Apple Watch App Store Up and Running

For a while now the Apple Watch app has had a non functioning tab labeled “Featured”. Now that Apple Watches have been delivered, the App Store styled page is up and running. There are a few categories of apps and you can now see thumbnails of screenshots just like you can with the full iPhone/iPad apps.
