Top 8 Sports Apps Apple Watch

Despite the increased ability to stream just about anything these days with your favorite Apple device no matter where you are, every sports fan worth his salt will tell you that only one thing matters: the ability to check things quickly, and receive constant, detailed updates. As such, the Apple Watch is really an ideal platform when it comes to keeping on top of the exploits of your favorite sports team, even when you’re indisposed and unable to watch the action. The Apple Watch really gives new meaning the the idea of at-a-glance notifications, meaning that you can keep your iPhone in your pocket and simply check the scores as they pop up on your wrist, or tap away to get more details. But what are the sports apps worth considering? We recently took a bunch of those that have become available for a test run in order to find out. Check out our picks below, and then – in the spirit of sporting competition – why not take to the comments section below the article in order to suggest some of your own?

8. Onefootball (Free)

So, full disclosure here, people: you can keep your NBA and your MLB and even your NFL, for me the best sport in the world is football in its purest form. But being a big fan of the sport, it is often difficult to keep up on the latest news and also the latest scores. Many of the big matches taking place in countries like England, Germany and Spain will be happening at odd times becomes of the time difference, and while paying channels like NBC do an excellent job broadcasting stuff live, I like to keep on top of all the scores. Enter the Onefootball app, which has been recently updated to work with the Apple Watch and is great for checking up on past results, upcoming fixtures and of course for keeping on top of the latest live scores with highlights! – Download from iTunes

7. NBA Game Time (Free)

If you’re an NBA fan who like to follow not only the regular season but also the playoffs and keep on top of all the latest news and opinions as well as the scores, then there’s an app for that. The NBA’s official Game Time app was recently updated to support the Apple Watch, and it’s actually one of the more visually stunning sporting apps you will find out there. Rather than presenting the scores in a simply screen of text, the Apple Watch version of this app shows all the emblems and logos of the different teams: there are new features such as the live playoffs bracket, news, videos and of course schedules and all the latest scores and results. You can even pick your favorite team through the app and receive at a glance notifications for the team in question, right to your wrist. – Download from iTunes

6. Hole19 (Free)

There are quite a few of these GPS golfing apps out there, but only a handful have been recently updated to support the Apple Watch. Hole19 is one of these, and obviously transforms into a whole new app with the support of the wearable device, meaning that you can keep your iPhone safely wrapped up in your golf bag and use this Apple Watch app to check the latest yardages, course maps and that kind of thing. And the cool thing is that, given that your Watch is in contact with your iPhone, your stats will be recorded and you can check on them using your iPhone once back in the clubhouse after a round. – Download from iTunes

5. MLB.com at Bat (Free)

The MLB.com at Bat app has always been the go to app for fans of baseball both in the US and around the world, and this doesn’t look set to change now that they’ve updated the app to support Apple’s new wearable device. The app will provide baseball fans with live scores, statistics, pitch tracking, player cards, notifications and a whole lot more. And of course, as with most of the sports apps that have made this list, you can customize it to see exactly what you want to see, or if you are simply interested in getting a wider picture you can check out the league wide scoreboard to keep on top of all the scores. – Download from iTunes

4. ESPN (Free)

The ESPN app is one of those that Apple chose to focus on when first announcing the Apple Watch, and as such we might expect for it to be somewhat ahead of the curve and have already grabbed some kid of stranglehold on the sporting app market. Unfortunately for both ESPN and its users, that doesn’t appear to be the case. Still, the app is useful enough if you are an ESPN regular and would rather transfer the news that you take in daily via the television, internet or radio onto your wrist through the Apple Watch. You can customize the app to get scores, news and alerts from all your favorite teams meaning that you won’t miss a beat and – thanks to the at a glance updates that you get on your wrist with the Apple Watch – you will be one step ahead of your sports fan friends each and every time! – Download from iTunes

3. Sports Feed (Free)

Sports Feed is another great sports app that basically looks to present all of the latest updates from your chosen sports and favorite teams in one place and on one simple feed. This is more of an aggregated data setup, with the app pulling the latest info from a bunch of trusted sites so as to give you the latest info directly to your wrist from sources that you know are reliable. – Download from iTunes

2. theScore (Free)

Another excellent app for checking the scores is this one, which again doesn’t focus in on any one sport but gives you access to real time coverage from a whole host of different ones. So whether you are into football, baseball, basketball, soccer or even hockey or horse racing, the app will give you the latest customizable alerts regarding news, stats scores and much more directly accessible on your wrist. – Download from iTunes

1. Team Stream (Free)

I’ve long been a fan of the Bleacher Report as a sports website, and the app they created – Team Stream – is very much an exension of the same kind of content and functionality, though arranged in a way that makes it easier to take in at a glance. As such, the Team Stream app is ideal fodder for the Apple Watch’s interface and main selling point, which is of course the ability to check things easily and on the fly. With the Team Stream app by Bleacher Report, you can pick your favorite team from any sport and then customize the updates you receive, including: breaking news, live scores and also play by play details. While many of the sports apps out there seem to be designed by the sporting associations in question, this is one app that is clearly designed by sports fans for sports fans. – Download from iTunes
