What to consider when buying a robotic mower

What if you could have a perfectly cut lawn, come rain or shine? Here are a few things to keep in mind before you buy the best robotic mower for your garden.

What’s the size of your lawn?

When looking for a mower you should pick one that can handle the size of your lawn. But remember that cutting capability is generally based on a flat and open lawn, so if your lawn is undulating or there are bushes, it’s better to choose a mower with a greater capacity. This is also important if you don’t want it to cut during the night.

Does your garden have steep banks?

If you have a lawn with steep banks you should pick a mower fit for the job, with good traction and power. Robotic mowers work even when it rains, so pick one with wheels that have a good grip. Our most powerful version is the Automower™ 330X, which handles slopes with up to 45% inclination.

Is your garden complex?

If your garden has intricate passages and different sections you have to ensure that your mower is capable of handling a complex garden. A tip is to select a mower with guide wires; they are an easy way to make sure that the cutter can handle the narrowest passages.

Security system

Make sure that your robotic mower is equipped with a pin code lock, alarm and preferably also a GPS-tracker. If you report your stolen product to the dealer they should blacklist your mower, making future servicing impossible.

Is the display easy to understand?

Most people don’t think about it when selecting a robotic mower, but it’s a good idea to check how the system actually works. Check the manual and have a look at the display to see if it is clear, intuitive and easy to navigate. Remember that even if most settings are done when installing your mower, timer settings and cutting length often change over a season.

Safety first!

Pets and children should not be allowed to be in the same area as the mower, but of course this can happen. You should therefore consider a mower with a cutting disc with retractable blades. Since the mower cuts each day it only cuts a little bit and if a paw or foot gets under the mower, it will not result in a serious injury.

Is there a workshop close by?

When selecting a robotic mower you should also consider how easily available a workshop is. A good dealer or workshop will help you with repairs, servicing, software updates and winter storage. Check if we have dealers close to you.

Things to consider before you buy:


  • Tracks and size of the wheels affects how easily it can get up steep banks
  • Is it easy to use and service? It’s annoying if you have to call for service just because the system is hard to understand
  • Get a bigger machine if you have a lot of banks and a complex garden

    Husqvarna launches Apple Watch app for Husqvarna Automower®

    As the first producer of outdoor power products in the world, Husqvarna has launched an app for Apple Watch. With the Automower® Connect Apple Watch app you always have the status of your robotic mower at an arms reach – no matter where you are.

    Husqvarna Automower® Connect is a smartphone app that allows you to interact with your robotic mower from wherever you are. Now it’s time for the sequel. The Automower® Connect Apple Watch app makes it even easier and more enjoyable to own the Husqvarna Automower®.

    Key interactions 

    The Automower® Connect Apple Watch app contains the most essential functionalities of the smartphone app. It enables you to quickly start, park, stop and check the status of your robotic mower, right from your wrist. If you are in the supermarket and your daughter wants to let the dog out into the garden, she won’t have to wait until you get home. Simply stop the Automower® with a command from your Apple Watch. There’s also a glance feature, giving you access to the status of your mower with a simple swipe on the watch face.

    Andreas Källming, who has been part of developing the app, explains that designing for Apple Watch requires a whole new approach to interactions compared with when you design for smartphones and tablets.

    “The Apple Watch is not created for you to interact with for more than three or four seconds at a time. You should be able to take action quickly – and then get on with your day. It should liberate you from your smartphone, yet keep you informed and in control”, he says.  

    Your personal digital eco-system

    The market for wearable technology is growing and Andreas Källming sees a future where connected products such as cars, keys, means of identification – and now robotic mowers – will create personal digital eco-systems, that simplifies everyday life for the users.

    “We are always working to have a cutting edge approach to new technology and we continue to look for new ways to make it more fun and convenient to own and use our products”, Källming concludes.

    For a closer look at the watch, take a look at this video.

    The Automower® Connect Apple Watch app is available for Husqvarna Automower® models 320 and 330X. The robotic mower must be equipped with a SIM card. Talk to your dealer for information about pricing and installation.
