Fans of Bloomberg Business will soon be able to get all their news on the Apple Watch. The app lets you get the top headlines on your main screen and bookmark stories to read later. Using the motion detection in the Apple Watch, the headlines are updated everytime you move your wrist to glance at it. You can also have a personal watchlist that keeps track of a portfolio of stocks, funds, indexes, and currencies. You can monitor movement on securites, see total gains and losses, and get a list of “leaders” and “laggers”.
Keep an eye out for the Bloomberg Business app when the Apple Watch launches on April 24.
