Yahoo7 has announced the 7Sport IOS app which is now compatible with the Apple Watch and has been designed exclusively to give users handy access to the latest sports updates anywhere and at any time – from their wrist.
The locally-developed 7Sport app features a range of customisable options designed to deliver a seamless experience for users across multiple platforms. Leveraging the unique functionality of the Apple Watch, it offers push notifications to the watch face, delivering match details and live score updates from 7Sport. With personalisation features, the app makes it easier than ever for Australians to stay up to date with live scores and upcoming matches for their favourite teams across AFL, tennis, cricket, A-League and English Premier League football, as well as rugby league and union.
Ed Harrison, CEO of Yahoo7 said, “The Apple Watch opens new doors for us to create even better personalised experiences for our users. For many Australians, checking sport is a daily habit or even a minute-by-minute experience when your favourite team is playing. The 7Sport app will provide audiences with access to the latest sporting updates all at a glance on the Apple Watch.
“As a business, we’re committed to finding innovative ways to give Australian audiences more personalised experiences, making it easier to stay connected to what matters most to them, virtually anywhere, anytime and across compatible devices they use most – whether that’s mobile, desktop or now via their Apple Watch.”
Australians love sport – as recently shown with Yahoo7’s huge success of live streaming the Australian Open online and across the 7Sport app. Now the Apple Watch will make it even easier for sport fans to stay close to the action that matters most to them.
