The wearable electronics business is projected to be $20 billion in 2015, and with the launch of the Apple Watch™, wearables are becoming increasingly integrated into everyday life. Vonage prides itself on addressing changing communications needs with innovative solutions, and the extension of Vonage Mobile® to Apple Watch™ is another example of our desire to be early to market as new device options become available to consumers.
Understanding that today’s consumers are always on-the-go, the Vonage Mobile App for Apple Watch means that users no longer need to pick up their iPhone® to respond to messages and calls. Whether stuck in a meeting or running through the airport to catch a plane, Vonage Mobile users can respond to incoming calls or text messages from other app users directly from the Apple Watch1 without fumbling through their bag or pockets to find their iPhone.
Adding to the ease of communication, Vonage Mobile for Apple Watch is one of the first wearable communications apps on the market that allows users to set personal reminders to return a phone call or message at a later time. This can be done directly from the watch’s incoming call screen, or by accessing recent calls/messages from the watch, so you never forget to return an important call or message!
Vonage Mobile users can also easily reject a call and send a pre-set “Can’t talk right now” message to the caller from the watch. In addition, they can respond to text messages with voice-to-text functionality or with one of five preset responses:
• I’m in!
• In a meeting, can’t talk right now
• Busy, ttyl?
• Running late, be there soon
• I’ll talk to you soon
Other Vonage Mobile features for Apple Watch include integration with the phone’s native contact list, call waiting and mirroring the iPhone’s notifications.
Vonage Mobile for Apple Watch is now available from the App Store for Apple Watch. A version for Android™ Wear is also available.
