    "Digg is a news reader app that is available on iOS. I will work on your phone or watch. The site is popular and well reviewed but the app is seriously lacking. It only averages 1.5 stars out of 5 on the current version. There are definitely better news apps out there and available. This doesn't fit the topic."

    "Flipboard is wonderful and pleasant on an iPhone or an iPad. Translated to Apple Watch though it falls way short. The same great content but in a much more difficult to consume package."

    "The best news app for Apple watch is subjective I suppose. CNN is a nationally known news corporation and it is a decent app. But for me not the best, because I find their reporting too liberal, to each their own I guess."

    "The New York Times App is not an app I use that much. It works fine with my Apple watch most of the time. Sometimes an article I was reading doesn't sync and I have to find where I left off. It could be better. "

    "I am not a fan of WaPo, mainly because they have a huge bias, but if you're looking for a news app for your Apple Watch, this does the job. There are other apps that you can download that have no bias, and just give you the facts. This app ain't for me, but it does do what it says it does. "

    "Nuzzel provides customized "newsletter" type feeds that are generally worth reading. However, it is not clear if this app is still compatible with the Apple Watch. I have heard conflicting reports. Needless to say, you should check the compatibility of the app before putting a lot of time and effort into customizing it."
