Snapchat & Pinterest are two engaging social media apps. Both these apps have millions of downloads in iOS App Store & Android Play Store. Recently, Snapchat has successfully achieved one billion downloads on Apple devices, which has been done by very few apps. In comparison, Snapchat & Pinterest are two different apps with user experience. Snapchat is used for its exclusive filters & status. Pinterest is used to get quick information via images and infographics. These apps are available in the App Store, but not on Apple Watches.
The lack of presence of these apps on the Apple Watch may be a little processor, small battery, tiny screen, and insufficient RAM & internal memory. Whatever the reason behind it, or the apps may come later for the Apple Watch. Till then, you can use the tips to use both social media apps on your smartwatch. I will not call it any tips or tricks, because it is a simple way to get notified from these apps. You can view the messages, delete them, or reply to them. To do so, follow these steps to use Snapchat & Pinterest on Apple Watch Series 6 & Watch SE.
