With the final details about pricing and launch dates expected at Apple’s March 9 event, Apple CEO Tim Cook shared another feature being built into the watch; it could potentially replace your car keys.

Cook told The Telegraph that the watch was designed to replace your car keys and the key fobs used by car security systems. So not only does Apple want you to leave your phone in your pocket, but also your keys.

We’re going to need bigger pockets.

Of course, no one at Apple can even mention cars without speculation that the company is building its own vehicle. While a car isn’t expected for years, the Apple Watch is expected to ship sometime in April.
