    I’m not an expert but how long has other apple devices been supported in real time. example Iphone 4 is no longer supported on ios 8??

    IPod
    iPhone
    iPad
    ATV
    Mac’s in general
    same in the IOS

    Will it be different for :apple: Watch, will it have support longer than the average of 4-5 years.
    How long will YOUR expensive :apple: Watch be able to work with the latest iphone-7-8-9 etc

    The following devices are compatible with iOS 8:
    • iPhone 4S
    • iPhone 5
    • iPhone 5C
    • iPhone 5S
    • iPod touch 5th generation
    • iPad 2
    • iPad with Retina Display

    Not really, the :apple:Watch's wOS is 100% dependent on the iOS Companion App. Any wOS update MUST go through the iOS Companion App.

    iOS9 & 10 are all but definites. 11 is likely too I expect, but horribly gimped and slow by that stage most likely.

    1st iPod works in the latest version of iTunes, so I think the compatibilities of the companion app isn't a problem.

    The OP is asking about how long will it be supported. Not just will it work.;)

    Yeah that's what I was saying.
    You can use the first iPod on the latest Mac, so you can use your Watch with your last iPhone for a very long time.
