watchOS 3 has hugely enhanced the user experience of Apple Watch. What has struck the perfect code with Watch users is the all new user interface. For a change, the apps run quite smoothly and the UI looks really neat.

Just like several Watch users, what has impressed me the most in WatchOS 3 is the Dock. Now, when you press the side button of your wearable device, dock appears (and not contacts) on the screen with your favorite apps. You no longer have to hover around to get started with some of your most used apps. The dock has made it so simple.
