However, that bit of robotic helmsmanship wasn't the only trick the German company had up its sleeve. Or, more to the point, on its wrist.<br /><br />Taking a page from rival <a href="http://autoblog.com/mercedes-benz/">Mercedes-Benz</a>, BMW demonstrated how a "smartwatch," in this case the <a href="http://green.autoblog.com/tag/samsung/">Samsung</a> Galaxy Gear, could be made to function usefully with a vehicle, in this case the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/bmw/i3/">BMW i3</a>. Calling it a "research application," BMW showed off its BMW i Remote App on the Galaxy Gear; the app gives information about state of battery charge, available range and whether or not all the doors and windows are closed or open. Perhaps more useful still, the watch can be used to send a destination to the i3's navigation unit, adjust the climate control in preparation for a trip and can recognize voice commands. Nifty stuff, if not world-shaking, that could help tech-obsessed luxury buyers take a second look at the upcoming BMW EV.<br /><br />Take a closer look at the watch in action <a href="/2014/01/12/bmw-samsung-galaxy-gear-smartwatch-ces-2014/#continued">below</a>, or read thru the BMW press release.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/01/12/bmw-samsung-galaxy-gear-smartwatch-ces-2014/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>BMW and Samsung team up with Galaxy Gear smartwatch that talks to your i3</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/01/12/bmw-samsung-galaxy-gear-smartwatch-ces-2014/">BMW and Samsung team up with Galaxy Gear smartwatch that talks to your i3</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Sun, 12 Jan 2014 13:58:00 EST.
