If you are wondering how to pair you smartwatch with an iPhone, then you have landed on the right page. The Apple Watch provides a fantastic user experience, but if you can't afford it (or just don't want one), you can use an Android Wear smartwatch instead. In this guide we take a look at how to set up your Android Wear watch with your iPhone and explain the benefits and drawbacks
How to use Android Wear with iPhone: Setup
To start off, you'll need an iPhone 5 or newer that's running on iOS 8.2 or later in order for it to be compatible with your Android Wear device. (Read next: How to update to iOS 9 / iOS 8 vs iOS 9 comparison review.)
Once you've got your hardware ready, it's time to switch it all on and start working your magic on the software. In order to synchronise your iPhone with your Android Wear watch you will need to download the Android Wear app through the App Store. Once it's installed, open the app and start setting up your watch; in our case we had the Moto 360 2 that's running on Android 5.1.1. The installation couldn't be any simpler and is very straightforward.
That's it - you're good to go. For additional settings and configurations, go into the app on your iPhone, tap the small cog and edit the settings you wish to change. You'll also be able to change the watch's interface seamlessly via your iPhone.
