One of the keys to Amazon’s success is the fact that it doesn’t try to maintain platform exclusivity, so long as the platform is viable you can always expect Amazon to release an app for it. That’s why its no surprise that the company will be bringing its official app to the Apple Watch so that you’ll be able to shop online straight from your wrist and isn’t supposed to be very different from Amazon’s official Android Wear app.
Though online retailer Amazon wasn’t among one of the many applications Apple introduced this week as coming soon to its new wearable device, the Apple Watch, the company does have an Apple Watch version of its mobile shopping app in the works, we understand. The shopping app will allow consumers to search for products and even buy them from their wrist using Amazon’s 1-Click ordering system. Of course, it’s not surprising that Amazon will address the forthcoming mobile platform – after all, the company tends to release a version of its shopping app on almost any viable mobile or connected platform, not just its own Kindle hardware. And it already has an Android Wear (i.e., smartwatch) version of its shopping app in the wild, so it makes sense that it would build the Apple Watch counterpart, too.
