Key Features of ETA 3 for Apple Watch

An update like no other!

ETA first arrived on the Apple Watch back in June 2015, just two months after the Apple Watch itself hit the shelves. At the time ETA was a revolution, providing users travel time to their favourite places right on their wrist. Over the last six years, ETA has cemented itself as a must have app for the Apple Watch and has been heralded by the press, featured by the App Store and loved by users all around the globe.

This week we pushed ETA to new heights, launching a completely new app for Apple Watch. It's the most comprehensive update we've ever shipped, providing users a fully featured and uncompromised app experience on Apple's most personal device. Best of all it's a free update for all existing ETA users.

ETA 3 for Apple Watch has been rebuilt from the ground up with a focus to be entirely independent from the iPhone. Everything from install to initial setup can be completed on the Apple Watch. With ETA 3 for Apple Watch you can leave your iPhone at home!

ETA is renowned for its simplicity, and nothing has changed with this new app. But under the hood users have access to exceptionally powerful features allowing them to truly customise and personalise their experience.

Your locations, in a flash

ETA 3 for Apple Watch displays all your locations in a flash. For those that drive, travel time and traffic status are clearly visible (and again instantly available). For the first time ETA supports cycling as a travel mode, and alongside support for driving, transit and walking, helping users quickly determine the most time efficient way to travel to their destination.

Advanced options allow users to customise the information displayed on the screen and smart ordering can rearrange locations based on travel time.

What is now the core of ETA, users will be pleased to know that traffic conditions continue to be clearly displayed with directions easily available.
