Google today said that Android Wear watches work with Apple iPhones.

Android Wear for iOS is rolling out today. You can pair your iPhones such as iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, or 6 Plus running iOS 8.2+ with an Android Wear watch.

Android Wear allows you to check information like phone calls, messages, and notifications from your favorite apps. Android Wear features always-on displays, so you’ll never have to move your wrist to wake up your watch.

You can also set fitness goals, and get daily and weekly views of progress. Your watch automatically tracks walking and running, and even measures your heart rate.

You can receive timely tips like when to leave for appointments, current traffic info, and flight status. Just say “Ok Google” to ask questions like “Is it going to rain in London tomorrow?” or create to-dos with “Remind me to pack an umbrella.”

Android Wear for iOS works with the LG Watch Urbane. All future Android Wear watches, including those from Huawei, Asus, and Motorola will also support iOS, said David Singleton, director of Engineering, Android Wear, in a blog post.
