“Smartwatches are letting people do many things right from their wrist – like check in for a flight, get directions, answer the phone, play music,” said Nancy Nunziati, Neato’s vice president of marketing. “Why not cleaning? We’re happy to be the first to add this new task to the list.”

Botvac Connected already allows users to manage their robot through their iOS or Android smart phones when connected to a Wi-Fi network. Now users can start, stop and receive notifications about the cleaning session with just a glance or tap on the wrist. With smart laser navigation, two different cleaning modes, long lasting Lithium Ion battery and Neato’s iconic D shape designed for cleaning corners and close to edges and walls, Botvac Connected delivers superior cleaning performance for $699.

Neato Botvac Connected continues to win awards and recommendations from industry experts and customers alike. The robot vacuum’s performance, navigation and intelligence offer consumers the best price and performance choice in the robot vacuum category.
