Porsche Car Connect for Apple Watch: Notifications about new messages of the PCC app
Stuttgart. Porsche is one of the first car makers in the world to offer the opportunity to connect its vehicles with the Apple Watch.
As a result, drivers can now access Porsche Car Connect functions even more conveniently, without having to reach for their iPhones.
However, the Apple smartphone still continues to manage communication with the vehicle and integrates the Apple Watch as an additional display and control element.
Porsche Car Connect for Apple Watch: Overview of basic informations about the car
The Apple Watch provides information on the vehicle status and allows certain vehicle functions to be monitored and controlled by tap and gesture input.
The “remote” display, for instance, visualises whether windows, doors, boot lid and sunroof are closed; the vehicle can also be locked if necessary by pressure of the finger (“Force Touch” function).

As soon as drivers are in the vicinity of their Porsche, they can easily identify it on a full parking lot or in a multi-storey car park with the functions to sound the horn and flash the lights.
