Saudi Hollandi Bank (SHB) is to offer its customers a Wearable Banking Solution, using the Apple Watch.

The wrist-mounted banking application, which has been developed by Indian banking solution provider Vayana, allows customers to access a number of account services through the watch.

The watch app acts as an extension of the iOS mobile banking application, and provides account reporting including balance and mini-statements; notifications and payments.

Kannan Ramasamy, CEO of Vayana commented: "Exciting opportunities have been presented by emerging technologies and form factors. This has made it possible for us to ‘Reimagine Channels' in partnership with our clients. We have had a unique opportunity to work with Saudi Hollandi Bank in their journey to create an OmniChannel experience. The Wearable Banking is another milestone in positioning the bank as an innovator."
