Smart Home…..On Your Wrist

Garmin is integrating with the Samsung SmartThings app, letting its Connect IQ-compatible devices start talking to your smart home appliances. With the update you’ll be able to control lighting, TV, kitchen appliances and anything else you have connected to the central SmartThings hub.

You’ll be able to choose from any of your routines directly on your Garmin wearable, which will communicate to the SmartThings “brain” via your smartphone. For example, you may have a pre-set routine for going to bed that turns off the TV and dims the lights.

There are some other notable features being rolled out, the first of which is called Background Services and lets third-party apps continue running in the background when you’re not actively using them. They can pop up with notifications when necessary or just keep communicating with paired sensors.
