New Zealand's Westpac Bank is investing in Apple's smart watch in developing an app for the upcoming wrist worn device. The app, announced by the brand on Twitter, has only been previewed, but will likely feature most online banking capabilities.

Westpac has been sure to align itself with cutting edge technology and is sure to make waves with this expansion into wearable technology. By ensuring its status as one of the first banks to integrate connectivity with the Apple Watch, Westpac is marketing itself to tech-savvy individuals who may be willing to connect with whichever bank has such capabilities.

The image tweeted by Westpac featured four shots of the app interface that included the transferring of funds between accounts and making a Mastercard payment.
