The new watch runs the Mercedes’ Digital DriveStyle app and serves as a simultaneous transmitter and receiver of data, so if you’re outside, it will allow you to check basic vehicle information such as fuel level, door-lock status, vehicle location and other information. Also, when you’re in the car, the smartwatch is also able to alert you to potential hazards such as road traffic accidents, road construction and stalled vehicles via vehicle to vehicle (V2V) communication. You can also customize Digital DriveStyle features such as hazard reporting, auto-routing, Siri activation, media remote control or traffic conditions.

The prototype of this new technological device will be shown at the upcoming 2014 International CES in Las Vegas, the largest consumer electronics show in the world.
