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.”
With the wearable game heating up from Apple Watch. Looks like android wear is stepping up it’s game against Apple. Off course you will have a limit of functions you will be able to do with android wear and the iPhone. But this will give iPhone consumers more options now instead of only a Apple Watch which starts at $400.
But it sucks that android wear on the iPhone won’t support older models. I have a Samsung Gear android wear smart watch and now I won’t be able to use.
I wonder if Apple will play nice with the android wear in the app store.
