OCBC Bank has launched its mobile banking app for Apple Watch users in Singapore.

The banking app enables the users to check their personal banking information through their wearable device, without the need to log into the banking app on their smartphones. Customers can also use the app to locate the nearest OCBC branch or automated teller machine (ATM).

"We are constantly exploring advances in technology to help us make day-to-day banking simple, accessible and meaningful for our customers. Smartwatches represent the next generation of personal mobile devices, and our Apple Watch app will offer the convenience, security and choice that customers demand when it comes to everyday banking on-the-go," said Aditya Gupta, OCBC Bank's Singapore Head of E-Business.

To use the app, customers need to perform a one-time activation on their mobile banking app. Once the app is activated on the Apple Watch, users can view their banking information and transactions.

The app is available for customers using iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus operating on iOS 9 and WatchOS2 for Apple Watch.
