The same day that Apple’s new and shiny Watch was rolled out (Friday, 24th of April), William Hill’s Innovation Labs launched an update to iOS functionality which makes it possible to bet with WH on the Apple Watch.
Needless to say, the British gambling giant has become the first company offering online betting for Apple Watch users. The update has been completed in almost 100 countries and the application has been downloaded more than 3 millions times now.
The most important feature of the new application is the focus on short user journey. Apple watch punters will be able to place a bet even faster than before, with just a few taps on the screen.
William Hill’s rivals have already announced launching similar apps in the nearest future. Many experts predict boom for wearable technology in 2015 which will affect the online gambling sector as well.
