Phoenix Suns Release App for Apple Watch

In an ongoing effort to enhance the fan experience, the Phoenix Suns announced a new app today exclusively for the Apple Watch. Released in conjunction with this morning’s public launch of Apple’s latest product, the new Suns app is available via the App Store for Apple Watch and will allow fans to follow their favorite team on their wrist.

“We remain committed to providing our fans with up-to-the-minute Suns information in the most accessible way possible,” said Suns President, Jason Rowley. “The launch of the new Suns app on Apple Watch accomplishes just that, and is the latest in a long line of innovative measures we have undertaken to remain at the forefront of technology.”

During the NBA offseason, fans will receive roster updates via their Apple Watch app, as well as the release of the Suns’ 2015-16 schedule. Next season, Suns fans will enjoy real-time score updates and be able to navigate the latest player stats and the team’s position in the NBA standings.

Developed in partnership with YinzCam®, the free Suns app synchs with the team’s existing mobile app for iPhone and iPad, creating a seamless user experience between devices via the native iOS feature, Handoff.

The new app for Apple Watch expands the reach of the Suns’ mobile portfolio, powered by Verizon, and includes apps for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android smartphones and tablets, as well as Windows smartphones.

The Suns are one of 19 NBA teams to release a custom app in conjunction with the launch of the Apple Watch.
