Google has this week release a new version of Android Wear that now supports Apple iOS devices in the form of the iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, or 6 Plus running Apple’s iOS 8.2 or higher operating system.
Currently the latest Android Wear for iOS only supports the LG Watch Urbane Android smartwatch, but Google explains that in the future all Android Wear watches, including those from created by Huawei, Asus, and Motorola will also support iOS.
The latest Android for iOS software has already started rolling out and will allows users to pair Android watches with iOS devices offering the following features :
– 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.”

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.
Dr. Seuss once said: “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” We agree. So whoever You are, and whatever You like—Android Wear lets you wear what you want.
