Mercedes has added integration for the Pebble smartwatch that allows the Pebble to show fuel level, vehicle location, and whether the car’s doors are locked when the driver is away from the vehicle. The Pebble will also vibrate to notify drivers if there’s an accident or road construction up ahead, rather than relying on the navigation screen.
While we’re still waiting for the day when we can finally ditch our car keys, Mercedes-Benz is inching closer to incorporating wearable tech into its cars. And the latest integration comes in the form of the Pebble smartwatch. Just like the text, email, and phone call notifications the Pebble currently receives from Android and iOS devices, Mercedes has developed its own series of alerts and features that flow through the Digital DriveStyle app on the driver’s smartphone.
