The Apple Watch App Store is now live and it’s packed with way more apps than we expected.

Even if you don’t have an Apple Watch yet, you can start exploring the new Apple Watch App Store in the companion iPhone app. The App Store began to roll out this morning, and Apple says it will include over 3,000 apps for users to install when orders deliver tomorrow.

Developers began rolling out support for the Apple Watch to their iPhone apps over the past few weeks, however, many didn’t mention the add features in their update notes. As of yesterday, WatchAware has cataloged 2248 approved Apple Watch apps, but an Apple spokes person told the Wall Street Journal more than 3,000 will be available by launch.

The top of the Apple Watch App Store features sections for Work, Creativity, Travel, Health & Fitness, Communication, and Family. There also sections for Healthy Living, Learning on the Go, Savvy Shopping, Weather and more. There’s also more quick fix games than expected, and plenty of news outlets ready to blast headlines to your wrist. You can start exploring now by opening the App Watch app that is now pre-installed on your iPhone.
