    I have the iWatch but have not been able to use it because I have an iPhone 4 and it seems that the iPhone 4 cannot be updated past IOS 7....

    I think I need at least IOS 8.2 in order to pair my iWatch and phone. Does anyone know if there is a way around this so I can begin to use my iWatch? I am desperate to start using it!

    No, you will need to upgrade your iPhone to use the Watch. It never was an "iWatch".

    Ah yes, I beg your pardon, very true.

    I feared there would be no other way than to upgrade. It is frustrating not being able to use my Apple Watch but I suppose it makes sense.

    I know, I know! I need a job and money is very tight right now. Believe me I want to upgrade!

    I have a new Apple Watch that I've been unable to even use since Christmas!
