CommBank Releases Smartwatch Apps

Retail Banking

Customers of Australia's Commonwealth Bank can now track the movement of share prices and perform everyday banking tasks with a tap of their wrists following the release of two new smartwatch apps.

The CommSec Apple Watch app enables customers to track movements in the ASX 200, view their share portfolio, programme in alerts and ask Siri to get live share prices. 

Paul Rayson, executive general manager, CommSec, says the new app is meeting the evolving needs of customers as they migrate to mobile channels.

“Since the launch of our mobile app, we’re seeing more of our customers use their phone to get market information and make trades," he says. "Around 25% of logins and 11% of trades are now performed on mobile devices. Our CommSec Apple Watch app complements our mobile app, allowing our customers to monitor the market and their portfolio when and how they choose."

On the retail side, the Commbank app for smartwatches comes in Apple and Android flavours, and allows customers to view account balances, track ATM locations and perform cardless cash withdrawals. 

For mobile users, iPhone customers can now also securely login to the CommBank app using their fingerprint.
