Hyundai lets you start your car with your watch with Blue Link for Android Wear

Auto Tech
I'm Tim Stevens in Las Vegas for the International CES. And behind me is a 2015 Hyundai Sonata, the kind of the car that you can go to your dealership and buy today. That car comes with a service called Blue Link, which you can right now use on your Android smartphone or your iOS smartphone to do things like lock your car remotely, unlock it remotely, even start and stop your car. What Hyundai's announcing at the show this year is an extension that will allow you to do the same sort of things through your smart watch. Now I'm wearing a Samsung gear live here on my wrist and by launching the app that they are [UNKNOWN] here in CBS, you can do the same sorts of things so I can now, from my wrist, lock the car, unlock the car, start the car, flash the lights, and if I can't find my car, I can actually get directions [INAUDIBLE] So we're gonna go head and try to start the car from here. Now you have to enter in a four digit pin, and the request at this point goes from the watch to the phone, up to the Cloud, and then back down to the car again. So it does take a little bit of time. We're seeing delays of about 20 to 30 seconds here in Las Vegas. Things might be a little quicker when the network's are a little bit less stressed than they are here at the Consumer Electronics Show. So we'll wait for the result and see. [MUSIC] Fingers crossed. [NOISE] Here we go! I've just started my car from my wrist watch which is pretty cool Now the Android where support is going to be available hopefully some time hopefully in the first quarter of this year. Hyundai is also planning to add support for the Apple Smartwatch that's going to be coming out a little later this year once they get some hardware they can test on. Again, this is showing off the Hyundai Blue Link app running on an Android or smart watch at the international CES of 2015.
