  1. Thank you so much for the clear, and concise response to the functionality of Android Wear on iOS. I take calls and reply to text messages ALL DAY on my Apple Watch so if those functions do not work, looks like I will be purchasing an Apple Watch series 3 after all.

  2. Thanks for this video! Have you noticed any limitation in the apps available in the Play Store as well?

    I have an iPhone 8 and just got a Fossil Q Venture as a gift. I was considering changing it for a Michael Kors Bradshaw as the lack of features (particularly the lack of built in speakers) was frustrating me. But as I was doing my research, I noticed a lot of what people could do with their Fossil Q Ventures in reviews did not work with mine no matter what I did and I was worried that no matter which watch I had, it’d still be limited if it’s Android Wear on an Apple device.

    Like I haven’t been able to connect the Message app to text from my phone, which makes sense because iMessage, but I noticed other people have been able to download a Facebook Messenger app to their Q Ventures whereas when I search on mine, it doesn’t even show up as an option in the Play Store.

  3. I have the fossil get 3 explorist with my iPhone 7 plus works great . Its the stainless steel version. also my hearing aids work off the iOS where i can receive calls as well through my hearing aids on the bluetooth connection. Fossil said it wouldn't work but it does.

  4. I recently purchased a gen 3 Fossil q venture watch. I was hoping it would work with my iPhone 7, and for the most part it has. The only issue I’ve run into is the fact that when I receive text messages, I get the notification on my watch but I can’t figure out how to respond. I was wondering if this is a feature I just miss out on with an iPhone or if there is a set-up step I am missing. If I just can’t reply to texts on the watch with iOS, is there a third party app you think/would recommend that would operate the same as having a Fossil with Android. Thanks so much, and Happy Holidays!
