Hack puts iPhone notifications on an Android Wear watch

An iPhone text notification on a Moto 360

Android Wear isn’t going to officially support iOS devices any time soon, but that doesn’t mean that the two platforms can never see eye-to-eye.

Developer Mohammad Abu-Garbeyyeh has tweaked Android Wear to make it display an iPhone’s notifications using the same ANCS technology as Pebble’s smartwatches.

While the creator hasn’t revealed every nuance of how this modification works, he claims that you don’t need to jailbreak iOS or get root access on Android Wear in order to pull this off — apart from the notification hack, your devices could behave normally.

Not that you’d necessarily want to snag a Moto 360 or LG Watch Urbane just to try this project, at least not in its current form.

Even if the code were readily available (it isn’t), you still wouldn’t get Google Now or app support. This is more to show what’s possible, not what makes sense.
