That LG mystery watch we showed you earlier isn’t going to be the K Watch J 2. It used to be if truth be told evolved specifically for Audi and their new Prologue car. It will lift the Audi logo as smartly.
Earlier lately, Ulrich Hackenberg used the watch to summon the self-riding Prologue to the level right through Audi’s press convention. The watch used to be showed to be made by way of LG, so it used to be assumed that it may be the successor to the K Watch J or a brand new version.
Although it is the use of Android Wear and is indisputably an offshoot of the K Watch J, we gained’t see it extensively bought every time quickly. Apparently LG and Audi labored in combination to boost this watch to compare the layout of the Prologue but in addition incorporated additional hardware to keep up a correspondence with the automobile.
NFC is incorporated within the watch, which isn’t to be had on some other Android Wear watch. This NFC capacity establishes a safe connection among the automobile and the watch, which lets you release the doorways. Since NFC can paintings with out the battery, the driving force will have to nonetheless be capable of release or lock the doorways even if the watch battery is lifeless.
Then there are biometric sensors that would feed knowledge akin to the driving force’s frame temperature and center price to the automobile’s onboard pc. This may well be used to mechanically regulate the air con or warmth within the automotive.
There is additionally a UI pores and skin on most sensible of Android Wear that is specifically designed for Audi, which I thought Google wasn’t allowing. S bet as a result of this tool isn’t going to be extensively bought, it’s k. It additionally signifies that any antique Android Wear watch gained’t paintings with the Prologue, despite the fact that it have been to have NFC.
Slashgear used to be in a position to get a few video time with the watch, so test it out under.
Hopefully LG will be offering one thing that appears like this watch as an ordinary Android Wear software.
Be positive to take a look at our complete CES 2015 coverage.
