Version 3.3.1 includes a new feature, exclusive to the Apple Watch: The Team Driver. This feature is only available on iOS Devices.
The Team Driver participates in Career Events on your behalf for a small one-time entry fee. When the Team Driver finishes a race, you can collect the winnings and move onto the next event.
While the Team Driver participates in a race, you are still free to participate in other events on your paired device at the same time. However, you will need to select a different vehicle while the Team Driver competes in their event.
The Team Driver is available to race in the first available Event that you have yet to complete in your Real Racing 3 Career.
Please note that they are unable to participate in any Bonus Series Event, time-limited Special Events (such as Speed Rush TV Challenge), Time Trial Events, or Showcase Events.
Using the Team Driver
After pairing your device with your Apple Watch, be sure to allow Real Racing 3 to connect.
After activating the Team Driver on your Apple Watch, you are presented with the first chronologically available event that you have yet to complete in your Career. Tap "Start" so your Team Driver may commence racing in that Event.
While the Team Driver participates in the race, a timer is displayed indicating their progress through the event. This timer will also appear on the event when you view it on your paired device.
The Team Driver will continue racing in this Event until they obtain first place - the Best Result will always be displayed in the middle of this circle.
You may instantly complete the current attempt with a small Gold fee. Please note that this does not guarantee that your Team Driver will finish in first position.
Tapping Stop will end the Team Driver's participation in the Event, where you will be able to collect your winnings. If the Team Driver obtains a Trophy in the event, they are then able to continue on to the next chronological event.
There may be instances where your currency totals may not be synchronized between your Apple Watch and your paired device - your paired device's currency totals will always be correct. Collecting your reward on your Apple Watch will update your Currency details to their correct values.
What happens if my Apple Watch disconnects/turns off during a Team Driver's Race?
If your Apple Watch disconnects from your paired device for any reason, you will be able to navigate to the Event on your device and collect your reward through the regular Career Menu. However, you will not be able to start new Events for your Team Driver without the Apple Watch.
What happens if the App on the device is closed or my paired device turns off during a Team Driver's Race?
Your Apple Watch stores three Events. Your Team Driver will be able to continue racing in these Events, however you will need to open the Real Racing 3 app on your paired device to update your winnings and then receive new Events for your Team Driver.
Can I use the Team Driver on multiple devices?
The Team Driver will only work with the device that is paired with your Apple Watch. Any progress your Team Driver makes will be only added to the save data on your paired device - if you wish to update their progress onto another device, you will need to follow our save data transfer instructions here.
Can I use the Team Driver on my Android Device?
This feature is only available on iOS Devices.
Can I race in the same Event that the Team Driver is currently participating in?
No, but you are free to participate in any other Event while the Team Driver is racing.
*please note, if your watch it not receiving any more races, please ensure that you have purchased a car that is eligible to race in the next series*
