Google Announces That Android Wear Now Works With iPhones

Google has recently announced officially that smartwatches powered by Android Wear is now compatible to work with iPhones.

Want a round watch with a more classic look? Feel like a new watch band? How about changing things up every day with watch faces from artists and designers? With Android Wear you can do all of that. And now, Android Wear watches work with iPhones.


Note that it is not for all iPhones though, only those running iOS 8.2 and newer are supported (that includes the iPhone 5). Apart from that, also note that the app only works with the newest.

Apart from checking notifications, here are some things it can do:
Get your info at a glance: Check important info like phone calls, messages, and notifications from your favorite apps. Android Wear features always-on displays, so you’ll never have to move your wrist to wake up your watch.
Follow your fitness: Set fitness goals, and get daily and weekly views of your progress. Your watch automatically tracks walking and running, and even measures your heart rate.
Save time with smart help: Receive timely tips like when to leave for appointments, current traffic info, and flight status. Just say “Ok Google” to ask questions like “Is it going to rain in London tomorrow?” or create to-dos with “Remind me to pack an umbrella.”

Today, Android Wear for iOS works with the LG Watch Urbane. All future Android Wear watches, including those from Huawei, Asus, and Motorola will also support iOS. so stay tuned for the updates.
