If you primarily use your Apple Watch for all its health and wellness-related features, you'll want to check the new app from AI music startup Endel. Technically, Endel has been available as an Apple Watch app for a while now. Where this new version differs is that it's a standalone app, meaning you don't need your iPhone to transmit the sounds the app generates to the Apple Watch. Endel claims it's the first company to create a way to algorithmically generate stress-reducing sounds on a smartwatch.

As for the app itself, it works by analyzing your heart rate, as well as other factors like your location, and the current weather and time, to generate "personalized soundscapes" that Endel claims can help you relax, focus and fall asleep. Scientists aren't sure exactly how different frequencies affect the human brian during sleep, but there is some evidence that suggests relaxing sounds can reduce anxiety. The app also has a 4.4-star rating on 771 ratings on the App Store. Whatever the case, if you're feeling anxious and own an Apple Watch, it can't hurt to try it out.
