Android Wear App Arrives on iOs
Thanks to Android Wear, a new companion app introduced by Google, users don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars anymore for a smartwatch that pairs with their iPhone. From now on, iPhone owners are invited to try and use Android Wear to work with their Apple iPhone, as this app lets the two devices work together. In the beginning only the LG Watch Urbane is supported. However support for all future Android Wear watches is coming. Huawei, Asus and Motorola will be included in the package. Apple’s own watch still is exclusive to iPhones, and Apple is very unlikely to change this practice. In fact, the most genuine smartwatch experience for iPhone owner will be provided by the Apple Watch.
To run the Android Wear for iOS on Google’s smartwatches, users need iOS 8.2 or better on their iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, or 6 Plus. This app brings fitness tracking, notifications, contextual information and so on from pop-up Google Now cards. Gmail, Google Fit, Google Translate, Google Weather, Google Alarm, Google Agenda, Apple Calendar, Google Calendar. Other useful features are available, as well as all third-party app notifications also work with the software.
Android Wear App allows users to change the watch face, to flick through information too on their watch or to perform voice searches.
It’s good to know that due to software limitations, Android Wear for iOS isn’t bringing support for third-party Google Play Store apps. Experts are dubious if Android Wear for iOs will boost sales of Google-powered hardware. Indeed, Apple device adepts generally are loyal to their company. Anyway, for notifications and Google’s own services, people can spend far less for their smartwatch for less than half of the price of an Apple Watch Sport.
