The Wallaby credit-card recommendation app by Wallaby Financial will now be available on Android watches.
Wallaby for Android Wear allows users to review their current credit utilization and available credit balances directly on their device, and can be accessed using voice command. The app recognizes the user’s location and automatically serves up an unbiased recommendation on which credit card the consumer should use. Suggestions are based on the user’s preferences, whether these are to gain more rewards or cash back on purchases.
“Wallaby for Android Wear strengthens our stance at the leading edge of wearable technology. The app also extends our ability to provide valuable financial information and services to consumers in the context of their daily lives,” Matthew Goldman, founder and CEO, said in a statement. “Each successive wearable device launch allows us to further enhance the capabilities we provide instantaneously and conveniently to our customers. The scale and excitement surrounding the launch of Android Wear makes this a particularly exciting landmark for our team.”
Wallaby for Android Wear is free to anyone with a Wallaby account, and can operate on the Moto 360, LG G and other Android Wear devices. The app is now available at Play Store.
