Big news coming from Google today, Android Wear now works with iPhones. Now iOS users will be able to take full advantage of their Android Wear device, getting notifications from apps, replying to messages, tracking your fitness goals and more. These are some of the features of Android Wear for iPhone users:
- 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.”
For now, Android Wear works on iOS with the LG Watch Urbane, but future devices will be added to the list. You will need to have an iPhone 5 or newer, running iOS 8.2 or higher.
