The app has been reviewed, and approved by the Nest Labs QA department.
The app fully supports Apple Watch LTE, and can work when the iPhone is not around - as long as the watch itself has internet access (either LTE or WiFi).
Apple Watch and Nest Learning Thermostat. Together in perfect harmony.
Thermo Watch offers the quickest, most intuitive way of controlling your Nest Thermostat:
• From the watch face, tap on the Thermo Watch complication to open the app. Spin the Digital Crown, or Swipe up/down to adjust the temperature. You can start adjusting the moment the app opens.
• On your iOS device you can press firmly onto the app icon to open a quick popout menu, you can swipe to the notification center to adjust the temperature on the Widget, or you can just open the app. Again, you can start adjusting the moment the controls appear.
• From your Apple TV, open the app, and swipe up/down on the remote to change the temperate.
In the watch app, the Digital Crown behavior is carefully tuned for this purpose, so you wont be overshooting the desired temperature. The watch will let you know with a chime and a tap, that the thermostat has received and applied your command. At home or outside - control from anywhere you have the internet access.
Monitor your Thermostats and Home/Away status right from the watch face, using complications that update in the background, without having to launch the app.
On your Watch, you can use your voice to control the temperature. Just tap on the Voice Input button and say "74", "Start Heating" or "Stop Cooling". If you have multiple thermostats you can even address them directly, by saying for example "Start Heating Upstairs" or "Start Cooling the Living Room". It will work, no matter which thermostat is currently displayed in the app.
If youre in the mood for it, you can even say things like "Computer, set the temperature to 74 degrees, Im freezing!". Thatll work too.
The app supports multiple thermostats in multiple homes - just swipe left and right on your Watch screen to access them, or see them all at the same time in the iOS Widget and the app. Fahrenheit and Celsius are both supported, with the correct half-degree setting for Celsius.
Beyond that, you can press the Watch screen firmly for additional functions, like switching to a heating or cooling mode, setting the away status, or turning the fan on and off.
While the apps minimalist looks betray the simplicity of its operation, what they dont show is the amount of planning, design, development and refinement that went into it, ensuring it becomes something that is enjoyable to use and experience.
The goal was to make a product that would feel like it truly belongs to the Nest ecosystem, and that would not look out of place next to one of the apps bundled with the Apple Watch. A tall order, but in the end, delivered - the app has been thoroughly reviewed by Nest Labs, and approved for their Works With Nest partner program.
