Tesla time it is: EV maker involved in development of smartwatch, says report

Tesla may be best known for its electric cars that are quite the rage in markets across the world but it isn't uncommon for the company to branch out to other roads, some often less taken.

Its EVs are packed to the brim with features that borrow heavily from technological advancements - whether it is to improve drive dynamics or provide creature comforts.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk had recently said that the possibility of games being incorporated into the infotainment screens inside cars is being hastened and this is just another proof of the degree to which the EV maker can play the field.
