I am one of those who think that publishing tool apps makes sense and at the same time it doesn't. You have it when these are useful because they replace Android lacks; You don't have it when we have these tools available for a long time in our system. The latter includes the Android watch apps, a topic that concerns us today.

We have looked for the best watch applications on Google Play. The results have been disappointing, to the point that about 15 downloads Only 3 have passed the test. Which will leave us a reflection at the end of the article when it shows the candidates that you may already know.
Timely: the most colorful but most abandoned watch
We start with a must If you are looking for color on your Android: Timely An app that ended up being owned by Google and has been one of the flags in terms of tools with good design. The problem is that it had been abandoned for a long time and, although it has been updated just a month ago, it was only to replace bugs and bugs.
This does not mean that it is bad, far from it. This application is colorful, very functional and also very customizable. We can change a large part of the interface elements and it is absolutely beautiful in terms of design. Without a doubt, the best clock app you can download.
Timely Alarm Clock, possibly the best and prettiest alarm app in the world
Google watch: the standard of standards
We continue with the obvious candidates, and it could not be missing on this list the Google clock app. This application, which is the standard of the standards, is owned by the great G and offers us a good Material Design finish (somewhat sober) and features with Google Play Services, such as the possibility that one of your Spotify songs will wake you up .
The Google clock app integrates Spotify to use your alarm clock music
Google wanted to expand the possibilities of its clock application by allowing the use of Spotify music as an alarm tone.
This app does not look for its design, but for its stability and usability. It is a very good application that gives us what we ask and that gives us small details such as being able to see the time of other areas of the world or the aforementioned integration with Spotify. Only problem: something brief in functions.
AMDroid: a surprise that doesn't stand out too much
We continue for bingo and finish with the third of our candidates: AMDroid. An app that is not a wonder, but that looks thanks to its functions; being an improved version of the Google clock app. We can establish profiles, rest days, use the location and others.
Although we can customize AMDroid is a simple app that lies in the details. We have the possibility to add notes to alarms, to establish a popup on the screen when the alarm goes off and the ability to edit our ads is wider than in other options.
Android Developers: if it exists, do not recreate it
When Android began to emerge and was lacking options, the developers came to the fore and started to create all kinds of tools to fill these gaps in the form of application. There were real achievements, like Timely himself. The problem is time (ironically), which does not pass in vain.
We have been with Android for 10 years now, and that is a long time. The system has matured and apps like the flashlight that swarm the Play Store no longer make the slightest sense, beyond being a potential safety hazard. But the average Android user does not think about this, and download this type of apps with developers taking advantage under a blanket of false promises.
The fact that there are no more than 3 good watch apps tells us the following: that we must move forward and stop launching apps to Google Play that already exist as a function. Apps such as cleaners, optimizers, flashlights or battery managers are nothing more than garbage that is used to generate money at the expense of user downloads, and having the basics is enough for us.
10 years of Android: the best mobile system has evolved
Ten years have passed since the public appearance of Android. A system that accompanies us in our day to day, which has evolved greatly.
The best watch app for Android that you can install is Timely if you want design and Google Clock If you want simplicity. If not, in your customization layer you will have an app that will work better than good.
