Amazon is now allowing customers who have Apple Watch to simply tap its Amazon shopping app on the watch and purchase items in seconds,  or save an idea for later, according to a press release by Amazon.

The Amazon Shopping app is available on the Apple Watch in Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, U.S.  and the U.K.  The shopping app is designed for the on-the-go customer, and offers a tailored Amazon experience including voice search and quick tap features include 1-click purchase and save to Wish List.

The Amazon app for Apple Watch includes several features:

Search the Amazon Catalog:  The Amazon shopping app allows Apple Watch customers to search the Amazon catalog and find glanceable product information such as product name, price, shipping information, product images and star ratings.

1-Click Purchase: With the 1-click purchase feature on millions of eligible items, customers can go from search to purchase, making it easier to order familiar items.

Add to Wish List:  Customers can add to any item to their Wish List.

Save a Shopping Idea:  Customers will be say a shopping idea and save it for later.

Get More Information from iPhone: If Amazon customers want additional search results or more product information while shopping,; they can use Handoff and open the search or product detail page in the Amazon shopping app on their phone.

In March, Amazon introduced Dash to the public, which allows Amazon Prime members to press a button of a specific brand that sends a message via wifi to a customer’s Amazon mobile shopping app confirming that an order has been placed.  Users can pre-determine the quantities they want delivered and get an order notification allowing them to cancel the order.

In addition, a separate wand-like Dash device lets shoppers either scan UPC codes or speak to reorder products.   Among the 18 brands that initially jumped on the Dash bandwagon include Glad, Gillette, Gerber, Cottonelle, Tide (no, not Dash – that’s just available in Europe) and Olay.
