Google Maps for iOS has been updated to support Apple Watch.

Keeping things simple, Google Maps will offer to direct you home, or to work, and can show you recent routes taken. You’ll also be able to get turn-by-turn directions, much like you can with Apple Maps.

What you won’t get is a rich map. Instead, you’ll see a simple arrow with the distance you need to travel before turning or stopping.

In addition to the Apple Watch view, Google Maps for iOS now lets you compare travel times between transit, walking, driving and biking.
