    Anyone else annoyed that yesterdays NEST announcement and todays app update did not include:

    a) Apple Watch support
    b) Homekit support

    Come on Google play nice with Apple.

    You hit the nail on the head. Its a company owned by Google... they aren't in a rush to develop compatibility for a competitors home automation/integration platform.

    Buy the THESSA app. It originally was to add a nest widget to IOS, but they have an Apple watch app too.

    I use the Drip app to get my dropcam feed on the Apple Watch. I enabled the glances function and I can quickly view the camera feed whenever I want. It did cost a little more than I wanted to spend, but we use our dropcam as a baby monitor and having the feed accessible on my watch has been invaluable.

    I got 4 Nest thermostats and it does not surprise me that Google did not include support.

    I would have never bought the Nest thermostats if Google owned them at that time.

    I have stopped purchasing all Nest products until they show me they still have a commitment to the Apple ecosystem. There aren't really any viable competitors on the market except maybe Ecobee, so I am not replacing anything, but I am likely to steer away from Nest in the future.

    Look at the Ecobee3. Great thermostat and besides the app the Windows version is outstanding.

    Nest doesn't even have an app for Google Watches. No way they're gonna have a watchOS app before that. :/
