How about controlling your Tesla with your Apple Watch?

By ,

A new app for the Apple Watch, set to be released in April, has just been introduced by Eleks to allow Tesla Model S owners to control their car using the pricey device attached to their wrist.

Want to know the battery level, range, or temperature of your Tesla in real time? Thanks to Eleks' Apple Watch app, it's all possible. You can also lock and unlock the doors, turn on the headlights, open the panoramic sunroof, and control the air conditioning system remotely. Convenient, isn't it? 

However, Eleks specifies that, due to a number of faults within WatchKit, there is no access to the gyroscope, accelerometer, microphone, Bluetooth, and Apple's haptic notification system. I guess we can't always have it all...

Meanwhile, Todoist has unveiled its own app in the form of a to-do list. Called “TechCrunch,” it helps users schedule and view daily tasks, add labels, reply to comments, and more. 

With the Apple Watch coming to market soon, expect many other apps to follow.
