Technology

Streamlined from start to finish and built with SwiftUI - Apple's new language for user interface development - WatchMyTrain really gets the most out of your Apple Watch.

Adding a search is as easy as dictating, scribbling, or typing on your paired iPhone, and thanks to the built in database of stations, results are super speedy.

Once you've saved your search it's as easy as a tap, WatchMyTrain will load responses via Wifi or your cellular connection. Whats more, whenever you open the app searches will be refreshed automatically, making sure you're always seeing the latest info.5

A white label

Your Train Here

A great way to deliver on the expectations of your passengers and demonstrate your commitment to innovation, WatchMyTrain can be white-labled to represent your Train Operating Company.

Built on a powerful and extentable framework, WatchMyTrain is designed to work with any kind of rail data. Using open or private API's we can translate your organisations rail data into the same great user experience. Our proprietary Info+ technology can be fully tailored to your specific needs and data sources, delivering your customers the most personal information, right on their wrist.

Privacy

WatchMyTrain takes your privacy very seriously, so seriously in fact we don't want to know anything about you. When you search for a station a request is made directly to National Rail Enquiries and the result is sent back to you, we never see the searches you make or the responses.

Our upcoming nearest station feature uses your location to detect your nearest station if you give WatchMyTrain permission to do so. Your precise coordinates never leave your Apple Watch and they aren't saved, stored or analysed by us. Your location is compared to a list of stations saved on your Apple Watch, which then shows your nearest station in the app.

Accuracy

WatchMyTrain sources service information from National Rail Enquiries, we do not manipulate this data in any way and are not responsible for its accuracy.

Predictions of train facilities are made based on our proprietary algorithms and will occasionally be inaccurate2.
