Where form meets function

In anticipation of the 2014 International CES, Mercedes-Benz has announced its new partnership with Pebble Technology. At its CES booth, Mercedes-Benz will demonstrate how an intelligently networked vehicle becomes a part of the “internet of things.” For this proof of concept, the developers at Mercedes have reinvented the Digital DriveStyle app in order to allow it to communicate with Pebble smart watches. Mercedes-Benz drivers are able to review important vehicle information like fuel level, door-lock status and vehicle location using their Pebble smart watch, even when they are outside the vehicle. Additionally, the Pebble smart watch can customize the three watch buttons to cater to the wearer’s favorite Digital DriveStyle features like reporting hazards, auto-routing, Siri activation, remote-controlling media or quickly showing nearby traffic conditions.
