Husqvarna launches first Apple Watch app for robotic mowers

Husqvarna recently launched Automower Connect, a robotic mower app available for Apple Watch. With the touch of a finger, Automower Connect enables users to mow their lawn from their wrist via Apple Watch, regardless if they are at work or on vacation on the other side of the world.

“Twenty-one years ago, Husqvarna set the first robotic mower on the market, and we have been pushing the technological frontier ever since,” said Olle Markusson, robotic category manager at Husqvarna. “With Automower Connect for Apple Watch, Husqvarna takes the user experience to yet another level and strengthens its innovation lead in the growing robotic mower market.”

The Automower Connect app is available for the Husqvarna Automower 320, 330X and 450X. The one-touch display allows functionality in the following key areas:

  • Control – Monitor the current status of the robotic mower, and send it “Start,” “Stop” and “Park” commands.
  • Configure – Read and modify the menu of the robotic mower settings.
  • Security – Receive alarm notifications and track the position of the robotic mower in the event of theft.

The application is free to download, and it is available in the App Store under the utilities category.
