AccuWeather has become the latest Android app to support the Android Wear platform, and it could well be the best wearable weather app so far. Rather than an incredibly brief description of the current climate like Wear offers by default, AccuWeather provides detailed forecasts with temperatures, precipitation information, and even alerts.

If you aren’t already using AccuWeather on Android and you’re a Wear watch owner, this is a great reason to switch. It doesn’t just deliver a series of cards like other Wear services — it’s an actual app that boasts a series of screens that provide different information.

One shows the current forecast and temperature — with highs and lows; one shows precipitation information for the next hour; one shows an hourly forecast for the day ahead; and another displays local weather alerts. It’s not quite everything you get inside the full-size AccuWeather app, but it’s still the most detailed weather app for Wear.

And what’s great about AccuWeather for Wear is that it comes with both the free and premium versions of AccuWeather for Android, so it won’t cost you a penny. Get it now from Google Play by following the link below.
