Google Maps, Amazon & eBay all abandoning their Apple Watch apps

In the last few weeks, the latest update for Google Maps on iOS ditched support for the Apple Watch. Its removal was not mentioned in the release notes, and Google has not indicated whether support for watchOS will be reinstated.

It’s the same story with Amazon and eBay, both of which previously included Apple Watch support in their iOS apps. Both were updated in late April, and as of Monday, neither includes an Apple Watch app.

Further proof that the Smart Watch industry is still in dire need of that “killer” app.

Today they continue to be nothing more than a notification delivery system with overtones of fitness and health use.
