    Apple's new smartwatch defines the newest age of wearables and smartwatches that we are just entering. Like the LG G Watch R and Motorola Moto 360 before it, the new Apple Watch looks to port the mobile technology straight to your wrist. One tap at a time.

    When the new Apple Watch was finally unveiled after a host of leaks, rumors and speculations, it did bring in a shred of doubt over the devices that it would eventually support. While it was already certain that the new wearable would anyway support both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, there was no idea on other such compatible devices.

    However, it was Apple who actually took the lid off the query, maybe after understanding the growing unrest among those present at the event. The company revealed (and finally made a lot of people happy) that the new Watch would support devices that are iPhone 5 onwards.

    This means apart from the recently unveiled iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the Apple Watch will also support iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and even the iPhone 5 model running iOS 8. And although a lot of iPhone users will be dissapointed, but although the previously released iPhone 4s does support the iOS 8, it won't support the Apple Watch.
