Finding your way around in any city can be a daunting experience, especially if you are a visitor. I live in London and if I go to Edinburgh in Scotland I get lost. No one is a human map and it’s impossible to know every single road in your city. This is the reason why you need something to point you into the right direction. We have listed below some apps for your Apple Watch that will save you from walking down a dark lonely alley.
Google Maps – “Without doubt, the most popular of all the apps we are going to list. Google Maps makes navigating your world faster and easier. Find the best places in town and the information that you need to get there. Navigate the roads like a pro. Google Maps dynamically re-routes based on real-time traffic information, and even suggests which lane to be in. Beat traffic with real-time ETAs and traffic conditions. Catch your bus, train or car-share with real-time transport info. Save time with automatic re-routing based on live traffic, incidents and road closures.”
