Booking.com, one of the leading hotel reservation websites, has unveiled a brand new app designed for the incoming Apple Watch. Booking Now, which draws from Booking.com’s vast selection of over 625,000 properties in more than 75,000 unique destinations, is the first and only travel app to enable users to book a stay directly from their Watch, and in just one touch. With the help of Apple’s ‘Force Touch’ technology, which is designed to be triggered by pressure of users’ taps on the watch’s screen, travellers can more easily select and reserve the nearest hotels in Booking.com’s vast collection.
“At Booking.com, we are dedicated to empowering travellers to simply search and book an accommodation that is just right for them, no matter which screen or device. Bringing Booking Now to the Apple Watch is the next chapter in our relentless commitment to innovation. By integrating cutting- edge technologies we are able to streamline the booking process even further which allows users to secure the right accommodation with ultimate ease,‘’ said Stuart Frisby, Principal Designer at Booking.com.
The Booking Now app is available for download on the Apple Watch in 15 languages and constitutes the first travel app to allow users to book stays at a single touch, directly from their watch.
