Long gone are the days of dropping everything to dig into a purse or pocket to find your keys or your smartphone. Thanks to Hyundai’s Blue Link™ Smartwatch app, now you can simply wear your watch.
The technology expands on Hyundai’s Blue Link services by enabling customers to download the Smartwatch app and connect to their vehicles through talking to the Android Wear watch. An app will be released for the Apple Watch when the watch becomes available.
“Blue Link subscribers and gadget lovers will appreciate a more convenient way to interact with their Hyundai vehicles,” said Frank Ferrara, executive vice president of customer satisfaction for Hyundai Motor America. “Now you can remote start your car with your smartphone, smartwatch, laptop, desktop or tablet. It is like being James Bond 007 or Scotty in Star Trek.”
As long as you have the Android Wear watch, a Blue Link subscription, and the Blue Link smartwatch app paired to your smartphone via Bluetooth®, you are just about as connected as today’s technology will allow. Voice commands will then enable you to locate your vehicle, lock it, start it, honk your horn, flash your lights, or call roadside assistance from anywhere in the US.
Pretty incredible, right? We at Glenbrook Hyundai thought so too.
