A developer has now come up with an application that allows the wearables to control the Model S.
A developer named Allen Wong from Rego Apps has come up with a new application for the Apple Watch that would make it possible for the owner of a Tesla Model S electric car to be able to access the basic functions of the vehicles from the convenience of his or her wearable technology device.
In this way, those functions can be controlled by the wearer of the smartwatch to improve the vehicle’s convenience.
The design of the Apple Watch App is such that it makes it possible for a user to complete a large number of functions that range from controlling the air conditioning settings to even opining the roof. Rego Apps went to the extent of documenting the app and sharing it over a YouTube video in order to help to demonstrate exactly what it is capable of doing. The video pointed out that this application doesn’t require the smartwatch wearer to be close to the electric car in order to control it.
The Apple Watch app makes it possible to access each of the controls remotely, all over the internet.
The video explained that “(T)he craziest part is that this can all be done remotely. You don’t even need to be near the car to issue the commands. It’s all communicated through the internet.”
The number of different things that the smartwatch application is capable of providing actually reaches beyond some of the options that are available through the official app from Tesla that also provides some remote functions through a vehicle owner’s smartphone. Among the various features that the wearable technology have to offer includes the chance to unlock or lock the car doors, to change the charge limit of the vehicle, to alter the climate control settings such as the air conditioner, to identify the position of the vehicle on a map through geolocation technology, and even use the wearables as a type of key for remote starting.
What has yet to be know is how many people have both an Apple Watch and a Tesla Model S so that they will actually be able to try to benefit from this wearable technology app.
