    as the title states. Is there anyone currently working on an app that will allow you to get alerted when you walk a certain distance from your phone? For example, leaving the phone in the car and as you start walking away from the car the watch will remind you to check for the phone. I see many situations where this will come in handy. Even they can include a gps shot of where the phone is.

    Is there something close to that in the meant time?

    I believe the Galaxy Gear has something like that built in.

    This should be a native feature of the OS

    The Apple Watch has something like this with the red iPhone icon when it has lost connection with the iPhone. A tap on the wrist as a reminder seems to be an easy fix.

    I think this too. It would be useful for me since I'm always forgetting my phone.

    What would be cool in the future would be if they could connect across the internet through icloud. The watch can connect to wifi so I would imagine this is technically possible.

    I know the Garmin vivoactive range has no wifi, but the forums are split down the middle with those of us who hate that feature and those who love it. So if it does come in the OS then it should be configurable...
