If you’re the type of person who needs to be constantly updated with movements in the stock market, especially with the performance of your own investments, then you’ll be happy to know that you’ll be able to do so now by just glancing at your wrist. Robinhood, the popular free stock trading app, is now available for your smartwatch, if your wearable is running on the Android Wear platform and it is free as well.
If you’re not familiar with Robinhood but you’re interested in stock trading and things related to that, then you better get on board with this app. It is a free app that removes the additional step (and additional money) when you need to buy and sell stocks. No need to go through a broker but just go directly to the app. But of course you have to be familiar with how the whole system works. You can monitor the market data in real time, create a personalized watchlist of stocks that you want to keep your eye on, and then place your trades with just a few easy steps and taps.
With the Android Wear version, you can pretty much do the same as you can see your portfolio performance and check on any of your holdings just by tapping on the stocks. You can view your entire watchlist by vertically scrolling on your device. You will also be able to receive notifications on your wearable for your account and trading information. The app also has day and night mode so that it will also reflect the hours and moves on the market.
If you have an Android Wear device, you can download the Robinhood free stock trading app for free from the Google Play Store.
