Bitdefender announced a new update to its Android app that enables support for Android Wear devices as well, in an attempt to give owners of smartphones some extra help in preventing the possible theft of their product.

The new version will enable three new features if a person owns both an Android smartphone and an Android Wear product:

  • Phone Alert - Your smart watch will vibrate when you step too far away from your phone
  • Scream - Use your Android Wear device to locate your phone. Ping your smartphone from your smart watch, and it will scream for you even if you left it on silent.
  • Vocal Command - You can simply say, "Where's my phone?" to find the device.

Do you think this update to Bitdefender will be a help for people who own a smartphone and a smartwatch based on Android?
