- Google has previewed the Pixel Watch and it looks like the device won’t work with iPhones.
- The company’s first smartwatch will be compatible with phones running Android 8.0 or newer versions.
While Google hasn’t explicitly said the Pixel Watch wouldn’t work with Apple’s phones, it’s not very surprising if it doesn’t. The Galaxy Watch 4 features Wear OS 3 and is also not compatible with iOS. It’s the first Wear OS watch since 2015 that doesn’t bring iPhone support. Back then, Google had announced that all future Android Wear watches (that’s what the software was called back then) would support iOS.
With the Pixel Watch carrying forward the trend of not being iOS compatible, it’s possible future Wear OS 3 smartwatches also won’t come with iPhone compatibility.
