Android Watch App – Tesla Car

There’s been a lot of discussion about whether or not smart watches (and specifically Android Wear) are going to be useful rather than a quick fad. In the developer community, this discussion has focused a lot on how to create intuitive experiences and interactions on such a tiny screen.

I personally think that Google has done a great job with it’s example apps, but I haven’t really seen a huge number of 3rd party apps that have blown me away. If I’m going to shell out hundreds of bucks for a smart watch, I want it to be not only useful, I want it to be easy and not frustrating. It should improve my life in a noticeable way.

So I’m always on the lookout for interesting apps that can help push smart watches into that category. I ran across one today. It’s an app designed to help users manage a Tesla electric car, and it’s a brilliant use-case for a smart watch. All interactions seems easy and intuitive, so I thought I’d share it with you all.
