart rate sensor support for our full android watches. So get this app!! Free version shows sometimes a small banner, but no other limitation. Pro version very cheap.
Netflix - because I can stream an entire movie on the watch before battery dying
Play services updater
Smart touch - allows to hit a bubble which can do anything from changing volume or brightness to app launching
Strava - although not really needed, I use this to check strava segments from exported sessions from MyRunningApp (I use FitnessSyncer to send Strava & Fit to S-Health)
VLC - because I can watch a lord of the rings movie before battery dies or have it layer a movie on top of my sporting app while out and about.
Voice - Because it’s the best audiobook player for me. Has a convenient widget.
Droid Watch - because it trumps wiiwatch
Viber - Because whatsapp is a little boring in comparison
They’re rolling out a new version that supports sleep data this week. It’s available for my watch now (started using it yesterday) but not yet for my tablet. It tracks your sleep and wake times daily, weekly, monthly or yearly. It doesn’t seem to track the quality of sleep.
I would like to try MyRunningApp but it doesn’t show on the Play Store on my watch and if I try to install from the site it says my device is not compatible with the app (I have a Lemfo Lem8). It looks like a Wear OS app, how could you install on your full android watch?
I just downloaded from the google play store. The app is for phones. You can possibly install the app on your phone then create an apk which you can send to your watch. On my watch it shows up and installs without problem. Weird
Has anyone successfully installed MyRunningApp from Google play?
Try this link on your watch (touch the grey play.googledotcom)
