1. Nationwide targets wearable banking with smartwatch app launch
Nationwide has launched an Android Wear smartwatch app, becoming the first financial services firm in the UK to provide account information via a wearable device.
Users can access the app by either speaking directly into the device, or by navigating through the smartwatch menu, while balance notifications can be sent to the watch automatically each morning.
The app is available via the Google Play store, and can be used on devices such as the Motorola 360.
