Google promises more Wear devices, including upcoming watches from manufactures like Huawei and Lenovo/Motorola.

With Android Wear on iOS, you’ll get notifications from your favorite Google services like Gmail, Google Calendar and Google Now, as well as Apple’s Calendar, Google Fit, the weather, alarm, agenda, Translate and so forth. It’ll work with voice queries and you can change the watch face just as you can with the Android app.Google says, that all this works out of the box, as you don’t need to have any of these apps installed. All third party app notifications that show up on your iPhone will also show on the watch. Google is slowly rolling out on Apple’s App Store.
