7 Minute Workout Challenge Is an Obvious Choice

Fitness apps seem like the perfect choice for Apple Watch. That's why the 7 Minute Workout Challenge app would be ideal. The app provides guidance on how to perform a set of exercises that can be completed within 7 minutes. Since Apple Watch will double as a fitness tracker, the motions can be shown on the device's screen and automatically keep time as users engage in the activity. It's a perfect use case for Apple Watch.

There's a Need for Adobe Reader Even on a Smartwatch

Busy professionals are getting PDFs all the time. They're also checking their watch all the time. Adobe Reader could make viewing PDFs a little simpler for professionals. While the small screen wouldn't be ideal for long documents, it would work out nicely for shorter documents that can be glanced at quickly. Expect Adobe Reader to make an appearance on Apple Watch and to grab business users' attention.

Box Brings Access to Documents

Box works well on iPhones and iPads, and it seems like a great choice for Apple Watch. The cloud-storage platform could provide easy access to all of a person's documents. In the event that the user wanted to view one of them, he or she could quickly glance at Apple Watch. For the corporate customer, having access to Box on any and all devices is a must.

Mobile Professionals Will Need TimeTrack

TimeTrack is the perfect app for enterprise customers who need to track the work they do for various projects or clients while they are on the go. These are professionals who need to track of their time but don't want to waste it inputting the details of their activities during the day. With TimeTrack on Apple Watch, the app could automatically start the device's stopwatch and input time on the fly. The invoicing option might be best left to the iPad version, but on Apple Watch, TimeTrack could be a handy way to record billable hours.

Mileage Tracking Is Another Natural Need

One of the great things about a smartwatch is that it's always sitting on a person's wrist and traveling with them wherever they go. That's where Mileage Log+ comes in. The iPhone app tracks a person's mileage and allows them to input travel expenses. Since Apple Watch has location awareness, it could automatically log those miles for users. It seems like a great option for Apple Watch.

Parkmobile for the Busy Traveler

Parkmobile provides travelers with easy access to locations of parking lots and the ability to pay for spots all within the app. While keeping a hand on the steering wheel, Apple Watch users could quickly glance at Parkmobile on Apple Watch to find a parking lot, find a spot and pay for it. It's a versatile app that makes sense on a smartwatch.

Social Networking With Yammer

Although Yammer's full suite of services wouldn't be an ideal choice for Apple Watch, having the ability to quickly glance at what's happening in an enterprise social network from the small screen would be a welcome addition. Users could keep up with what's happening at the office without ever needing to pull out their phone.

Yoga Studio Isn't a Stretch

As noted, Apple Watch doubles as a fitness and activity tracker. So it would only make sense for an app like Yoga Studio to make its way on the device. With Yoga Studio, users could quickly glance at maneuvers on their smartwatch while performing yoga. It's a popular app on the iPhone that would likely be just as popular on Apple Watch.

Get Real-Time Forecasts With AccuWeather

AccuWeather's real-time weather app would be a nice program for Apple Watch. The app provides the latest forecast details, radar images to track storms and more. Apple Watch wouldn't be complete without a weather app.

TripIt Keeps Travel Information in One Spot

TripIt is a popular app that keeps a person's entire travel information in one spot. With Apple Watch, the app could perform the same task but not require the user to keep pulling out the iPhone to check on a trip. The app could alert users to changes in their flight schedule, tell them where to go next and more. TripIt would be a useful app on Apple Watch.
