Hyundai Smartwatch App Revealed at 2015 CES

Wearable technology is becoming more and more popular and the smarwatch is leading the charge. At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Hyundai showed off a new app for its Blue Link system.

The Hyundai smartwatch app will work with cars equipped with either the first or second generation of Blue Link. The app will then allow drivers to remotely start their cars, take a quick peek at service information, and more.

“This new app expands Hyundai’s exploration into how wearable technology and Blue Link fit into a customer’s lifestyle,” said Barry Ratzlaff, executive director, customer connect and service business development, Hyundai Motor America, in a statement. “Connecting to your car through a smartwatch and voice recognition was previously something seen only in science fiction movies. Now, we can provide this capability to owners of Hyundai vehicles equipped with Blue Link.”

The app will be easy to use either through the touchscreen or voice commands. Can’t remember if you actually locked your doors when you got to work? Simply open the app on your smartwatch and say, “Lock my car,” and your car doors will lock. You can also use the app to unlock your car and even find your car in a crowded parking lot.

Will you be adding the Hyundai smartwatch app to your new smartwatch?
