You can consume LinkedIn’s news-focused Pulse app via a handy wrist-sized interface, as the company announced today that Pulse is available for Apple Watch.

Reading on the Apple Watch, and other smart watches, is something that should be done in short bursts. Pulse accommodates for that by offering the ‘Top 10’ headlines in the app, along with summaries that invite the user to read more about the article on their iPhone.

The app also provides notifications for breaking news, and a ‘Glance’ mode designed to surface the most important or relevant article at the time.

There’s also the option to save an article to read for later — again on the iPhone.

The app is available today in the App store.
