British luxury car maker Bentley has released an Apple Watch app that treats Bentayga SUV passengers to a bevy of car functions not seen before on a smartwatch.

The app uses "bespoke digital architecture" that synchronizes with the vehicle's Touch Screen Remote (TSR) system, enabling passengers to access in-car climate control and entertainment systems, including the ability to adjust the heating, ventilation, and massage functions of their seats.

Elsewhere, users can also monitor real-time car information from within the app, such as vehicle speed, distance travelled, and outside temperature. Meanwhile, media functions for hi-fi and digital TV include the ability to change volume, adjust playback controls, and switch media sources.

And if the driver seat is too reclined for passengers' liking, this can be adjusted from the app, too.

The Bentayga TSR app is a free download available on the App Store for iPhone and iPad. [Direct Link]

The Bentayga SUV starts at $229,100.

I'll have to get one of these for my chauffeur. Bentley bands would be a wonderful addition.

Who's going to mess around with an app on the watch when they can just pull the phone out of their pocket? ;)

Never mind that the real air conditioner switch is literally at their fingertips? :D
