Bentley has announced a brand new app that lets owners control their ultra-luxury sports utility vehicle from the comfort of their wrist.
The Bentley Bentayga Apple Watch offers the ability to adjust the on-board climate, adjust the heating, enable the ventilation and massage function of the leather-clad seats and check the outside temperature without being in the vehicle.
Not only that, the Bentayga app can be used to check the vehicle speed, distance travelled and other real-time information, thanks to what the British luxury brand describes as a ‘bespoke Bentley digital architecture’.
Director of Electrical and Electronics at Bentley, Dan Whittaker, said: “The Bentayga is technologically advanced and combines this with luxury in a way only Bentley can achieve.”
He added: “This new Apple Watch connectivity is another example of how we are constantly innovating in order to enhance the customer experience.”
The app works over Bluetooth once synchronised using the Touch Screen Remote system in-built in the car and can be downloaded now from the App Store right now.
The Bentley Bentayga is powered by an all-new 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged W12 powertrain that offers 600bhp and 663lb/ft (900Nm) of torque. 0-60mph takes 4.1 seconds and the top speed is 187mph, making it the world’s most powerful and fastest production SUV.
The Apple Watch is the Californian tech giant’s foray into the smartwatch market.
