It’s been quite a while since Google first divulged their plans of making Android Wears work with iPhone, and finally they’ve launched the app called Android Wear that enables this functionality.
The app, available in App Store, gives Android Wear users access to iPhone 5 and newer models running iOS 8.2 and up. It can show notifications about calls, messages, app updates, and Google Now reminders for upcoming appointments, traffic, flight status etc.
This means that those who are not willing to pay $350+ for the Apple Watch, yet want to have a smartwatch for their iPhone, can now fulfill their desire by paying anything upwards of $150. The experience, however, will not be exactly the same as you get on Apple Watch. For instance, the app will not be able to sync data with Apple’s HealthKit, instead it will send info back to Google Fit. Also, third-part watch apps from Google Play will not be available.
