The new Apple iPhone 7 is refusing to play nice with Android Wear devices, Google has confirmed.
In a post on the Google product forums, the Android Wear team said it has reported a “serious pairing issue” when it comes to some Android Wear watches.
The affected watches include the Tag Heuer Connected, Moto 360 v2, Asus ZenWatch, the Michael Kors Access watch and those made by Fossil.
The issue is affecting only those users attempting to pair with an iPhone 7, with all previous iPhone versions unaffected.
“Google has reported the issue to Apple, and the Android Wear team is actively working to fix this as soon as possible,” wrote Ernest of the Android Wear team.
With the Apple Watch Series 2 now on the shelves, we can’t imagine Apple frantically racing to clear up this issue – but we’ll keep you posted.
Android Wear compatibility with iOS was announced at the end of August 2015, and supports devices running iOS 8.2 and up. Features are limited compared to what you can do with an Android smartphone pairing, as you’d expect.
