Bitwarden App to Apple watch + wearables

Not sure if they even read the requests. Seem roadmap is 100% for paying customers which i guess makes sense. But they could get a lot of customers if they added it. They could even add this to any of their paid plans

Hi thorrr, welcome to this community. I think your first comment is a bit awkward - I actually doubt you looked into the forums and see people like tgreer responding everywhere.
Furthermore, please have a look at the release notes. They show you all major fixes in the past. Can you honestly stick to your statement that they only implement for the paid platforms?

https://bitwarden.com/help/article/releasenotes/

This request which has been ongoing for years and has 1 of the highest requests.FACT.
My comment is about RoadMap not historical fixes, which I see no connection.
I also understand the business reason by BW but I have been a paying customer for several years.
But it does not stop me from having a critical opinion.
If you feel it is awkward then please ignore and move on.
Not all comments have to shower BW with glitter and praise.

Thanks, @thorrrr - we appreciate the feedback. I think what @JurgenG was trying to communicate is that if you look at the release notes, you’ll see that we’ve spent a good bit of time adding the most requested features from the forum :wink:

Also, note that the roadmap isn’t a step-by-step development plan. It’s simply a representation of our overarching themes and their largest features.

HI Trey
I left LP and have never looked back and love BW.
But the Apple Watch has been out years and the request for it has also been requested for years.
I think if you made the watch app part of a paid a paid plan you would get a big uptake.
IMHO your leaving cash on the table letting 1Password rule the roost.
Also, you are getting BW users moving over or using both!
You are implementing items with far less requests, you have even said in previous blogs / posts you may not follow what your customers ask for if it does not fit in with your roadmap or ethos!
That remarks clearly indicates you’re not as customer focussed as you guys used to be.
If you have no intention of doing it (which i would respect), please let customers know so we can decide of staying or moving.
If your telling me referral & Subscription gifting is more requested i would be shocked.

+1 from me for Apple Watch support. Is there at least a certain reason why you haven’t take it into consideration yet?

I’m still negotiating with my myself to switch to 1Password just for this feature…I would happy to pay for the Premium tier (of Bitwarden). Currently there are no features there that I need :man_shrugging:t2:

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! :slight_smile:

Myki now going to the bitbucket. Used TOTPs on the Apple Watch app exclusively. Bitwarden looks great, but a big step back without a Watch app.

+1 for Apple Watch Support. I would like to be able to unlock the mac app from my watch and 2FA support

This makes me sad. Came here to find out how to use bitwarden with my Apple Watch. Instead I found out that devs just ignores one of the most popular suggestions.

I’ll cancel my subscription today and move to 1password since it’s obvious that the dev don’t care about getting Bitwarden to the watch.

Bye bye.

We really appreciate the feedback and passion for Apple Watch Support. Our 2022 Roadmap outlines a high level overview of key deliverables for the year and is subject to change.

Our feature releases are a balance between serving our individual users/families, teams and enterprise, and our MSPs. We hear you, and your feedback has been passed along to the team.

So what I can gather from the roadmap (unless I missed something) is that the watch app (or unlocking the client via the watch) is neither planned for this year nor as a “future initiative”, is that correct?

Or it is an idea that is only being investigated or relegated to future development. The roadmap doesn’t seem to include those kinds of development items.

Yeah fair enough

I would love to see a Bitwarden app released for Apple Watch. It would be a great way to quickly access TOTP codes and general login info.

1Password and Microsoft Authenticator have watch apps that seem quite popular, I’m sure Bitwarden can do an amazing job with one. Keep up the great work!

An additional option to an Apple Watch app would be the ability to accept/allow biometric prompts (FaceID/TouchID) on the watch for all the different Bitwarden platforms: web, browser ext., and desktop. (I excluded mobile here since it wouldn’t seem practical to use your watch while you are already holding your mobile device)

4 years later, still no update for this?

+1 for this feature. Just switched from Lastpass to Bitwarden and paid for the annual membership. Now I’m trying to switch from Authy to Bitwarden for my TOTP uses as well but no Apple Watch support is preventing that.

An Apple Watch app for Bitwarden would indeed be quite useful.
I find myself more and more leaving my phone in the drawer and using my Apple Watch exclusively.

The watch seems to replace my wallet and my phone often these days and I just need my laptop and watch.

I am looking forward to release of the Bitwarden Apple Watch App!
