HUSKVARNA, Sweden — Husqvarna recently launched the app Automower Connect, an app available for Apple Watch. Automower Connect enables consumers to mow their lawn from the wrist via Apple Watch, regardless of their location.

"Twenty-one years ago, Husqvarna set the first robotic mower on the market, and we have been pushing the technological frontier ever since. 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," says Olle Markusson, robotic category manager at Husqvarna.

The Automower Connect app is available for the Husqvarna Automower 320, 330X and 450X. The one-touch display allows functionality in these 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 available in App Store and is listed in the utilities category.  

About Husqvarna Automower 

The Husqvarna robotic lawnmower was introduced in 1995. It's powered by electricity and takes on steep 45% climbs, works in any weather condition, and powers along silently. The unique mowing technique is based on that the mower's small, sharp pivoting blades continuously cuts the grass several times in random patterns within defined boundaries. When it's time to recharge the battery, the mower returns to its charging station.
