Pebble smartwatch scores hat-trick of finserv apps

21 March 2014  |  7328 views  |  1 Pebble

Just a month after opening its apps store to developers, the Pebble smartwatch has scored a hat-trick of financial services-related applications in a week, with the latest coming from credit card rewards loyalty start-up Wallaby Financial.

The smartwatch app is Wallaby's second foray into the wearable computing sphere in recent weeks, following on from the beta release of a Google Glass application earlier this month.

Wallaby's card recommendation technology uses merchant, credit card, and financial data, combined with the user's personal preferences to select the best card for use in distinct situations.

The Pebble app enables users to access their Wallaby Wallet on their wrist and get recommendations on the best card to use with a simply glance.



Matthew Goldman, founder and CEO of Wallaby says: "When you're standing in line you have just a few moments to decide what card to use. With our app for Pebble's leading smartwatch, you can see the right card on your wrist, without having to get out any reminders or other devices."

The Wallaby release comes just days after LevelUp announced the first payments app for Pebble and Fidelity Investments unveiled a market tracking application for watch wearers.

Anyone doubting the future of wearables should go to Samsung store on 28 March and try Gear and Gear Fit for themselves. Than add mass transit and multi-protocol payments to the equation.
