Starwood Hotels & Resorts for the Traveler

American Airlines wanted to serve its highly mobile customers by having an Apple Watch app ready when the wearable starts shipping. The app will send reminders to passengers about flight departure times as well as gate-change information. The Apple Watch can also be used to check in for a flight and to check boarding passes at the gate. American Airlines developers actually made boarding passes readable on the Apple Watch.

CityMapper Let's You Know Where to Go

OpenTable Helps for the Dinner Meeting

Looking for a good spot for a dinner meeting? OpenTable might be the right option. The OpenTable Apple Watch app won't let users post reservations (that has to be done on the iPhone). But it will let them quickly find restaurants with available reservations. The Apple Watch app also includes a mapping feature to help users find their way to the restaurants of their choice.

Evernote Will Keep Ideas in One Place

Evernote is designed for folks that want to quickly access notes taken and stored on another device. In addition, the Apple Watch app includes the ability for users to dictate notes into the device and set reminders. There's even a location feature to find notes that were entered in a particular place or relate to a nearby place.

Salesforce Delivers Sales Information to the Wrist

The Salesforce.com app for Apple Watch is, of course, only useful to companies that actually use the platform. For those companies, the app is surprisingly powerful, offering a quick snapshot of what's going on at any given time, an analysis of top sales opportunities and how a particular sales division is performing. It sounds like a great app for executives that rely on the Salesforce cloud app to keep up with sales trends.

Lifesum for Those Who Want to Be Healthy

Lifesum is a health-tracking app that will automatically tally caloric intake after a meal. Based on that meal choice and the number of calories ingested in a day, Lifesum provides recommendations on what to eat next and portion sizes to keep the user in check. The app will also provide some insight into what foods to avoid.

CommitTo3 Makes Easy Work for Coworkers

CommitTo3 could be one of the most useful apps in this roundup for the busy executive. This work collaboration app lets a user pick three people and have them all commit to three tasks that should be completed that day. The Apple Watch app then provides "gentle" reminders throughout the day to keep people on track. Users can also tick off when they've completed a task from the Apple Watch and track other team members.

PayByPhone Parking for At-the-Meter Paying

PayByPhone Parking is designed for those who aren't parking in a garage, but on the street. The app lets users pay at a meter and then automatically keeps track of how much time is remaining. When the user is within 10 minutes of the meter running out, he or she is given the option to add more money to get extra time if possible.

For the average professional, it can't be all fun and games. Sometimes, using a social service, like Instagram, is needed. That's why the Facebook-owned company is coming to Apple Watch. The app will feature the ability to browse a user's Instagram feed and favorite photos, and to leave comments.
