Google Glass may not have an app library that rivals Google Play or Apple’s App Store, but this cutting edge piece of tech still has a number of insanely cool apps. If you own Glass, or are just thinking about buying a Glass kit, these are the apps that are certain to entice you.


1. Best Google Glass App for Fitness: Strava

Strava is one of the first apps that was ever made for Glass, and it is also one of the most useful. While Glass doesn’t lend itself well to high-impact sports, it is the ideal accessory for cyclists.

Strava lets you keep tabs on your current speed, distance, GPS information, and heart rate. This makes it a great fitness app for cyclists. There is also a version of Strava available for runners. Do note, however, that the limited battery life of Glass may make this app less useful than you might think.


2. Best Google Glass App for Travel: Word Lens
