Here's why there is no native browser on the Apple Watch
Using a browser on the Apple Watch would require too much scrolling to make it a positive experience for Apple Watch users. While apps can currently run on the Apple Watch thanks to its pairing with the Apple iPhone, stand alone apps are expected to be available for the timepiece later this year.
Since the Apple Watch does need to be paired with an iPhone, if you need a browser your best bet is to slip your iPhone out of your pocket and put mobile Safari to work. The next Apple Watch is rumored to be a stand alone model and perhaps Apple will have something up its sleeve (like a larger screen) to allow a smooth browsing experience for that watch. The stand alone Samsung Gear S employs a special version of Opera Mini on that Tizen powered timepiece.
