Volkswagen Makes Vehicles Compatible with Apple Watch
Later this year, drivers will be able to control their Volkswagen with their Apple Watch.
The automaker notes that, “Apple Watch wearers can keep an eye on their vehicle from afar, remotely locking and unlocking doors and viewing the status of doors, windows and sunroof (open or closed). Consumers will also be able to find a parked vehicle quickly, with a map of the current vehicle location, walking or driving directions to the vehicle, and the ability to honk the horn and flash the lights remotely. As with the Car-Net app for iPhone, Apple Watch wearers will also be able to receive alerts directly to their Apple Watch from the app.”
Drivers of gas and TDI® Clean Diesel-equipped Volkswagen vehicles will be able to check their fuel level, while those driving the all-electric e-Golf will be able to monitor their current charge and estimated driving range, turn charging on or off and access climate control features.
VW Car-Net for Apple Watch will be available on the App Store for Apple Watch later this year.
