Two of Automatic’s most popular features are now conveniently found on your wrist.

The business tagging feature on Apple Watch takes even more friction out of the expensing process. The IRS lets you deduct $0.57 per mile of business driving—if that wasn’t worth the effort before you should have no excuses now.

At the end of each trip, a prompt on the Watch will allow you to tag the trip as business. That’s it. As noted above, the tags on trips will be visible in the phone app, the APIs, and soon on the web dashboard. In time, we know that 3rd party apps that connect into Automatic will make use of these tags directly. We’ve come a long way since manual logbooks!

Secondly, Automatic marks your exact location every time you park. That’s nothing new (but it is one of our favorite features). Now that same parking map is even easier to get to: just lift your wrist. When looking for your car, just swipe up from the Watch face to see the map in the Automatic “glance”. Or enter the Automatic app on Apple Watch to get the same.
