Android wear watches running version older than 1.3 pre-loaded won’t be using this update.
Google’s spokesperson said about this update saying ““We wanted to make sure that iOS users would have a great experience with Android Wear out of the box. We’ve worked with manufacturers to ensure that the newest watches work really well with modern iPhones, but last year’s watches aren’t technically supported.”
This also has been said by the company that “Android watches need to be running the latest Android Wear release ouf of the box in order to streamlined setup pairing an iOS phone and Android watch.
All though this might be a disappointment for many iOS user but on the other hand its also a good news for the lots of users news version users so this may not be a that much big deal as it seems to be.
After pairing your watch with your iPhone the app would be compatible with the iPhone 5 and all the newer versions.
