5 car apps that are compatible with your Apple Watch
Did you know you can start your BMW and set the interior temperature from afar with your Apple Watch? Yep, and there is a growing number of car makers that are either adapting their car applications for the realities of the smallish Apple Watch screen, or outing brand new versions with wrist-friendly interface in mind.

From simply finding where you parked, to remotely locking, preheating or cooling or vehicle, the car apps compatible with your Apple-made timepiece are here to facilitate the interaction, plus, let's face it, it is much more comfortable to simply look at your wrist while driving and receiving a message, rather than fumble for your phone, or look at the infotainment system in the central console. 

Check out which brands are out with or prepping to launch Apple Watch-compatible car apps in the slideshow below.
