Can you get TradingView on Apple Watch?
Yes, but the Apple watch (or any smart watch) can only receive push alert notifications set by a user on the TradingView browser. Currently, chart data or general platform access cannot be done through the Apple watch.
Smart watches that run either iOS or Android systems can download the smart watch application from either Apple App store or Google play.
How do I receive push notifications on my iOS device?
Receiving notifications on your smart watch will require two things:
- Smart watch is synced with your iOS/Android device
- TradingView application is installed on your iOS/Android device
Once these two requirements are fulfilled, follow the simple steps below to successfully sync your smart watch with the TradingView application:
Step 1: Make sure you have the latest version of the application from the App Store or Google Play.
Step 2: Go to your phone settings
Step 3: Select Settings > Notifications > Choose TradingView > Select Allow Notifications
Step 4: Set up an alert on a security > make sure to select “Notify on App” This will send push notifications to your device. See black box below.
Important Note: The “Notify on App” option will only be available when you are using the browser version of TradingView.
In the example above, TradingView will notify me on my smart watch when AUDUSD is crossing 0.73450.
