Cadillac has added support for the Apple Watch to their myCadillac iOS application. With the new watch integration, owners will be able to use services such as vehicle location (US and Mexico only), remote start, lock/unlock doors, activate/deactivate horn and lights, and walking directions to their vehicle all from their wrist.
myCadillac usage has grown 50% in 2017 alone, which makes the timing of adding additional features for Watch users additionally helpful.
Apple Watch access to these features allows owners to access these features without being required to take a phone out of a pocket or purse. This should be more convenient, especially for owners of the more recent/faster watches (Series 2 and Series 3 specifically).
Apple Watch compatibility requires WatchOS version 3 or newer.
