TIAA (New York), provider of financial services in the academic, research, medical, cultural and government fields, has launched an enhanced app developed for Apple and Android smartwatches that the company says provides users with up-to-date account information at the tap of the wrist. The watch app became available to customers in May 2016 and is compatible with watchOS 3 and the Apple Watch Series 2, which was announced Sept 7.

The app’s improved functionality improves access to total account balances across retirement savings, retirement healthcare, brokerage, bank, trust, mutual funds, life insurance, immediate annuities, after-tax annuities and assets held outside of TIAA, according to a company statement.

“Providing universal access for our customers is one of our top priorities,” comments Scott Blandford, executive VP and chief digital officer, TIAA. “Investing in mobile and wearable technologies helps ensure that our customers can stay connected to their financial picture anytime or anywhere.”

The watch app is available for all Android Wear devices and Apple Watches running watchOS 2 or higher and automatically downloads to a TIAA customer’s Apple or Android watch.
