CaixaBank has become the world’s first bank to design an application for smartwatches (a watch device that synchronises with mobile phones). The service, which is already available for the SmartWatch 2 from Sony, allows users to follow the stock markets via their watches.
The application lets users choose stocks and indices from international markets (IBEX35, Dow Jones, NASDAQ, Eurostoxx, etc.) and follow them on their smartwatches. The watch will display recent price information for each stock and index, as well as fluctuations since the start of the market session. Should users want more detailed information, selecting the stock on the smartwatch screen will automatically open the CaixaBank stock market application on their mobile device, displaying full information for the selected stock.
The smartwatch service is included in the latest update for the Bolsa Abierta application for Android provided by CaixaBank. It can now be downloaded for free via Google Play or the CaixaBank app store, CaixaMóvil Store.
