* The scheduling is done by the watch itself. Meaning the app needs to connect successfully to the car when the scheduled time is due. The car API does not support this natively so this feature can not be guaranteed to work at all times. Be sure to have enough battery on your watch and make sure it can connect to internet. In some cases the app is not able to wake the car from its deep sleep cycle and will not be able to activate climate or charging.

** On Approach needs to be selected every time you use a command and will scan for the car for about 10 minutes. Currently detects cars with built-in Bluetooth LE connection (Phone-as-key - Model 3). Keep in mind that the watch still needs internet access either through LTE or your mobile phone for this feature to function.

This app is not affiliated with Tesla, Inc.

The car manufacturer can at any point render this app useless by alter, stopping access to, or by any other means restrict access to the API used by this app. No refund will be given. Keep your official phone app available at all times.

No user credentials are stored in this app or otherwise shared with any 3rd party or the developer. The password is only used for a single sign-on and then wiped from the app memory. The returned access tokens from Tesla and the user name are securely stored locally on your watch in the encrypted key manager provided by the OS. 
It is advisable to protect your app or watch with PIN-code access in case your watch gets stolen as this app will give access to vital vehicle operations.

Please read and accept the disclaimer on the watch before logging in for the first time.

It is a hard way to get the sign in info on the watch,needs a phone app for sign in
Installed on GWA2 running latest firmware. Every login attempt rejected within 2-3 seconds saying authentication failed. Triple checked both username and pw are correct. Not a data entry issue, app just simply won't authenticate. $10 wasted it seems.

Hi. Tesla sometimes lock out connections from 3rd party apps if credentials are wrong in the first attempt. The trick is to change your password at to renew all tokens. Before you try again also restart the watch to be on the safe side. It is a pain to enter the credentials on such a tiny watch but there's really no other way to do this.
Can't add email and password. Need refund now. I have the right ones, but fails. Pain in but to add these, takes for ever and then fails. Refund now

Hi. Tesla has probably locked out your account. You can fix this by logging on to and change your password. This will renew all tokens and allow you to log in from this app. It is also advisable to restart your watch before trying to log in again. You can apply for a refund using the Q/A link on your receipt. This is handled by Galaxy Store. But their refund policy is very strict. PM me from my FB site (KlokkProjects) if they refuse. We will find an agreement. Regards Runar
I don't even have my Tesla yet and find this app awesome! Can't wait

Thx. If you want to play around with the app before your long awaited car comes you can enter demo mode by logging in with user Demo and password Demo. Static data from a strange European configured vehicle will be shown, but you can get familiar with the app. Just log out from the app settings menu when your own account is ready. Regards Runar
I love the app it is easy to use and the team is always ontop of it Issues just some ideas team I love you guys some some helpful feedback #1 login in was hard but if you type first it is easier #2:you guys should add a widget #3 Add Battery of the watch Next To the Time #4 also you should move the favorites page to the end should not be its own separate menu reason I hate having to close out the app to get back to the main page
Seller 2020.03.13
Thx for the suggestions. 1 The app is international with a ton of different emails. 2 Widget is on the way. Beta in the next version. 3 Done in next version. 4 Just swipe up to get to the favorite menu. Swipe up again to close it. No need to use the physical button if that's what you meant. Regards Runar
Samsung input difficult but after login everything works perfectly. 2020 M3 connects with no problems. Set double-press to Drive. Great!
Login was painful, but has worked great since! Reset password on and restarted watch multiple times. All in all a good product.
Such a great interface and implantation! I use this watch app every day with my Model 3 Stealth. No issues. I referred a bunch of people to your app but Reddit. Everything else is really happy that I posted it because many people didn't know it existed. Keep up the good work, looking forward to more updates in the future! Best app in the Galaxy store by far!

I'm blushing... :)
One of the best Galaxy watch apps available
I was looking for an app specific for my Gear. Glad I stumbled onto this page. Works as it should, took me all of 10 minutes to play with the app and be accustomed to the layout. Works smoothly, happy customer. Worth the $10. Thanks!
