As technology rapidly develops across every business sector, especially the auto manufacturing industry, companies are searching for fresh, talented innovators to join the movement. Ford has taken this forward-thinking method to the next level with its contribution to Techstars Mobility, driven by Detroit.

With all the modern technology Ford offers across its lineup, it’s no wonder that the automaker is an early adopter in other tech trends, too. Thanks to a new update to the MyFord Mobile app, those who drive Ford battery electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles can stay in tune with their vehicle just by checking their smartwatch. The new MyFord Mobile app update, available in the Apple App Store and Google Play, allows users to seamlessly sync their smartwatches with their vehicles to keep track of important information.
The app works seamlessly on any type of smartwatch display, from a more rounded face to a square screen. With it, drivers can easily check the range and charge status for their Ford C-MAX Energi, Ford Focus Electric or Ford Fusion Energi. They’ll also be able to lock or unlock their car from anywhere, get walking directions back to the parked car, see a summary of their last trip and keep track of the vehicle’s mileage.
“The app gives drivers the ability to quickly check important data like available range before leaving on a journey – without having to access the mobile application on their smartphone,” said David Hatton, Ford manager of Connected Vehicles and Services, in a release. “The app can also notify users when their car is fully charged, helping a driver be courteous to other electric vehicle owners so they can free up the charging spot or avoid fees applied at some charging stations when you overrun your time after the charge is complete.”
