Yes, you have to install a iOS sync app called Android wear app which is available in apple store to use your android smartwatches to sync with your iPhones, iPhone5 and newer.Once connected you’ll receive notifications from all your iPhone apps, right on your wrist, as well as timely information from Google Now (like traffic alerts, weather and flight status). You can also use the Android Wear app to configure your wearable device, including which notifications appear on your watch.
The first smartwatch supporting iOS will be LG Watch Urbane which will be followed by other smartwatches by Huawei, Motorola etc. Urbane is the first in the line and it has a sophisticated look attached to it. It has a stainless steel body and has 1.3 inch round display. It comes out to be quite a competition to apple watch as Urbane is much cheaper.
