tesla watch

Developer Allan Wong posted an interesting video on YouTube today, showcasing his new Apple Watch app Remote S. In the clip, he can be seen using the wearable to control his Tesla Model S, performing tasks such as opening the charging port and adjusting the temperature.

While Tesla’s are pricey and not very common in most circles, the video is extremely impressive and worth watching. This is by far the most in-depth app we’ve seen demonstrated on the Watch, as Wong is able to use it to control nearly every function and feature of his vehicle.

Wong spent 3-4 days coding Remote S non-stop after receiving his [developer expedited] Apple Watch in the mail. It isn’t available yet, but it was very close to finished when the video was taken, so the final app should look very similar. He says he’ll let us know when it hits the App Store.

    He’s got a great story & a book 🙂

    • Melvco

      Yeah read through his Reddit AmA and some of his other posts, very interesting guy!

  • Ali G

    He has an Aventador and a Tesla <3

  • Michael Sweeney

    This is pretty cool, but where could this possibly lead? What avenues are opened up because there’s a source of control from the apple watch?
    Real question.

  • singhay559

    Wow the possibilities

  • Ree

    WTH? hahaha. I just realised I randomly watched one of this guy’s vids, when I was bored, just yesterday about him picking some kid up from school.

  • Noohar

    This car & his story is too cool. His a very talented developer.Love his Azure Blue Lamborghini Aventador!

    • Jox

      What’s his story? Is this the guy that made 1 million from an app?

  • WiseBlasian

    It’s cool and all but this shows why the Apple watch is just about the cool factor and doesn’t really have a lot of practical applications. It takes him like 5 full second just to unlock the doors where as on my car I have the key in my pocket and touch the inside of the handle and it unlocks automatically.

      Wouldn’t this be the apposite? He’s showing real world usage with a watch in its infancy, Android Wear been around for years and yet it has basically no developing community. All smartwatch makers are happy Apple joined the game because it will highlight why people may need or needs a smart watch.

      • WiseBlasian

        Did you even read my post? Do you drive a modern car? I would hate to get into an app every time just to unlock my car. Takes too long. And what is the point of showing the speed on your watch when you have the exact same info on your instruments cluster. Having to look at your watch takes longer and is not practical. I don’t see the point of watches of either android or apple. But yeah go ahead Apple fanboys and keep giving your money to apple.

      • Rowan09

        I read your post, but you are looking at the short term. Neither of us knows what the future holds for the Apple Watch and smart watches in general, but in your post you were implying you know. This is a cool app and it’s showing the possibilities of the Apple Watch. This app would not be a stand alone, it’s a step in the right direction.

        Actually Android Wear has only existed since 2013 which isn’t that long for a platform to exist. Please if you are going to bash something get your facts right first. Hate people like you

      • Rowan09

        I’m Watch in 2012 was the first Android Wear watch, we are now in 2015 and Android Wear watches are still in beta (barely any developer backing) form. I’m not bashing anything it’s the truth prove me otherwise? Now I’m not saying the Apple Watch is going to be a success (meaning long term), but there’s already a developer community and its growing in less than a month.

  • moofer

    When that hits the App Store, it’s mine.

  • drewjbx

    umm.. neat i guess, not very practical… be quicker just to do all things normally. iWatch needs facetime!

  • Matt

    Meh, don’t really see the need for it. It’s cool nonetheless, but my car door unlocks automatically when I get close enough to the door so I don’t even have to even push anything.

  • Croak

    Great. Now i need an Apple Watch AND a Tesla…. Thanks.

  • Favna

    One of the things he definitely still has to try and improve is reducing delay between pressing command and action happening. The delay between the honk and flashlight was waaay too long for an actual non-showcase situation.

  • Tim

    My future Apple Watch just became a whole lot more expensive…
