The parkOmator app has three basic pieces to it that can help you out of a jam. First, just park your car and press “I am parked here.” Next, enter the hours and minutes for when you need to return to your vehicle. Last, you will receive an alert when it is time to head back to your car plus directions to get there. The app works on both iPhone and Apple Watch.

What is it about?
Having parkOmator available for both iPhone and Apple Watch means you don’t even have to take your phone out of your bag or pocket. Everything you need to do can be done from your wrist and the notification will pop up there as well. There is also a great Glance for Apple Watch so that you can quickly check how much time you have remaining or when the meter expired if you are running late.
For those who...

Why we love it
Whether it comes down to remembering where you parked or what time you set the meter for, parkOmator can help. Set your parking spot, time until you need to return, and then get notified when time is up.
App Store Description
parkOmator was designed exclusively for the Apple Watch. This original parking ticket solution saves you from the expensive fines and hours wasted in court. parkOmator was created for the watch so it has a clear and intuitive interface and is easy to use.
You need only 3 taps on your watch to access the built-in functionality of parkOmator.
STEP ONE: Park your car, press “I am parked here” so the app locates and remembers your geo-location on a map.
STEP TWO: Tell parkOmator when you need to return to your car. parkOmator starts a countdown and will remind you before your time is up.
STEP THREE: parkOmator has a “smart” notifications system. Your watch will remind you where you’re parked, show you on a map the fastest way to get back to your car…all before your meter expires or “time is up”!
The local parking “police” will hate that you’re using parkOmator! You will love this app since it will help you avoid expensive parking tickets. Think about what you can do with the money you will save from paying those fines and fees. This app will reduce stress, save you money and time. You have a “smart phone” for a reason…just make it “smarter” by using parkOmator as your “parking assistant”.
For the best user experience, parkOmator is accessible through Glances and Siri so you don’t need to search for it among all your watch apps on a small screen.
parkOmator is a cool way to avoid parking tickets.
