ChatGPT, OpenAI’s megahit chatbot, has found its way into Apple’s Smartwatch collections. The integration is called watchGPT. watchGPT allows you to communicate with ChatGPT directly from your Apple Watch. Hidde van der Ploeg, the developer, posted this information on Twitter after submitting it for review a few days ago.

I’m happy to announce that watchGPT is now available on the App Store…Say hello to a new little assistant right on your wrist.


The features and the services it offers as an AI chatbot are quite comparable. Users of the watchGPT can ask ChatGPT questions and share quick answers via text, email, or social media.

Thanks to watchGPT, users can now create even longer messages without typing. However, it is currently unknown how many words it can handle. It can also be set up as a complication on your Apple Watch face for easy access. It does not collect user data, according to 9to5mac, and is accessible in English, Dutch, French, and Spanish.

The app is now available for download on the App Store, though only in a few locations. In addition to bringing new features like vocal input, a unique API key, and access history, it is presently working to become universally accessible.
