- Reflecting its commitment to a digital future, BGL BNP Paribas has developed a simplified version of the Web Banking app for the Apple Watch smartwatch. The app, a first on the Luxembourg market, allows clients to use their watches to quickly check their balances and recent transactions for their main accounts without having to enter a code, thanks to the Express View mode of the associated iPhone app. The app is already available for download from the App Store and connectivity with the watch will be possible from 24 April 2015.

Kik Schneider, member of the BGL BNP Paribas Management Board and Head of Retail and Corporate Banking in Luxembourg, says: “This innovation allows BGL BNP Paribas to fully live up to its reputation as The bank for a changing world and pursue its omnichannel approach, designed to allow our clients to interact with the bank as simply as possible using the most convenient channel for them.”
To support this launch, the bank is organising a contest, available on its Facebook page from 24 April 2015, which will allow web-users who have “liked” the Apple Watch demonstration video to take part in a prize draw and have the chance of winning an Apple Watch Sport.
