Xero enters smartwatch space

Cloud accounting software provider Xero has hit the emerging smartwatch market, with the launch of the Xero for Apple Watch app.

The decision to enter the smartwatch space stems from the company’s acknowledgement of the time pressures placed upon small business, with Xero claiming an ever-growing need to access business tools at any hour.

Integrated within the app is the ability to view transactions, receive notifications when invoices and bills have been paid, and to access accounts across multiple banks.
