How can I get the Apple Watch trading app and how does it work?

The IG Apple Watch trading app is available as part of the latest version of our iPhone trading app. If you can’t access the app via your Apple Watch please check that the IG app on your iPhone is up to date. If you don't have the app you can download it from the App store.

The Apple Watch app will only work in conjunction with your IG iPhone trading app via Bluetooth connection. Your iPhone must have Bluetooth enabled and be connected to the internet for the Apple Watch app to work.

The app will allow you to access all the markets in your watchlists, providing they are open. You can also access and close any open position fully or partially, as well as see its profit or loss and any stops or limits. This first release does not include the ability to set stops and limits, but this may be included in a later release. All of the streaming prices on the app will be live.
