Android Wear now works with iPhones

Android Wear now works with iPhones. We knew the day was coming and now its here! This is great news and goes to show you that #DroidDoes! The ability for Android Wear to work with iPhones is awesome news. There are so many reasons why having Android Wear work is great!

First of all, while this is great news there is a little catch. At the moment the LG Urbane watch is the only one officially supported. Google let’s us know that Huawei, Asus, and Motorola will also support iOS, so stay tuned for more. My excitement was halted when I read that the Moto 360 isn’t officially supported yet. I was ready to go home and make a video adding a Moto 360 to an iPhone 6 Plus. Looks like I’ll have to wait for that content. Regardless I am still happy about the update and I am going to try to connect to my Moto 360 as soon as I can!

Android Wear for iOS is rolling out today. Just pair your iPhone (iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, or 6 Plus running iOS 8.2+) with an Android Wear watch to bring simple and helpful information right to your wrist:

  • 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.”

Android Wear working with iPhones is great because this gives iPhone users MANY more options to choose from in case you don’t want an overly priced Apple Watch that looks like a toy. Android Wear watches come in a variety of styles, models, and colors. If I was an iPhone user looking to get a smartwatch, I would be a happy camper right now!

So if you’re an iPhone user looking to get a smartwatch, does this change things up a bit or is it Apple Watch FTW? Let us know in the comments!
