AppleWatch support

I know, it's not very likely, but I got an apple watch last month, and there is really no working geocaching app for the watch. It does not need to do much, just show a map of a 100m circle around me and an allarm once I reach a 50 meter zone of a cache.

I thought exactly the same.

I would just appreciate a compass, a map and a possibility to log via Siri. That would be my most requested feature. Otherwise the app is almost godlike. :-)

The watch can't show a compass that easy, because it has not the required hardware for one, but a map would be quite helpful. Maybe there would be the possibility to link the orientation to the phone in your pocket, but realistically just a small map with your location and a straight line to the cache should be enough. Nice additional feature would be an alarm once you are close enough to save some battery on the phone.

PS: I would pay up to €9,90 as IAP for a good offline map watch-application.

But the series 2 has GPS and it could also use the compass from the iPhone. I don't see a reason why this would be a problem. The old official Groundspeak watch app also had a compass:

There is an announcment on the website for the upcomming watch-feature. What says the roadmap? I'd really like to use the watch for caching... :-)

If you just want the "proximity"-thing. You can turn on the proximity alert in the "normal" app. once you are within 50 meters of the cache, your iPhone will display a notification, so also your watch will display this notification.
I use this for caches where I roughly know the way to it, to only pull out my iPhone when I reach the 50 meter radius.
