AAA has released a new app for Apple Watch. This recent update allows Apple Watch owners to find the nearest gas station the station with the lowest price for the type of fuel they use in their vehicle. The app also provides the most accurate gas prices by updating prices across the U.S. and Canada seven times a day.
“AAA’s new Apple Watch functionality puts consumers in charge of their time and helps them make decisions on how much money they spend on gas, whether it’s in their daily commute, or traveling for leisure or business,” said AAA president and CEO Marshall Doney. “Updating our app to integrate with the newest platforms shows AAA’s commitment to lead in the consumer technology space and provide value for our members and the traveling public.”
The AAA Gas Price functionality for Apple Watch searches gas station pricing within a multi-mile radius of the user. It then shows the options the user selected – fastest or cheapest. The closest gas station is determined by reviewing detailed turn-by-turn directions of the eight closest stations and layering traffic information to compute drive times. Navigation to the stations is routed through Apple Maps. Users can also configure the app to select the price for the type of fuel they use.
Consumers should be sure to program the watch before driving, then follow Apple Watch’s turn-by-turn voice commands or designate a passenger to help navigate to a destination.
