The Future Is Here As Jaguar Release Wearable Key
Soon To Be Available On The New F-PACE Crossover
Wearable technology is becoming increasingly popular with things like the Apple Watch, and Jaguar have jumped on the bandwagon too with a wearable key.
Who Is It Aimed At?
The Activity Key, as Jaguar are calling it, is aimed at those with a more active lifestyle, where carrying around a key could inconvenience their activities or potentially risk being lost, such as surfing, skiing, rock climbing, etc. This ties in with the target market for the F-PACE crossover.
How Does The Jaguar Wearable Key Work?
The Activity Key allows you to leave your keys in the car whilst you go surfing, skiing or anything else where having your traditional car key on you might be a burden to carry. You don’t have to worry about the band getting wet as it’s waterproof and the RFID sensor means it doesn’t need any power to run. Just simply leave your car keys in the glove box or out of sight of anyone looking in, and tap the wristband on the Jaguar logo on the car boot door and you’re good to go. The fob inside is now rendered useless, so if anyone did manage to break in, they wouldn’t be able to drive away.
How Much Will It Cost?
The optional extra will set you back a whopping £300, with the car itself starting from £34,170.
Wearable Tech And F-PACE
If you don’t want to splash out £300 and you already have an Apple Watch, then the Jaguar app pretty much allows you to do the same, but with the added bonuses of controlling the temperature in your car and sounding the horn.
