I know, it may sound fairly niche, but hear me out. Recently, there’s been a lot of buzz about using Android Wear devices with the iPhone, and that’s the reason why I started exploring this topic to begin with.
As it turns out, when you buy an Android Wear device, you need an Android device to “activate” the smartwatch (go figure). Since I don’t currently own an Android phone, my LG G Watch was stuck at the pairing screen.
Yes, there are more “in-depth” ways to go about getting passed this screen, but not everyone is up to that task. With this in mind, I’ve created a video tutorial that shows you how to run an Android virtual machine on your Mac with Parallels, and how to then pair an Android Wear device with the virtual machine.
