    Unlock with Watch will not work with the 802.11n version, because the required capability (time of flight) introduced with 802.11ac devices. Thats why unlock with Watch requires a Mac from 2013.

    I don't know which any other handoff/continuity things that are requires the newer standard.

    Good information thanks, I can live without watch unlock, I don’t have one atm anyway.
    Hey Czo, do you know if A BCM94360CSAX WiFi Card 802.11ac would work with Apple Watch unlock if I get one in the future?

    Currently i have a 4360 in my iMac, but i can't say yes. In last year, when i am upgraded to a Series 3 watch from a Series 2, i found watch unlock can't be enabled on my iMac because i am still running Sierra on it. So on Sierra, unlock with Watch worked fine with a Series 0 (original) Watch and Series 2 Watch, on Series 3 High Sierra will be required, so i think Series 4 will require Mohave on Mac side. I am still waiting for my Series 4 watch, so i can not check it yet.
