Android Wear smartwatches are now compatible with iOS. Well, some of them are. And all the ones coming in the future will be. Because watches are where it's at.

According to Wired all you need to do to make your Android Wear watch compatible with iOS is download an app.

Then the thing on your wrist and the thing in your pocket will have nice chats and you'll be able to check your messages with slightly less movement.

Right now only one smartwatch, the terribly named LG Watch Urbane, is officially supported, but apparently the Moto 360 also works.

Mark Brown told me the Moto 360 was awful though, so that's something to consider.

Watch(!?!) this space

You don't get all the functionality of the Apple Watch, mind. You get iOS notifications, notifications from some Google apps, track your fitness with Google Fitness, voice search with Google Now, and some other bits and bobs.

The functionality is included in one app, so you don't have to mess around downloading loads of bits.

Probably best just to get an Apple Watch if you're that bothered, or use an Android blower with your Android wrist bangle.
