Congratulations to BMW i for taking the top prize in the “Software and Mobile Apps” category for the BMW i Remote App for the Samsung Gear S at the CES Innovation Awards ceremony in New York City (ahead of the 2015 CES in Las Vegas).
The BMW i Remote App for the Samsung Gear S smartwatch seamlessly connects BMW i drivers to their vehicle via their wristwatch. Developed to allow direct access to important information in real time, the app displays all key information at a glance on the device’s home screen. For example, BMW i3 owners are able to see a real-time view of their battery level, the remaining range and a status overview whether all doors and windows are closed. In addition, they can pre-condition their BMW i and send addresses right from the Smartwatch to the navigation system.
Next on the table for BMW is the integration of BMW i apps with the upcoming Apple Watch.
