Call me a slow early adopter. I just received my Apple Watch Sport in the mail yesterday. After trying out the different watch faces and silly animated imoticons, I immediately downloaded the apps from our (Xignite) clients.
I was anxious to know if I could really monitor my spending (a bit high this month on technology purchases) and portfolio performance from my wrist. Just how intrusive was it going to be to get a tap whenever there was a news alert for a stock I follow?
Day 2 and all is great! These companies get it! The apps they have created for the Apple Watch extend the ease of use and functionality of their iPhone and web solutions. I really can make a live stock trade from my wrist! It's exciting to see financial companies adapting their solutions to wearable technology. Check these apps out!
