Amazon’s one-click ordering makes shopping on the Apple Watch a dangerous endeavor

Published Mar 13th, 2015 2:35PM EDT

The Apple Watch may make shopping easier than ever before. Though we haven’t heard too much about many of the third party apps poised to run on Apple’s upcoming wearable, TechCrunch reports that Amazon is busy prepping an Apple Watch app that will allow users to buy items with their patented 1-click ordering system.

The TechCrunch post reads in part:

In fact, our understanding is that the Apple Watch version of the Amazon shopping app will operate just like the current Amazon app for Android Wear. That means it will support the ability to search for items using your voice, save products to your Amazon Wishlist, and even the ability to check out quickly using Amazon’s 1-Click ordering. (Oh, this could be dangerous, I think.)

While Amazon hasn’t officially confirmed anything just yet, it stands to reason that the nation’s biggest retailer will want to get in on the ground floor of Apple’s upcoming Apple Watch app store. Indeed, in a statement provided to TechCrunch, Amazon noted that they’re “committed to being anywhere customers want to shop”, including watches.

This week has of course provided an endless stream of new Apple Watch related tidbits, from how Apple Watch charging works to news regarding the device’s replaceable battery.
