Joining the smartwatch apps train, Barclays has unveiled a handy program for the recently launched Apple Watch. Designed to make their customers' lives easier, it allows people to check the current balance on multiple banking accounts with a quick glance. Perfect for budgeting, it will ensure people are one touch away from knowing where they stand financially.

Although there are a slew of banking smartwatch apps currently being launched, it just goes to show how unafraid the financial industry is when it comes to adopting new technology. Through these particular smartphone apps, consumers will find the Apple Watch will make a bigger difference than some may have anticipated. That said, Barclays' particular app can still stand to be fleshed out. It will be exciting to see how that is executed in the near future.
