Morningstar Launches Apple Watch App

Morningstar says it has launched one of the first market-monitoring applications (apps) for use on the Apple Watch.

Morningstar’s free app is an extension of its existing iPhone app and part of a suite of eight smartphone and tablet applications for use by individual investors and financial advisers, the firm notes.

Mike Barad, who heads mobile solutions for Morningstar, says the latest mobile launch “builds on our commitment to meeting investors where they are in new and innovative ways.”

“Wearable technology is becoming mainstream, and the Morningstar Apple Watch app offers a simple, at-a-glance way for investors to keep tabs on market activity, featuring global market data and market-moving news headlines curated by our editors,” he explains. “The app also showcases our proprietary U.S. Market Barometer, an instant, visual depiction of market activity and trends.”
