Fascinating idea from Toyota. A watch that acts as a key. RFID, probably.
Toyota is working on a new handy gadget to go with their line of Crown cars. They are working in conjunction with Citizen to develop a watch that transmits a radio signal to the car once the hand gets close enough. Basically, you grab the door handle and the door unlocks. They also plan on implementing manual buttons on the watch similar to how keyless entry units work now. Expect to see this hitting Japan first in the coming weeks.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
