If you own a Bentley Bentayga and also a proud owner of an Apple Watch, then a brand new taste of convenience is about to come your way. The British premium automaker just released their brand new app for the Apple wearable tech in which it allows for Bentayga drivers to control certain in-car systems right from their wrist. Tapping on the Bentley app on the Watch will remotely control the car’s entertainment and climate systems. It can also adjust the heating and ventilation of the sears as well as monitor real-time information which include the vehicle’s speed, outside temperature, and the distance traveled. Perhaps the neatest feature to be included with the app is that it can be used to turn on the car’s seat massagers.

This particular Apple Watch application also allows passengers of the Bentayga to adjust the seats, temperature, and music with the use of the car’s Bluetooth connectivity. Watch owners will be able to sync with their Apple wearable device with that of the car’s Touch Screen Remote system.
The Bentley Bentayga, which is currently (at the time of writing) priced at approximately $230,000, contains high-tech features such as a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot. It also has a 1,950-watt amplifier to assist in giving more life to your music, a multitude of USB ports, a built-in navigation system, an 8-inch touch capacitive display interface, tablets found on the rear of the headrest, as well as assistance systems for off-roading, driving long distances, and urban driving.
Dan Whittaker, the Director of Electrical and Electronics over at Bentley, said the following in a statement: “The Bentayga is technologically advanced and combines this with luxury in a way only Bentley can achieve. This new Apple Watch connectivity is another example of how we are constantly innovating in order to enhance the customer experience.”
The new Apple Watch app can now be downloaded from the App Store, and of course, it does require you to have a Bentley Bentayga to make full use of it. However, Bentley is not only the car brand that has embraced the prowess that is wearable tech devices. There is also Ford, who also has a smartwatch app, in which the automaker’s wearable tech application will allow drivers to find and unlock their cars just by tapping simple commands on their wrist. Aside from Ford, Tesla vehicles can also “summon” their electric cars by using a wearable device.
