Ahead of the release of the Apple Watch later this month, PlanetRomeo, one of the world’s largest gay dating platforms, has announced the launch of its smartwatch apps.
“PlanetRomeo is a perfect match for the smartwatch,” said Sven Voges, Chief Product Owner. “Users will easily view profiles, chat and plan dates on the go. We’re also exploring cool new features. Imagine being notified as soon as the right guys are nearby or getting turn-by-turn navigation to your next date.” The smartwatch apps will work as an extension to PlanetRomeo’s popular mobile apps for iOS and Android. The company’s strategy is to work closely with the gay community to tailor the new features according to the user’s needs.
The gay community is known to be early tech adopters and will be a good indicator whether Apple will start a lifestyle revolution once again. The launch of the smartwatch app is part of a major revamp of PlanetRomeo’s platform in 2015. Their mobile apps for iOS and Android have got a slick new design and the all-new web interface has its Beta rollout scheduled for this summer.
