Currently, iOS 8.2 beta doesn’t have Apple Watch app access, but it does show Bluetooth settings. The app is a stand-alone app that allows users to manage Apple Watch settings. Additionally, it allows users to manage the download and installation of apps on the smartwatch. Lastly, the app allows the Apple Watch to share app processing load with the iPhone. This allows the wearable to conserve battery life.
