Road warriors, frequent travelers, vacationers, and just-around-towners all have something in common: They need the right tools to figure out where they're going. TMO put together a list with some of our favorite travel-related apps that offer Apple Watch support so you can get around like a seasoned expert all from your wrist.
Manage your travels from your wrist with these Apple Watch apps
TripIt (free) keeps track of your travel plans such as flights, hotel reservations, car rentals, and more. The Apple Watch app shows your important trip details on your wrist, and with TripIt Pro (US$48.99 a year) you get real-time flight alerts, too.

Sorting out public transportation routes and schedules is so much easier with Transit (free) on your iPhone, and now on your Apple Watch, too. The app lets you plan your trips and build itineraries, save home and work locations, find car2go and bike share locations, request Uber rides, and more. The Apple Watch app puts all of that on your wrist so you don't have to pull out your iPhone just to see when the next bus or subway arrives.
Transit App has public transportation covered for 75 cities
FlightTrack 5 ($4.99) does just what its name implies: it tracks flights. The Apple Watch version of the app shows travel details for current and upcoming flights, shows flight progress, and gives notifications for flight status and gate changes.

Not sure where to stay or what to do on your next travel adventure? TripAdvisor (free) has you covered with reviews and photos from people who have actually been there. You can also compare airfares for your trips, find interesting places nearby to visit or explore, find places to eat and make restaurant reservations, and find the right hotel, too. The Apple Watch app offers the same discoverability, and lets you save locations to view later.
