Google made a wholly unexpected announcement today with respect to its Android Wear devices: namely, Android Wear is compatible starting today with iOS. Just download the app, and you'll now be able to pair your Android smartwatch with your iPhone (as long as it's an iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, or 6 Plus running iOS 8.2+). Benefits include the ability to check phone calls and messages at a glance, track your fitness, and receive time-saving tips like traffic info and flight data. For now, Android Wear for iOS works with the LG Watch Urbane, with future Android Wear watches from Huawei (pictured here), Asus, and Motorola to follow.
