Jaguar wants to address to all of its potential and current customers that use an Android operating system. The British manufacturer, together with Land Rover announced the expansion of its wearable technology solutions with the introduction of its remote functions app to Android Wear watch.
The new Android Wear app introduces a suite of connected features, including the ability to activate climate control settings by remotely starting the engine.
The new Android Wear watch app also allows customers to check their vehicle’s fuel level, monitor its location and remotely lock and unlock the doors to let a friend or family member access the vehicle when the owner isn’t close by.
Showcasing these wearable solutions on the Jaguar Land Rover stand was Jaguar’s all-new crossover, the F-Pace. The F-Pace supports Android Wear watch and Apple Watch devices and is the first car featuring the innovative Activity Key. The waterproof wristband is designed for customers who regularly enjoy outdoor activities and allows owners to deactivate the standard key and leave it locked securely in the vehicle rather than carrying it with them.
The Android Wear watch app will be available on all future Jaguar and Land Rover models as well as on previous models fitted with InControl Remote or InControl Protect.
