Technician at my dealership reckoned it was a piece of cake.

His words were similar to "Undo the hex bolt and the calliper just comes off".

Is it that simple? Anything I need to worry about with the wear sensors?

I've changed brake pads before on other cars but I recall it being a different procedure.

Personally, I think it's very easy to do. However... If you think the
previous attempts were challenging, maybe you should let a pro
do it. But if you're in the mood to try, here are some sources that
are excellent. And don't get scared by the references to the e36
car. The parts, tools and proceedures are exactly the same on
your car.

This one is for rebuilding the caliper, but the disassembly steps
are similar for pad replacement..
