Stay cool with Jaguar’s new Android app

Jaguar is broadening its horizons with the introduction of a remote functions app that’s compatible with the Android Wear watch. By expanding its wearable technology solutions, the brand is able to provide a whole host of connected features for customers.

These features include the ability to remotely start your Jaguar’s engine and activate climate control, so you’ll enter the cabin at the temperature you’ve set, plus you can check your Jaguar’s fuel level, monitor its location and remotely lock and unlock the doors to the vehicle - even when it’s not in close proximity.

Head of Digital and Connected Car in Product Marketing at Jaguar Land Rover, Leon Hurst, said: ‘This expansion of connectivity brings all the functionality of our Apple Watch app to Android devices and underlines Jaguar Land Rover’s dedication to its Connected Car Vision.’

As part of the brand’s Digital and Connected Car Technologies demonstration at the Wearable Technology Show 2016, the Android Wear watch app was revealed and its abilities showcased using the all-new F-PACE. The new Jaguar performance crossover supports both Android and Apple technology, plus it’s the first car to feature the pioneering Activity Key – this durable, waterproof wristband is perfect for taking on outdoor excursions and expeditions, letting you deactivate the standard key and leave it locked securely in your Jaguar.

A 10.2-inch touchscreen embedded in the Jaguar’s dashboard provides the platform for smartphone integration, through the marque’s innovative InControl Touch Pro infotainment system. Ultra-fast Ethernet and Wi-Fi hotspot capability keep you constantly connected, providing your Jaguar with live weather reports, flight tracking and intelligent navigation.

If you already have a Jaguar with InControl Remote or InControl Protect, the Android Wear watch app will be available to you, plus it will be available on all future Jaguar models.
