Banking on your smartwatch

Save time checking your balance

Check your balance quickly and securely with Barclays Mobile Banking for your smartwatch.

How it works

Now you can check your balance securely and in real time on your smartwatch. You can access the Barclays Mobile Banking app with just a few taps on your watch, so keeping track of your money is simpler than ever. And, you can do it all safe in the knowledge that you’re covered by our award-winning security. 

The on-screen meter points to the left when your balance is low, and to the right when it’s high. You decide what counts as high and low, so it’s completely personal.

Getting started

You’ll need one of the following smartwatches

  • Apple Watch
