The Samsung Galaxy Gear has undergone a number of developments since it was first introduced, but there are still a number of developments to come. One of those is its ability to control your car.

Samsung has partnered with BMW to show off their new technology in the new BMW i3 electric car. The new technology is being displayed at CES 2014.

The device essentially connects to your car via the “i Remote” app, and is then able to display information about the car, as well as control certain aspects of it. You certainly won’t be able to drive from your watch, but there are definitely some cool features involved! Hit the break to read more and check out the press release!

Through the app you will be able to see things like battery level, status of doors, windows and sunroof, and you will be able to see whether your car needs an inspection or not. The app can also control the interior temperature of the car.

For now the i Remote app is just a proof of concept so even if you have both the Galaxy Gear and a BMW i3 you won’t be able to use it. This or something similar will almost certainly be available to consumers one day though!
