I love my Apple Watch, but most of the apps are stupid, slow and pointless. But I’ve finally found a reason to use one: someone delivered Pong to my wrist.

A Tiny Game of Pong is a free game for Apple Watch that works perfectly on the tiny screen by using the digital crown to control your paddle. It’s cute, simple and makes sense on your wrist.

It’s not revolutionary, but it is a cool demo of how retro games can adapt well to the Apple Watch digital crown — plus, it’s kinda addictive.

The game is free for now, but will cost in the future, so grab it while you can!
