How to find out if your phone is compatible with Android Wear

Android Wear Compatibility Checker

Android Wear was one of several highlights from Google’s I/O 2014 keynote earlier this week, as the company showed us that it wants to be everywhere, not just on smartphones, tablets and computers. Three new devices were shown off during the event — one of which was absolutely gorgeous, while the other two were decidedly “meh” — along with all of the nifty functionality we can look forward to as Wear devices begin hitting the market.

For early adopters, of course, there is really only one question that matters right now: Is your smartphone compatible with Android Wear devices?

Thankfully, Google has put together an extremely simple tool that takes mere seconds to tell you whether or not your handset is compatible with Wear smartwatches like the Moto 360. All you’ll need is an Android device — Wear watches are not currently compatible with iOS, Windows Phone or BlackBerry handsets — and a web browser. Then visit http://g.co/WearCheck on your phone and you’ll be informed right away if your device is compatible.
