Cryptocurrency is famously volatile. It seems like every day since the launch of Bitcoin there is a new altcoin. So, how do you keep track of it all?
Most cryptocurrency news sites have tickers showing the value of popular coins. But, what if you’re not interested in crypto news – you just want to check prices? What if your favourite coin isn’t one of the most popular three to five that are on most sites?
CryptoWatch could be the cryptocurrency monitoring app you’ve been waiting for.
What Is CryptoWatch
CryptoWatch is a cryptocurrency monitoring app by Cuberob. If this article inspires you to look into the app, make sure you’re looking at the right one. There are at least five apps with that name on the Google Play Store alone.
On that note, CryptoWatch is available on both Android and Apple devices. The app allows users to choose between seven supported exchanges. These exchanges are then used to monitor the price of almost sixty cryptocurrencies. The app automatically updates the information so that users know that their info is up to date.
What Does It Do?
The app allows users to add all of the various coins that they are interested in. This then creates a ticker-style display without all of the noise from coins you don’t care about.
If a user has crypto holdings, they can also link their accounts to the CryptoWatch app. This gives the user a look at their worth across crypto platforms at a glance. No more converting the value of each wallet that you have and adding up the dollar value.
CryptoWatch’s most exciting selling point may be the way in which it displays the information. The custom ticker that users create becomes a watch face on their smartwatches.
In addition to the coins monitored, users can customise the display in the CryptoWatch app and in the settings on their smartwatches. As many as four cryptocurrencies can fit on the watch face at a time.
What Do Users Say?
As of this writing, CryptoWatch has 115 reviews on the Play Store with an average of 4.2 out of 5 stars. On the App Store, it has an average of 4.0 stars.
Some users complain that their exchange isn’t yet available. For the most part, however, users dislike the default faces that are available. Even if you change the display from your smartwatch, the date is no longer included on the display. On that note, some users have found that going into their watch settings to change things about the CryptoWatch display is a little tasking.However, users do praise Cuberob’s support.
CryptoWatch provides some pretty basic functions. However, the functions that it provides aren’t really provided anywhere else. It’s hard to believe no one had done this before but all cryptocurrency holders should be happy that Cuberob has done it now.
