CAA Teams Up With Apple Watch

caaThe Apple Watch has sold over seven million units since its launch in April. As a result, more and more developers are making sure their apps are usable on the Watch. The Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) is now one of them. The association recently announced a version of its Service Tracker will be available for the Apple Watch.

Service Tracker is a feature CAA added to its Apple and Android smartphone app in Ontario last year. Using GPS, it allows members to track the location of their assigned service vehicle in real time. Configuring this feature for the Apple Watch will make it the first roadside assistance app available on the device.

“Our Service Tracker function on Apple Watch is the state-of-the-art version of roadside assistance,” said Jeff Walker, CAA chief strategy officer. “With the new Apple Watch functionality, members get the peace of mind they’ve always had with CAA, plus they get the latest technology, making their experience even more seamless.”

Service Tracker for Apple Watch will be released in Ontario in July of 2015. CAA also plans to release it in other markets later this year.
