It calculates your average water need with the help of simple information such as body weight, body height, age, etc. It looks like a useless application but believes me, it is the app that is necessary for all human beings.
Documents are a necessary part of one’s life. To manage your docs at one place, Polaris Office is available for your Android Wear smartwatch.
