Google has just announced through its official blog that Android Wear now officially works with iPhones. A few days ago Huawei kind of let the cat out of the bag with an Amazon listing for its Huawei watch and there has been plenty of rumors about iPhone support for Android Wear coming leading up to now. Now it is official and the first watch to work with Android Wear is the LG Urbane. Google says the Huawei watch and more Android watches are on the slate to work with iOS soon and to keep your eyes peeled for them.
When you wear something every day, you want to be sure it really works for you. That’s why Android Wear offers countless design choices, so you can find the watch that fits your style. 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.
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.
This is a major move by Google to court iPhone users over to Android Wear devices – and a smart one at that. We’ll look forward to iOS functionality on the Moto 360 so we can test it for ourselves. In the meantime, what do you think of this announcement? Let us know in the comments below or on Google+, Facebook and Twitter.
