Volkswagen is embracing the Apple Watch

If you’re both an Apple Watch and Volkswagen owner then I have some good news for you: the automaker has announced that its Car-Net platform will be compatible with the Apple Watch. This enables users to access a wealth of information on their vehicle from anywhere in the world so long as they have an Apple Watch, and Volkswagen has made it clear that this is only the beginning. 

Volkswagen has another reason for Apple Watch owners to get revved up. Volkswagen has announced that its Car-Net platform will connect with the new Apple Watch, allowing owners access to vehicle information while away from their rides. Volkswagen’s Apple Watch app will be available worldwide on all vehicles with Volkswagen’s Car-Net systems. Hinting at how work on their Apple Watch connectivity will be mirrored in future automotive technology, Abdallah Shanti, Executive Vice President and Group Chief Information Officer for Region Americas said in a statement, “These high-tech features, available through the Car-Net app for Apple Watch, are paving the way to Volkswagen’s future of connected vehicles.” The Car-net app will bring a suite of automotive functionality to Apple’s latest gadget, including remote locking and unlocking of doors, checking on whether doors and windows are closet, and monitoring fuel or battery charge level.
