Control your Tesla Model S From your Android Wear Smartwatch with Tesla Command

July 25, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

The Tesla Model S is a pretty popular car among the tech community. So it’s no surprised that this made us drool a bit. But the folks at Bnotion have put together an Android Wear app that will allow you to control your Tesla Model S straight from your wrist. You can do various commands like unlocking or locking the doors, honking the horn and opening the sun roof. Now many of you might think this wouldn’t be too handy. But imagine you forgot to close the sun roof on your Tesla Model S and it’s about to rain? Just open the app on your Samsung Gear Live or LG G Watch and close the sunroof. Don’t even need to go outside to your car. It’s pretty neat. Although I think it’ll be more for bragging rights than anything. Now if only you could use your smartwatch to start the car. That would definitely come in handy in the winter when it gets really cold.

There’s already a Glass app for the Tesla Model S that does much of the same functionality. It was named the GlassTesla app. So for those that have Glass and a Tesla Model S, they can do all kinds of things straight from Glass. But now they can do it straight from their wrist which is pretty exciting. Now these are the type of apps I’d love to see on Android Wear, and hopefully we see plenty more of them pretty soon. I’d love to see some of the other car manufacturers do stuff like this for their cars with Android Wear. It’d definitely make the Samsung Gear Live or LG G Watch more practical and a few more use cases as well. How many of you own a Tesla Model S? What do you think of the car? Is it the best car you’ve ever owned? Let us know in the comments below.
