Fifa 15 Ultimate Team is coming to the Apple Watch after EA Sports updated the game's mobile app to support some basic features for Apple's smartwatch, set for release this Friday (24 April).

Players with an Apple Watch will be able to receive notifications from the iPhone app (the Apple Watch requires an iPhone 5, 5C, 5S, 6 or 6 Plus to work in tandem with) and manage up to five transfers within the game's market (via Pocket Gamer).

New features are also being added beyond the Apple Watch functionality, including the ability to quickly build the best possible team from your selection of players, as well as custom footballs in simulation mode and boosts and tactics now reflecting in Sim Stories.

Ultimate Team has been a staple of the popular football franchise for a few years now. EA courted some controversy earlier this year when they made a big changes to the game's market in an effort to combat illegal coin farmers and other people exploiting the system for personal gains.

Speaking of Fifa, it's getting to that time of year when EA announce the next version of their football sim. Whenever they announce it, Fifa 16 will hit store shelves in September.
