If you’re lazy, yet tech-savvy, you have a robotic vacuum cleaner do the floors for your. If you’re lazy, but REALLY tech-savvy, you have a robot vacuum that you control via your Apple Watch.
Neato has revealed that its $699/£550 Botvac Connected is the first robotic vacuum you can control with an Apple Watch or Android Wear device. As long as you’re connected to the same WiFi network, you can start and stop the cleaning program and receive status notifications from your wrist, without even needing to set down your drink.
At $699, (Same price on Amazon), the Botvac Connected is cheaper than a number of robot vacs, such as the Roomba 980, which doesn’t even have Apple Watch controls yet! (The nerve of some robots!) Although Engadget does report that the Botvac does have a tendency to get stuck in corners occasionally, but a swift kick in the butt(vac) should get it going again.
