Botvac Connected robotic vacuum cleaner can now be controlled with smartwatch
Of all the things you can do with your Apple Watch or Android Wear smartwatch, add one more to the list. The wearable can control a vacuum cleaner too. Yes, the Neato Botvac Connected Wi-Fi enabled robotic vacuum cleaner released last fall has got an app update which allows it to be controlled with your Apple Watch or any smartwatch running Android Wear OS. Of course the robotic vacuum cleaner can already be controlled with your Android or iOS devices.
Neato Botvac Connected will clean your home automatically and send real-time updates on your smartwatch. It will respond to commands from your wrist which is great as you won’t have to take out your smartphone. The vacuum cleaner and the connected smartwatch will have to be on the same Wi-Fi network for it to work which is not much of a hassle.
The robotic vacuum cleaner has the same price tag as earlier at $699 USD and hopefully other updates in the future will ensure more compatible features with smartwatch or smartphone. That said you have many other option too when it comes to buying a user-friendly vacuum cleaner robot for your home.
