It was already expected for a while and now it’s official: the iPhone now works with Android Wear smartwatches. The condition is that you are in possession of an iPhone 5 or later running iOS 8.2+.

Furthermore, the iPhone Android Wear support does not apply to all smartwatches that run on Google’s platform. At present, only the LG Watch Urbane is supported, and there will soon be support for the new smartwatches from Asus and Huawei. Earlier Android Wear smartwatches are not yet compatible with the iPhone. Are you in possession of a Motorola Moto 360 or another older watch, then you’re still unlucky.
