We tend to think of the Sony LiveView smartwatch as something made for Android. And truth be told, the watch is officially only available with support for Android smartphones. That said, it looks like that may be changing for some. We recently discovered this video being shared on Twitter, it comes from @AriX and it shows the iPhone being paired with the watch. While fascinating and interesting to see, there are some catches. First, the current functionality is limited. Of course, that will likely change by the time this makes it past the still-in-development and beta stage. Which brings us to the next, once available this will end up being released by way of Cydia. Nothing surprising on that front as we could not imagine this making it past Apple, but still a decision that will keep many from using it. Anyway, the video is a bit over 3 minutes in length and shows off some of what is currently supported and some of what will be supported. Bottom line here, if you are rocking an iPhone and are interested in having that paired with a smartwatch, this may be a viable option in the future.
