Controlling our car from the Smartwatch is now a reality thanks to the Hyundai app for Android Wear
The future we will use our smartwatch is yet to be written, however, and begins to glimpse the path that until recently we sounded like science fiction. As we saw in the past CES in Las Vegas, Hyundai announced it would launch the Blue Link app for Android Wear from users of any of the compatible vehicles with this technology could control some functions of your vehicle.
Shut down or start the engine, open the doors, turn on lights or sounding the horn are some of the functions from now can perform directly from your wrist. The Blue Link application is already right now available for download from the Play Store and the company has already announced that a version for the Apple Watch is on the way.
What brand vehicles are compatible with the Blue Link app? Any of the first or second compatible generation with this technology, the first of them the Hyundai Sonata that was released in 2012. The company also announced that we can use voice commands to, among other things, locate where we left it parked our car.
Changing brand, much like we have seen these days in the MWC in Barcelona with TimeDictionary, a brand that has been associated with LG to allow integrating the new Watch Urbane with new vehicles . Thus, the LG booth had a lovely sporty Audi was the center of attention and that, if we wished, one employee could show us briefly how integrates Watch Urbane with the car.
Audi also think about the future: to open the doors or start the engine is already possible with LG Watch Urbane
Obviously, we have not wanted to lose that demonstration and LG employee showed us how he could open the doors of the vehicle approaching the smartwatch to it. Once inside, and placing the device near -imaginamos hand brake there reside the tricorder has managed to start the Audi.
Undoubtedly, the integration of smartwatch with cars could be one of the workhorses of this new product category in the not too distant future. In fact, Tim Cook himself recently revealed that the Apple Watch will be able to replace the keys to our carvery soon.
