There are mixed reports and speculations on how many units have been sold since Apple Watch launched last month – some as high as 3 million units – but Apple has so far stayed mum on the topic. CEO Tim Cook commented only on the impressive number of apps available on Apple’s slick new wearable tech piece – 3,500 and counting.

But there’s one fact nobody argues about: Many of the first apps featured on the Apple Watch (which starts at $349) – from dating to musical education apps – were developed and designed by Israeli startup companies. NoCamels profiles five of the hottest Israeli apps that are already ticking on Apple Watches around the globe.

Apple Watches

WatchMe88

WatchMe88 helps you find your perfect match using the Apple Watch. With just one tap of your Apple Watch, you could be tapping on the shoulder of Mr. or Ms. Right. The app allows users to inform individuals around them that they are open to meeting new people with a subtle pulsating glow on the watch. Even those who are not using WatchMe88 will know that the user is interested in being approached.

The app has an invisible mode as well, which will only glow when more than one user has the WatchMe88 app and both users have chosen the same status. When they match, the smartwatches will glow simultaneously, alerting the users that they are available and interested in meeting new people. According to the company, which was founded by Yoav Elgrichi and Kineret Karin, the app aims to “leverage the power of Apple’s new wearable to enable people to find a match in public, bridging the gap between the online and offline dating worlds.”
