If you own an Amazfit GTR or Amazfit GTS, then a new feature rolling out to the two smartwatches will allow you to unlock your car with just your watch. Don’t get too excited as it is just not any car but a particular Chinese electric car.
According to a post by the official Huami Weibo account, the Amazfit GTS and Amazfit GTR will be able to unlock the Xiaopeng P7/Xpeng P7. This is an electric vehicle that is touted as the Chinese rival to the Tesla Model 3. A post by ITHome says the feature is now available via a new update rolling out to the two watches.
While being able to unlock your car with your watch is definitely a cool feature to have, this particular one is a niche one as the Xpeng P7 is just one out of the several different types of cars available. So being able to unlock just a particular type of car really narrows down the usefulness of the feature. We are also sure there are only a very very small number of persons that own both the car and either of these watches.
Nevertheless, we won’t rule out the possibility of a similar feature being available for other cars in the future especially those from more popular brands.
