New and improved Neato app lets users check the status of their vacuum as easily as checking the time

March 1, 2016—Newark, CA—Enhancements to the app that starts, stops and monitors Neato’s Wi-Fi enabled Botvac™ Connected robot vacuum now give users control right from Apple and Android smartwatches. Available today, the automatic upgrade brings new functionality to Neato’s smartest and most powerful robot vacuum.

“Smartwatches are letting people do many things right from their wrist – like check in for a flight, get directions, answer the phone, play music,” said Nancy Nunziati, Neato’s vice president of marketing. “Why not cleaning? We’re happy to be the first to add this new task to the list.”
