Levi and Google have updated their $ 350 smartjack so that owners never leave their phone.
The interactive trucker jacket was designed using Google and uses a high-tech conductive fabric to connect to a smartphone.
With a brush of a cover, users can pause or skip a song or use Google maps without the hassle of getting a phone.
Now a new update can set an automatic warning if your phone is too far away.

The jackets were made using jacquard technology, named after the Frenchman who invented a kind of loom.
The Jacquard yarn structures combine thin, metal alloys with natural materials such as cotton and silk.
It looks like a normal jack, but these small wires mean that it can send and receive signals.
Computers with a button size can then communicate with a mobile phone and other devices.
You can play or pause your music, go to the next song or ask which song is playing.
You can also find your next direction, ETA or the current time.
A subtle LED light and a vibration on your sleeve let you answer calls or text messages and read the text message.
Called Always Together was revealed by Android Police.
When a phone is out of range, a notification is activated on the handset.
A label on the jacket also begins to flash and vibrate.
The connected denim jacket costs about $ 350 (£ 286).
The product is called a Commuter Trucker Jacket and is designed for people who are on the move and do not have time to stop and view their phone or watch.
It is the first commercial product created by a small Google team called Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) that use Jacquard technology to create smart & # 39; conductive substance that connects to electronic devices.
A label, the size of a button, connects the conductive wires in the cuff of the jacket with an electronic device.
The data can be transmitted wirelessly to smartphones or other devices, allowing actions such as making calls or sending messages with dust brushes.
It has similar functions as a smart watch, except that it is less conspicuous.

You can play or pause your music, go to the next song or ask what song is playing by simply swiping your sleeve
The release date was originally this spring, but Levi's worldwide product innovation, head of Paul Dillinger and Project Jacquard of Project, Ivan Poupyrev, announced that they are remembering the date during the SXSW festival.
Everyone on a bike knows that navigating on your screen while navigating through busy streets in the city is not easy – or a particularly good idea, "said Dillinger.
& # 39; This jacket helps to solve that real challenge by being the co-pilot for your life, on and off your bike, "he said.
The product was first announced at the Google I / O developer conference last May, writes The Verge.
You can configure the movement by tapping on it, selecting a skill from the carousel and the ability to assign a move by dragging and dropping
The jacket is made of jacquard yarns that are indistinguishable from the traditional yarns used today to produce fabrics
Remove the tag and the entire garment is washable and durable – like regular denim.
Jacquard yarns can not be distinguished from the traditional yarns.

The yarn structure combines thin, metallic alloys with natural and synthetic yarns such as cotton, polyester or silk, which makes the yarn strong enough to be woven on any industrial weaving loom.
Everything that has to do with dust, from suits or dresses to furniture or carpet, can be influenced by computer node style.
& # 39; If there is a chance to give the clothes we already hold the opportunity to help us access the best and most necessary of this digital world, while keeping eye contact with the person with whom we are dining , is this a real added value, & # 39; said Mr. Dillinger.
& # 39; If we can deliver that value in the form of clothing that you already love as friends and fans of this brand, it's a project that's worth doing. & # 39;
