Apple Watch/Xs Max

I bought the app, hoping to use my Apple Watch to unlock my Model S. The app installed on the watch, but I am still waiting at the watch is still “Getting App data...”. It has bee more than 10 minutes and the watch app still has not completed getting app data. I have the Series 3 watch (Version 4.3.2 (15U70)), XS Max iPhone (Version 12).


Developer contacted me, I rebooted my watch, and the app works as advertised! Thanks.

Version 2.0

I have really liked this app, for what it is supposed to provide, however this update does not list the vehicles associated with the Tesla account upon logging in, it does show the page that used to show associated vehicles.

Please send your email address, as I cannot access it within the app or anywhere online.

Developer listens to feedback!

I had downloaded this app, but was unable to use it cause I have the Apple Watch series 0. Wrote the developer an email and a couple of weeks later the app now supports the original Apple Watch. Work great!!
