THREE POWERFUL WAYS TO VIEW A WEBPAGE
----------------------------------------------------------------
You can view any page in one of three modes:

1) Simplified Version - Clean, large font version of a webpage that is easy to read on the Apple Watch.
2) Summarized Version - If there is an article on the page, this will use a mathematical algorithm to condense the article to only a few sentences. It will show you the sentences of the article that are most important, and summarize the essence of the article. Perfect for quickly reading a large webpage on your Apple Watch!
3) Full Page Version - It will show the entire graphical version of the web page. No, that's not a typo. It will render the entire webpage on your Apple Watch. You can even click links and interact with the page.

WristWeb allows you to easily switch between modes while surfing the web on your Apple Watch. Just Force Touch the screen while looking at a webpage...then you can view the webpage in a different view mode.

HAND IT OFF
----------------
If you find a page that you would rather read on your iPhone? Simply pickup your iPhone, swipe up on the lock page, and the page you are reading will be instantly handed off to your iPhone Default browser.

PRIVACY RESPECTED
------------------------------
Everything you do on your Apple Watch is private. No third party servers are used to process or condense the webpages. All of the advanced algorithms that allow you to enjoy the web right on your wrist are contained soley within your Apple Watch and iPhone.

OTHER POWERFUL FEATURES
--------------------------------------
- Create and maintain bookmarks directly on your watch
- All processing is done privately on your own devices (no third party servers will see your surfing activity)
- Simple navigation - Swipe right to go back to previous page. Force touch for the menu of options, etc.

It looks like this is a nice app. As I currently do not own an Apple Watch yet, I was wondering... Doesn't the Safari app come with the watch?

I don't know if this app worked on a previous OS. But as of Watch OS 3, I cannot recommend this app. For me, it works until you get to the search results. But once you try to go to a webpage, the webpage is unreadable. I just hear a Voiceover boundary noise when I flick left or right on what is supposed to be a webpage. I've tried all three modes of webpage rendering.
