AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- RetailMeNot, Inc., the world's largest digital promotions marketplace (www.retailmenot.com/mobile), announced today that it has released the free RetailMeNot Apple Watch app. The new wristwatch app is tethered via Bluetooth technology to the RetailMeNot iPhone app and alerts shoppers about nearby offers and deals.
