The Jaguar Active Key
For all the extreme sports fans and swimmers out there Jaguar has just the answer for trying to keep your keys safe. Instead of forcing you to try and keep a key in a protected pocket, or relying on a code to gain entry to your vehicle, Jaguar has come up with an Activity Key to help make the process much simpler. It’s an easy solution that will help you swap out those cumbersome keys for a sleek and stylish wristband instead. That means you can forget about trying to find a place to stash your keys, including in a wheel well storage case, and you can move on to a more reliable means of keeping your items safe.
How it Works
You leave your keys right in the F-PACE when you get out so they are ready for you when you decide that you want to leave. Wearing the Activity Key around your wrist, you walk to the rear of the vehicle and touch the wristband against the designated spot to lock up the SUV. When you finish with your activities you walk back to the tailgate once again and touch the same spot with the key to unlock the SUV and get back inside to use the standard key to drive away.
Bring it Anywhere
The wristband can be carried anywhere that you go. It’s entirely waterproof and designed to remain firmly on your wrist no matter what the activities are. Whether you are surfing out in the ocean, swimming laps or taking part in a impromptu basketball game at the nearby rec center you won’t have to worry about losing your keys ever again.
Adding it to the vehicle
Anyone that decides they want the Activity Key with the Jaguar F-PACE can have it added to it with a $400 option. There’s no information about whether it will be available for other Jaguar models in the future, but it’s sure to be offered with the first ever SUV from the automaker.
The new feature known as Activity Key will debut on the 2017 Jaguar F-PACE SUV and it should be another good reason to consider getting the vehicle. The SUV is set to be released with a base price of $41,985, and there is a limited edition version of the vehicle that will start at $70,695 and move up from there.
