Optimised for the Apple Watch, Wego's app alerts you to the best travel deals — perfect for planning a spontaneous holiday

The daily grind can get to us all and a weekend in some sun-drenched paradise makes for the perfect antidote. Getting to paradise, however, usually requires some effort. It's a pain to sieve through multiple booking platforms just to lock down flights and accomodation, but Wego's new app for the Apple Watch might very well change that.

Timing its launch with tomorrow's release of the Apple Watch in Singapore, Wego's app is one of the first local apps available for the device. It trawls through hundreds of local and international travel websites, ranging from Expedia to Emirates, to send you last-minute airfare and hotel options from popular retreats. These results display directly on your Apple Watch, making it all too easy for you to review, book, and head off for a weekend jaunt. Judging from the looks of Wego's idiot-proof functionalities, the arrival of the Apple Watch isn't the only thing to be excited about this weekend.

Wego is now available on the Watch App Store and App Store for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. More details here.
