Luxury car brand Bentley's recently launched a new smartwatch app that offers intuitive vehicle control features. Available for Apple watches, the platform enables 'Bentley Bentayga' passengers to adjust their seats and their vehicle's temperature while monitoring vehicle speed and distance. The app could also be useful for drivers since it is designed to discourage dangerous, distracted driving.

The app is Bluetooth-connected and the brand claims it functions when "Apple Watch wearers simply synchronize with the vehicle’s Touch Screen Remote (TSR) system in order to interact with the car from the convenience of their wrist."

Dan Whittaker of Bentley explains that the new addition will work to increase consumers' positive experience, something which the brand is always looking to improve and develop.
