Yelp has updated its Apple Watch app with compass functionality that helps you find businesses.

Now, when a business is pulled up in the app, you’ll see a small compass in the bottom right-hand corner. The app’s compass will turn in real-time based on where you’re facing and estimate how far the business is from you.

The compass feature is only available on Apple Watch Series 5.

However, any Apple Watch user running watchOS 6 will now be able to display their Yelp iOS app personal preferences on their smartwatch. These will be labelled ‘for you’ using the same heart icon that was recently introduced in the iOS app.

Finally, Yelp says it has “modernized” the look of its Apple Watch app across all smartwatches. The changes include an updated scrolling user interface and overall app design that closely mirrors the iOS app.
