  • There’s hope that the Pixel Watch could support iPhone connections.
  • The Montblanc Summit 3 is powered by Wear OS 3, like the Pixel Watch, and it supports the iPhone.
  • Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4 likely could connect to iPhones, but Samsung probably disabled this feature.

Wear OS 3 is the most recent version of Google’s wearable operating system. However, it only officially appears on one device: the Galaxy Watch 4. Other watches will get the update to Wear OS 3 eventually, but that hasn’t happened yet.

One of the interesting things about the Galaxy Watch 4 is that it’s Android-only. Other Wear OS watches — such as the popular Fossil Gen 6 — run on Wear OS and support iPhone connections. At first, we figured this Android-only exclusivity was due to Wear OS 3 itself, but it appears that’s not the case.
