Apple Watch gets four new Yahoo apps

Yahoo announced four Apple Watch apps on Thursday, revealing the company’s first new software for the soon-to-be-released smartwatch. The new apps are coming soon, but we’re getting an early look at their design now.

First up is Yahoo’s popular Weather app, which will offer a quick look at the current forecast using the Apple Watch’s Glance feature. The full smartwatch app will offer more information, including detailed weather data. You can even see what time the sun will go down with a few swipes.

The Yahoo Sports Fantasy app is also heading to the Apple Watch. Using Glance, you can check your matchups and view injury reports. You can even send messages to the rest of your fantasy league by speaking into the microphone.

Finally, Yahoo is bringing its News Digest and News Hong Kong apps to the watch. That means you’ll be able to access breaking news, quick summaries and bits of information like maps, infographics and stock tickers. Glances will also bring you the latest headlines once per hour automatically.

Yahoo says all four Apple Watch apps will be available by April 24, when the first smartwatch preorders are set to arrive.
