What I like about the Runkeeper app is that you can set your personalised goals and track the progress over time. Runkeeper is not perfect though, and that is okay.

Top apps for Apple Watch: App in the Air

Think App in the Air as your ‘personalised flying tracker’. The app tracks your flight, notifies gate and security wait times, book lounges, scan boarding passes, track your loyalty programs, etc.
