BMW and Porsche have unveiled their new apps for the Apple Watch.

First up, the BMW i Remote app allows users to easily check the status of their i3 or i8 as the app has a "glance screen" that displays critical information such as the battery's charge level, available range and door lock status.  

The app also provides alerts when the battery is fully recharged and allows users to access the car's climate control system.  Owners can also use the app to get navigation directions back to their car.

Likewise, the Porsche Car Connect app allows users to remotely lock the vehicle and check whether windows, doors and sunroof are closed. The app can also provide directions back to the car and activate its horn and lights so the owner can easily find it in a crowded parking lot.

Plug-in hybrid owners can also use the app to activate the climate control system and check the status of their car including the current range and remaining charging time.
