(Crewe, 4 May 2016) Bentley Bentayga passengers now have the luxury of controlling a selection of in-car systems from their Apple Watch, thanks to a new app developed by the British luxury brand.
The technology, which uses bespoke digital architecture, enables those being driven in the Bentayga to remotely control the on-board climate and entertainment systems; adjust the heating, ventilation and massage functions of their seats; and monitor real-time information, such as vehicle speed, distance travelled and outside temperature.
Using the Bentyaga’s Bluetooth connectivity, Apple Watch wearers simply synchronise with the vehicle’s Touch Screen Remote (TSR) system and then interact with the car from the convenience of their wrist.
Dan Whittaker, Director of Electrical and Electronics at Bentley, said: “The Bentayga is technologically advanced and combines this with luxury in a way only Bentley can achieve. This new Apple Watch connectivity is another example of how we are constantly innovating in order to enhance the customer experience.”
Bentayga TSR for Android
Bentayga Touch Screen Remote App for the Bentley Bentayga.
Bentayga is leading the way in technological advances at Bentley. Our aim is to let you feel the effects of powerful technology, not be overwhelmed by it. Each piece of technology has been seamlessly integrated into the vehicle to offer intelligent functionality. The subtle application of this extraordinary technology means you hardly notice it until you need it.
The intelligent functionality makes every journey more comfortable and satisfying, whether you’re in the driving seat or relaxing as a passenger.
Those seated in the back can now control this functionality. Bentayga has, for the rear seat, a handheld Touch Screen Remote (TSR). This highly interactive TSR gives you control of key features in the car, including:
– Climate control
– Vehicle information
– Rear seat heating, ventilation and massage (where fitted)
– Front passenger seat movement
