While the spotlight today is on the Apple Watch, there are other smart watch options on the market. The big problem that most people use Android Wear (Google's operating system for wearables), which is not compatible with iPhones. Today, that has changed.
Google will make the application available today Android Wear for iOS, which is compatible with iPhones 5, 5c, 5s, 6 and 6 Plus (running iOS 8.2 minimally).
For now it will only work with the LG Watch Urbane, but Google has said that all future watch models from Huawei, ASUS and Motorola will also be compatible with the app. Nothing has been said about the possibility that the current watches (which run Android Wear and are already on the market, such as the Moto 360) gain compatibility with iPhones, which is a little frustrating.
