Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) is reportedly developing a mobile shopping app targeting Apple Watch community. The device has not yet come to market but Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) recently introduced various applications that will be available on it. Amazon already has a mobile shopping app for Android Wear, and given the company’s desire to always innovate for its customers, support for Apple Watch is widely expected.
Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) ’s mobile shopping app for Apple Watch will support functions such as searching for a product and paying for the same from the wrist device. Users of the app are also expected to enjoy the ability to add products to their Amazon Wishlist. The app is expected to be based on Amazon’s ordering system known as 1-Click.
It doesn’t come as a surprise that Amazon is building a shopping app for Apple Watch. The company tends to push out its shopping app on devices and connected platforms as long as it deems the move viable. Amazon also bundles its shopping apps with its own hardware such as Kindle Fire tablet and Fire Phone.
