It was BMW that had launched its official app for Samsung smartwatches. The BMW Connected was the best app on Gear S3 & Gear Sport to control the car. Later, due to unknown reasons, the company removed the app from the Galaxy Store. Now, from Gear S2 to the latest Galaxy Watch 4, many things have changed. At this time, Samsung had gained major shares in the wearable market and adopted the Wear OS platform. Today we can see all the major car companies have their official apps in the Play Store.
The famous companies Hyundai, Kia, Nissan, MG & Honda all have listed apps in the store. By using the apps on Galaxy Watch 4, it becomes easy to control the car remotely. With the app, you can lock, unlock, honk or flash the lights and check vehicle status. You can also track live location, share the location, find the car and send the destination route. The car controlling app will also guide you to store your documents, call emergency numbers, give roadside assistance, and more services. Let’s look at these best car controlling apps on Galaxy Watch 4.

The official app for Morris Garage offers plenty of useful features. It let you use your wristwatch to unlock the doors to switch off your AC. The companion app is available on the smartphone, and you can pair the app with the infotainment system in the car. It let you find the car, share location, check tire pressure, turn on/off AC, control side mirrors, lock or unlock doors, open or close the sunroof, and get important alerts.
