Now iPhone can pair with Android Wear watches

4 Sep 2015

Yes, dear reader you heard me right. On 31st Aug 2015, Google Inc. rolled out Android Wear for iOS.  So, if you have an Android Wear SmartWatch, probably from ASUS, Motorola, LG Electronic or Huawei, you can connect it to iPhone (including iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, or 6 Plus) now. isn’t it a ground-breaking move by Google?

“ We agree. So whoever You are, and whatever You like—Android Wear lets you wear what you want.”, said Jeff Chang, lead product manager for Android Wear at Google Inc. , in his recent post at his official blog.

The company announces that for now the Android Wear Compliance to iOS platform is limited to the LG Watch Urbane, an Android Wear SmartWatch by LG Electronics. And they are soon launching updates for Android Wear Smartwatches from other manufacturers.

How to pair up your iPhone with an Android Watch

You will need to download the app named ‘Android Wear app” from the app store in order to sync your iPhone with the Android watch successfully. Here it is worth noting that the Android Wear app allows pairing of iPhone 5 and its descendant only. Once synced successfully, you can change settings and manage notifications coming straight to your wrist-wear. This certainly marks the dawn of new era of smart wearables.

Android Wear release for iOS – What Benefits It Brought to the Table

Inspite of some rivalry-inspired strict restrictions from Apple Inc., Google has succeeded in embracing a good number of features into iOS devices, mainly iPhones. Using this Android Wear App into your iPhone, you can check notifications from your everyday apps, and see messages and phone calls directly in your smart wristwatch powered by Google’s Android software.

What’s more, setting-up this app, users can also get email alerts, view calendar items and get fitness updates; imagine your SmartWatch keeping a close eye on how long you walk or run and for how many hours. Did I say, this smart wearable on your wrist will also help you know your heart rate in real time. Goes without saying, keeping track on your fitness goals is going to be much easier after this.

iPhone users will be able to get updates for weather forecast, flight, appointments, traffic and a lot more using Google Now. Users can also create a to-do list and get notified by a SmartWatch. One of the best features of this Android Wear is we, users, will never need to shake or move watch to turn on display, instead it has default always-on display setting configured.

But Google hasn’t eliminated all iOS restrictions. While iPhone users have been blessed with an Android alternative to Apple Watch for the first time, they won’t be able to use some Android features including third-party apps and Google’s maps from the Google Play store.

Here it is interesting to know that even the cheapest of Apple’s SmartWatch is much costlier than Android SmartWatches (LG Watch Urbane is priced from $278). And experts forecast that the Android wearable price will further reduce with the growing market competition.

Regardless if you are seeking a price benefit or want a circular-shape dial face for your SmartWatch, Android Wear SmartWatch is a great choice. What’s more, it is anticipated that smart wearable market will grow to 89 million by 2019 from 33 million in current year.

Let’s stay tuned for some more exciting news on our way for these smart wearable by two top-notch market rivals – Apple and Google.
