Let's get this out of the way: Setting up a new Apple Watch is time-consuming and a little overwhelming. And, when you go to load it with fresh apps, there are more than 3,000 to choose from. Don't sweat it — we've handpicked some of the best.

From maximizing your workout to keeping track of your ever-growing to-do list, we've found offerings that take advantage of the Apple Watch experience. They can truly enhance your life by helping you get things done.

You'll notice some big names (Instagram, Twitter) aren't on this list. Why? At least for now, these apps and many others work better on a smartphone than on your wrist — unless you just absolutely need to see the most recent trending tweets at every hour of the day. But, being able to re-order your last Seamless meal with a tap on your watch? Keeping hanger at bay is priceless. 

Read on for Refinery29's list of interesting, innovative, and helpful Apple Watch apps.
