Together we are making personalised lighting simpler and more accessible through the convenience of Apple Watch,” said Eric Rondolat, CEO at Philips Lighting.
According to the press release by Philips, Apple Watch uses the widgets from the Philips Hue app to control the lights in your home and activate your favourite light scenes, ensuring you have the light that you want wherever you are in the house.

Also through Apple Watch, precise personalisation of your lighting is possible within the same room. Whether preparing dinner, working or reading a book, new lighting zones can be created thanks to Philips Hue and Apple Watch,” reads the press release.
Philips Hue combines brilliant LED light with intuitive technology. Available in E26, E27, GU10, PAR16 and BR30 formats, Hue light bulbs deliver clear and crisp light in every colour in the spectrum.
