Mercedes-Benz teams up with Pebble Technology for smart watch tech

Most automakers have put lot of effort into developing smart infotainment systems and are slowly stepping into new technologies like alternatives to Google Glass and their own smart watches.

Mercedes-Benz has now teamed up with Silicon Valley based Pebble Technology to develop the Digital DriveStyle app, which will be unveiled at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The smart watch will act as a “second screen” for your smartphone, unlocking some interesting features for the connected car. From the smart watch, the driver can review information like fuel level, door-lock status, and vehicle location.

Once inside the car, the Pebble smart watch app alerts its driver to real-time hazards through V2V technology like accidents, road construction, or stalled vehicles by vibrating the watch.

Users can also customize the three watch buttons to activate their favourite Digital DriveStyle features like reporting hazards, auto-routing, Siri activation, remote-controlling media, or nearby traffic conditions.
