Shop from your wrist is now possible with the new Amazon Apple Watch App.

Amazon announced the inevitable Amazon Apple Watch App. Amazon customers with an Apple Watch can tap the Amazon shopping app on the watch to purchase items in seconds, or save an idea for later.

“This is still day-one for wearable devices. And we are excited to offer new ways for our customers to get quick glimpses of information they need from Amazon through Apple Watch,” said Paul Cousineau, Director of Mobile Shopping. “There are times when it might not be convenient to get your phone out of your pocket. So we worked to distill the best parts of the Amazon shopping experience into fast and simple access points from your wrist. Customers can use voice search, 1-Click purchasing, and find all of the key pieces of product information they need. We can’t wait to see how our customers respond.”

3) Add to Wish List: Customers can quickly and easily add any item to their Wish List.
