The much-rumored launch of an Android Wear app for iOS is now happening. Google has just launched the new app is rolling out, and if you use an iPhone 5 or your phone is running on the newer iOS 8.2 you will be able to use the app.
There is a limitation regarding which Android Wear-powered smartwatches you can use with your iPhone. Google does however promise that all future Android Wear watches will come with support for iOS, so there’s that.
On an iPhone, the Android Wear app won’t be able to do some things it can do on Android but nevertheless it does quite a few things e.g you can check notifications on your watch, read messages, set fitness goals, get daily and weekly views of your fitness progress, as well as receive various tips – such as when to leave for appointments, traffic info, or flight status.
As we all expect, your Android Wear smartwatch will automatically track walking and running, it measures your heart rate, and then gives you that information even if you’re using the iOS app. And you can ask it questions by saying “OK Google” followed by what you need to find out. Reminders can be created too, also just by using your voice.
