Google has released an update to the Google Maps iOS app on the iTunes App Store, thus making it available for Apple Watch users, as well. Here's how the changelog for the new 4.11.0 version looks like:
  • Easily compare ETAs across driving, transit, walking & biking
  • Call business & get directions directly from a list of places
  • Get directions to places now on your Apple Watch
  • Bug fixes
Now, when you open up Google Maps directly on your Apple Watch, you have two options - you have directions to get you either to your home or your work. For the time being there isn't a way to display a full map and if you apply a force press on the screen, this lets you swap between driving, walking, and transit directions. You can also quickly tap to get directions to recent places you've navigated to in Google Maps.
