Starting the engine of your car usually just involves inserting your car key into the ignition slot, turning it, and you’re good to go. If you have a more modern vehicle, your car key might not necessarily be a key but a card-like device or a dongle, and starting the car involves just pressing the “Start” button.

Well it looks like Hyundai is hoping to make things even more modern as the car manufacturer has recently announced the Blue Link app which has been brought over onto Android Wear device. What does this mean? This means that drivers will be able to remotely control certain aspects of their car’s functions from their wrists, one of which is the ability to start/stop the car’s engine.

The Blue Link Android Wear app will also allow drivers to lock/unlock their car and to activate safety features such as flashing the headlights or honking the horn. For those who forgot where they parked, the app will also be able to tell them the location of their vehicle, and will also be able to call roadside assistance.

The good news is that the app will work as long as it is paired with the smartphone’s Blue Link app, and because it also relies on a data connection, there is no range limit. The app is expected to make its debut at CES 2015 next week, so do check back with us then for the details.
