Volvo has developed software in collaboration with Microsoft, which allows drivers to control certain functions remotely, through the Microsoft Band 2 smartwatch.
The new tech, officially revealed at CES, allows the car owner to set the navigation and heating, lock the car's doors, flash the headlights and sound the horn via the smartwatch.
Commands are spoken to the smartwatch and the actions are carried out remotely via the ‘Volvo on Call’ app.
The smartwatch app is the second in a series of collaborative projects between Volvo and Microsoft, as the two brands team up to develop its next generation of automotive technological features.
The voice command technology will be available in the spring in markets where Volvo on Call is available, including the UK. The Microsoft Band 2 smartwatch retails at £199.99.
