Android Wear Smartwatches Work with iPhone Now

Google announces Android Wear app for Apple iPhones.

Google just announced the Android Wear app that enables Android Wear smartwatches to work with the Apple iPhone. This has been a long time in the making but today it is here.

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.”

The caveat is that the Android Wear iOS app only works with the LG Watch Urbane. All future Android Wear watches, including those from Huawei Asus, and Motorola will also support iOS.

Update: Owners of MOTO 360, LG G Watch R and other brands confirm that the Android iOS app works with their watches. Google apparently just does not want to officially support them.
