Watch app for Tesla

Convenience on the wrist - Watch app for Tesla is the ideal companion in day to day life with your Tesla vehicle. These are just a few of the day to day conveniences this app will help achieve:

- Forgot to plug in? Get a notification if vehicle is in a pre-configured location and not plugged in - all done directly on the watch, no external servers required, keeping your privacy!

- Add the graphic corner complication to your watch face and enjoy the convenience of having easy access to state of charge, charging indicator, time remaining if charging, sentry mode active indicator and indicator if any windows, doors or trunks are open. All from one complication, that also will launch the app when tapped.

- During and after charge, a panel will show how much energy was added. Convenient if you schedule your charge during the night - wake up each morning and easily check how much energy was added to the battery.

- If you have multiple vehicles on your account, tap the vehicle name to quickly and easily switch between them.

- You can queue up commands by tapping on buttons, then put your wrist down and the commands will execute in the background when the vehicle is successfully woken up.

- When you tap the unlock vehicle button, the charge port will also unlock if a charging cable is attached. That's convenience right there!

- Want to reduce phantom drain? Background updates can be configured to longer intervals between updates or to only update if car is already awake or can be disabled entirely for absolutely zero impact on phantom drain.

- A warning panel will show up if any doors, windows or trunks are left open. Conveniently, you can tap the panel to close any open windows.

- Need to access the frunk? Just do it from your wrist - no fiddling with your phone.

- Sitting comfy in the couch, but just remembered you have a road-trip in the morning? Set the charge limit to 100% - or any value really - and start charging, right from the convenience of your wrist!

- Leaving the office after a long hot day? Activate the HVAC when you're on your way, and enjoy a nice cool vehicle.

- When charging, tap the time remaining label to switch to show time of expected completion - no more head calculus!

- Need to run a quick errand, but you don't have your phone? Unlock your vehicle from your wrist, then activate remote start and off you go. Just please be mindful that this feature requires internet connectivity on both watch and vehicle - so don't drive into the desert and leave your vehicle, or you'll get stuck there!

A note about security and privacy:
This app accepts two types of login. Either Tesla account credentials or a Tesla API token. Your account credentials are by default not stored in the app, but are used only once to obtain an authentication token and refresh token directly from the Tesla API server. If you would rather supply that token yourself, you can do so instead. It is preferable to supply a refresh token, as the app will then have a perpetual login. Your token will be persisted in the app. Tokens will be revoked if you change your Tesla account password. With the optional remote start feature you can choose to store your password in the app - it will be securely stored in the iOS / watchOS / iPadOS keychain. This feature is optional and is not required for all other features to function. No network traffic will ever be emitted from this app that goes anywhere other than directly to the Tesla API servers. The source code for this application will at all times be made available to any security researcher for a voluntary security and safety audit.

This app is not endorsed by Tesla Inc. Use at your own risk. No guarantee of proper function is given. Only you are responsible for any changes to your car caused by using this app.

What's new in version 1.1.7
New features
- Added Send Navigation Destination Shortcuts action.
- Added split view on iPads and plus/max iPhones in landscape.
- Added new Siri Shortcuts: Remote Start, Honk, Flash, Vent Sunroof, Close Sunroof, Enable Steering Wheel Heater, Disable Steering Wheel Heater

- A HUGE shoutout and THANK YOU to all my translators! You guys ROCK! - and as always, if you want the app translated to your language, get in touch! All localizations are public in the support github repository.
- When iOS updates in background or when vehicle commands are executed on iOS, watchOS will try to update complications to reflect that state. Obvious use case - unlock vehicle with app on phone, and watch face should quickly reflect unlocked state on cmoplications.
- Phone and Watch will now more reliably share vehicle data. So if one device gets new data, if possible, that data will be quickly reflected on the other device.

- Added accessibility labels to main control buttons.
- Siri action Wake now has a timeout of only 5 seconds, as 3rd party shortcuts actions can only execute for 10 seconds on iOS 14. To ensure reliability of shortcuts, put the Wake action in a loop for at least 4 times before any other actions.
- Button views housekeeping - a few actions that were only labels on iOS, are now rendered as buttons.
- Experimental alternate state complication for graphic rectangular
- Some graphic complications now show alternate background if feature is active
- Improved image caching.

- Service mode now treated like no network connection
- Driving state view in full screen landscape now hides navigation bar

- Introduced machine translation for missing localization keys. Please report poor translations as bugs!
- Vehicles in service mode will now be treated as online. Please send feedback if this introduces crashes!
- Removed transfer login button - this process should be entirely automatic.

- No longer throw fatalError when retries reaches max - should fix some crashes at launch.
- Fixed issue with large rectangular complication showing red app icon instead
- WatchOS background updates will now wait max 12 seconds to wake car, as limited by watchOS
