Tired of digging through your pockets or purse for your phone so you can open an app to see where your car is parked? If that's the case and you also own an Apple Watch, Chevy has the answer: the Bowtie brand's myChevrolet app, which allows users to perform a number of remote functions from their smartphones, is now available as an app on the Apple Watch.

In addition to the vehicle location, the app also allows owners to lock and unlock the doors, use the remote start system (if the car is equipped with one), and flash the headlights and honk the horn. The app can even give owners walking directions to their vehicle, which will be a lifesaver if you can't remember where you parked in a busy city environment. That said, Chevrolet only offers the vehicle location feature with a paid OnStar subscription. Canadians are also out of luck.

While it's hard to get excited about remote locking/unlocking from a phone (and even from a smartwatch), the ability to get clear walking directions to your vehicle will be a big help to city dwellers.

The myChevrolet app for Apple Watch, which comes in English, Spanish, and French language versions, is now available in the US, Canada, and Mexico.
