Watch OS doesn’t include a native Calculator app for the Apple Watch. It’s quite strange actually, that Apple hasn’t tweaked the iPhone Calculator and imported it to its latest wearable. However, this can be rectified with future software updates. Until then, I have a great solution for you! It’s called Calcbot and it’s a third party app, available on the App Store.

The main calculator functions are free of charge. Calcbot also comes with a handy Unit Converter feature, which instantly transforms currencies, distance, weight and temperature. In fact you can choose between 200 units across 20 categories if you opt for the in-app purchase of the PRO version. For the daily math usage on your wrist, the free Calcbot app is more than enough. It will even help you calculate tips for bills!
