Wear Check

One of the many things Google talked about yesterday was Android Wear. They gave us a demo of the software, and announced two smartwatches that can be purchased right now. One thing that they didn’t talk a lot about is what devices are compatible with Android Wear. Luckily there is a very simple way to check if your phone will work with a Wear device.

  1. Go to g.co/WearCheck on your Android device
  2. Read the results.

The site will detect your phone and let you know if it’s compatible. If you get the nice big green check marks, like on the Nexus 5 above, you are good to go. Here’s a little cheat if you don’t feel like checking a website: Android Wear only works with devices running Android 4.3 or higher. Most newer devices will be fine, but if your phone is a little on the older end it may not. iPhones are also not compatible.

So, did your phone make the cut? Are you getting an Android Wear device?
