    The Apple Reminders app doesn't come stock on the Apple Watch. So what are you folks who have received your watches (unlike me--until July at least) using to keep track of shopping and errands and projects, and how is it working for you?

    Reminders comes up for me when I set alarms... Other than that I don't really worry about it.

    I'm really hoping they add a reminders app to the next update. Being able to scroll through my shopping list without pulling out my phone while grocery shopping would be great. I tried using wunderlist which is a well made watch app but then I'm constantly having to refer back to my shopping list in reminders, which I share with my wife. I ended up resorting to creating a workflow that shows me my reminders on the watch but it loads slowly and only shows one item at a time so it's not really ideal.

    I configure reminders on my iPhone and let them remind me on the watch. And for quick notes, I’m using Note To Selfie (link below).

    Thanks for the replies folks! Yeah it seems silly that the Reminders app is not included. Anyone using Evernote or Things or another 3rd party app?

    Note to Selfie looks promising! I'll have to look into that one...

    I'm a big user of Evernote, but not on my Watch. The way I use Evernote is impractical with the Watch in my regard. I use my Watch primarily for alerts, quick replies, quick glances, and fitness. I do use it for call purposes on occasion as well as with Pay (worked like a charm).......Regarding lists, I prefer to use my iPhone.

    Yeah D the way it's set up now it seems like it would be a pain. I guess I won't know for sure until it's on my wrist, but I was expecting to be able to use the watch for shopping without having to pull out my phone and push the cart! Yeah I know definitely not a major stressor in my life, but still it would be neat. Also daily reminders end up scrawled on my hand with a Sharpie; it would be terrific to not need to do that any more...

    I just found one called Wunderlist. Seems pretty basic but useful. Has anyone tried this one on their Apple Watch yet?

    You can share lists in Wunderlist as well, might make everything easier

    Try Reminders Nano: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/remi...mUvbUpU2517890 . Basically works just like the Reminders app, except on your watch. Best I've found.

    Yes, and it's okay. It serves it's purpose, but I only use it for referencing purposes. I've yet to create a note via the OneNote app on my Watch.

    I use CLEAR to keep my grocery and shopping lists, and it has a nice UI on the watch...

    Yep, another vote for Clear here - nice gesture-driven interface on the iPhone and as lackster says, a nice UI watch-wise ...

    I've had Clear and have used it on watch. Do like it. Got Note to Selfie as recommended here. Really like being able to record a quick note/reminder on the fly. Simple, basic, easy to use.

    Up Next app on iPhone will read lists created in Reminders, such as Groceries, and display them in both the Apple Watch app extension and Glances.

    I have used 2do for a really long time and the Apple Watch app is a great addition.

    Plus since it has actionable notifications I am able to snooze or mark complete my tasks from the watch

    2Do

    I'd like 2do but I have a Lifeproof and swiping those screens doesn't work all that well
