Sorry, kids. Life just got a little tougher for you (and perhaps a bit safer for the rest of us). Some of Volkswagen’s standard “smart” features have been optimized for the Apple Watch. Specifically, the Car-Net system and its corresponding app.
The aforementioned “smart” features have been built into VW models since the 2014 year. With Car-Net’s Apple Watch rollout, the handy, parent-approved app will now alert the user when a driver in the family hits a certain speed or leaves a particular location boundary. Notifications will go to any Apple Watch paired with the iPhone, thereby doubling your chances of getting busted.
Other features of the Car-Net system that will be available on the Apple Watch app include temperature, location, and car battery information. VW has not confirmed when the app will be available for download.
