App available on Apple Watch on April 24

TripAdvisor has launched the TripAdvisor Apple Watch app, available now on the App Store, the travel site announced today.

The app provides access to TripAdvisor traveller reviews, ratings and photos of hotels, restaurants and attractions, the company said in a statement.

The TripAdvisor Glance, one of the features of this app, provides timely recommendations to help users discover nearby points of interest based on the person's location (using GPS) and time of day. For example, at noon, TripAdvisor Glance will automatically find the highest-rated restaurant near the user's current location and suggest the place to go for lunch.

"With the launch of the TripAdvisor Apple Watch app, users can now carry the invaluable insights of millions of travellers on their wrists," said Adam Medros, senior vice president of global product, TripAdvisor. "Whether around town or travelling somewhere new, the app helps make exploring on-the-go even more elegant and effortless."

 Additional TripAdvisor Apple Watch app features include walking directions, saves (allows travellers to save their favourite restaurants, attractions and hotels, etc), and helpful search options.

The TripAdvisor Apple Watch app will be available from the Apple Watch App Store beginning April 24.
