Mercedes-Benz to show Pebble smartwatch integration at CES

Smartwatch will allow drivers to review, fuel level, door-lock status and vehicle location

Mercedes-Benz will demonstrate how its DriveStyle app can communicate with Pebble’s smartwatch at the Consumer Electronics show next week.

The new partnership with Pebble Technology allows Mercedes-Benz to pave the way for the future of in vehicle integrated applications.

Mercedes-Benz will demonstrate at its CES booth the benefits that it holds for drivers.

Important and useful information such as reviewing fuel level, door-lock status, and vehicle location can be monitored via the Pebble smart watch, even if when you’re outside the vehicle.

In-car use will transform the Pebble smartwatch app to provide vibrating alerts to real-time hazards through V2V technology like accidents, road works and even stalled vehicles.

Drivers can customise their Pebble smartwatch so its three buttons activate their favourite Digital DriveStyle features like reporting hazards, auto-routing, Siri activation, remote-controlling media, or quickly showing nearby traffic conditions.

The new collaboration with the Silicon Valley company signifies Mercedes’ shift into the world of consumer electronics with intention to further integrate more innovative tech into its vehicles.
