  • Mercedes Benz Working on Releasing an Apple Watch Companion App This Fall

    Owners of a new C-class or S-class Mercedes-Benz who happen to be iOS device users and more importantly Apple Watch users will be excited to know that the car manufacturer is working on an Apple Watch companion app. The app, which is said to release sometime this fall will tout several different features that provide convenience to users.

    The main features of the companion app will be easy transitions between walking and driving directions. For example, users will be given the ability to select destinations on the Watch to provide walking direction to the car along with the ability to pass guidance to Mercedes’ COMAND Online system once the vehicle is started, initiating driving mode. Once you put the car in “Park” the Watch will then shift towards walking mode.

    The other features that the app is said to provide includes the ability to check odometer readings, fuel level, available range and the vehicle’s maintenance code. As far as support goes, Mercedes Benz is said to be working on supporting more models, which are promised to come at a later date.

    Are any of you Mercedes Benz-owning Apple Watch owners excited for what’s to come? Share your thoughts below!
