Is Google Bringing Apple iPhone Support To Android Wear Smartwatches?
"Compatible with most devices with an iOS 8.2 or Android 4.3 or later operating system," the product listing indicates.
According to The Verge and "a close source to the development team" that it spoke with, this is something that Google's been working on for at least the past several months. That being the case, it doesn't appear that supporting iOS 8.2 and above is a feature that Huawei somehow managed to make possible, but is part of a future version of Android Wear.
It will be interesting to see how Huawei's smartwatch does. Starting at $349, Huawei is in Apple Watch territory. It also offers a gold version for $800 -- pricey on its own, though far less expensive than the $10,000 to $17,000 Apple Watch Edition.
