Good iPhone App - But not for Watch

Let me start by saying that I’m impressed with the layout and features of the app on the phone. However, I specifically got it (and subscribed) to use it on the watch. Unfortunately it just crashes whenever I try to open it. I completely reset the watch and it worked for a few minutes, but then went back to crashing. I hope it gets fixed, because I like the complications feature, if it would work!

A handy way to control my Tesla!

I got this app primarily because it includes an Apple Watch app that has exactly the features I’ve been waiting for. The watch faces show me the charge level and drives me range, and even allow me to operate the AC. The ac control is going to come in handy because summer is here and it’s great being able to cool the car off before getting in. I’m going to get a lot of use out of that feature, so having that control on my watch is perfect!

Its cool that the iPhone app shows charging stations near me. I often charge up at work, but this is a necessity when I’m on the road traveling for business.

This is a wonderful app that completes the “Tesla experience”!

Best app for Apple Watch

This app knocks it out of the park when it comes to the available Watch complications. Not only does it have every format available for the various Watch complications, it also allows you to SELECT what each format should display (battery level, lock status, etc). When it comes to the car controls it is a little vanilla looking but has all the functions you need. Also includes all Supercharger locations which is a very good extra feature. So far my favorite app for my Model S.
