Hi!
As a vendor here at TMC I have created this support thread for the app DRIVE Electric for Tesla made for Samsung watches. This includes the model range from Gear S3 to the new Galaxy Watch 3 running on TizenOS.* If it appears in the Galaxy Store app on your connected phone, it should be compatible.

In short:
The DRIVE Electric for Tesla app puts Samsung watch owners in direct communication with their electric Tesla vehicles anytime and anywhere. With possibilities to schedule climate and charging, and the new cool 'On Approach' feature, it even outperforms the official app on your phone. Check it out now!

The app has been out since 2019 and has many happy users all over the world. However, this is not a profitable project. The combination of Tesla and Samsung watch owners creates a narrow market, and all development, bug fixes and support happens in my spare time. Still, I hope you will be happy with the app and the support you get.

My main channel for support and information is at the Drive Electric for Tesla page on Facebook,. Please take a look and like/follow that page for version updates, feedback and other information. Also feel free to ask questions here on this thread too.

* The Gear S2 has its own app named DRIVE Electric for Tesla S2. This app is deprecated and will only receive emergency updates.

DRIVE Electric for Tesla v4.5.5 is out.
All new and updated watch apps on the Galaxy Store underwent a thorough screening of intellectual property rights this time, so it took longer than usual to get it verified (absolutely no infringement remarks btw).

This version brings along stability improvements and a refreshed and faster UI amongst other things.
Check out more here.

DRIVE Electric for Tesla v4.7.6 is out now. Take a look here!
Some highlights:
- Senior Mode
- Sleep Mode
- Queued commands

Senior Mode brings colored buttons to the controls menu so you don't have to wear your reading glasses to hit the correct command. Memorize the color instead (see picture).
Sleep Mode will not wake your car on app startup. It will only wake the car if you actively communicate with the car by sending a command etc.
With queued commands you can stack commands to a queue by long-pressing a command button. Tapping the last command will execute them all in a row. Example: Long-press Homelink button, long-press Unlock button and finally tap Start button. This will send all three commands in a row without waiting for each one to complete.

PS! A quick fix version v4.7.7 is already sent in for verification. This will fix unresponsible +/- buttons in the Charging and Climate view.
