Watch isn`t only a necessary thing, but also a stylish accessory. Earlier, with the help of a clock, you could find out the time and several additional parameters. Today they are practically small smartphones on the hand. Buying a «smart» clock many fall in love with them at once, and many do not get used to their specifics. Before buying a gadget, you should hold it in your hand and learn more about their capabilities.

Apple Watch is a stylish accessory. It has many modifications: there are different sizes of screens, a lot of straps and various materials of the cases. All combinations have their price, which allows you to choose not only the design you like, but also the price that will suit you.

To date, wearable electronics tends to decrease in size, while, of course, losing in power, but winning in: mobility; convenience. Once the electronic clock with the backlight of time and the electronic dial seemed to be a breakthrough, and today almost a smartphone on the wrist is no longer perceived as something supernatural.

Actually, the consumer dictates the conditions, and the developers are on the go, so the world is represented by many different models of smart watches from the most famous companies. Wearable electronics from Apple and Google is developed exclusively for consumers using smartphones from these companies, but the question is whether Apple Watch to attach to Android no one gave a clear answer. Up to this day.

It can be safely stated that the Android Wear clock with the iWatch device is made possible by third-party developers.

Connect the device

The platform Android Wear has a large number of smart watches from competitor’s iWatch, but all of them, one way or another, are different, and the guarantee for pairing can be given to such models as: Moto 360; Sony Smart Watch 3. But in any case, the loss of some functions of the clock, for example, «through time», is inevitable. But this doesn`t prohibit talking about whether Apple Watch is working with Android and what steps need to be taken to connect them.

    Install the BLE Utility program on your smart watch. Universal assistant to simulate any device from Apple. Allows you to connect to it via Bluetooth and does not require additional data. For now, we don’t touch the program anymore and move on.
    Now in Aerlink there will be a notification about the detection of a new device. If this does not happen, then restart the application. When the message appears, just click on it, after which Apple Watch will notify the user about the successful connection.
