DW1550 & Apple Watch

Searched high and low on this forum and google in general and there is not much information out there.

 

Anyway my E7440 High Sierra 10.13.2 does not want to communicate with my new Apple Watch (wifey bought them today)

 

Wi-Fi / Bluetooth combo is the DW1550 1/2 PCIe card.

everything else seems to be working..

Handoff/airdrop..

 

Maybe the 1550 is not compatible with Apple Watch ???

i have never heard of anyone getting it working but it does not mean it is not possible. here is apples guide

https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT206995and here are apples requirements   https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204689you would probably have to get as many of those requirements resolved. including maybe smbios model to match requirements. you would also have to find out what spec BT apple needs for it to work and see if the DW1550 BT has that spec.

DW1550 supports Bluetooth 2.1 EDR, Bluetooth 3.0 HS, Bluetooth 4.0 LE.

Hi Bronxteck,

 

I can confirm that all requirements are met. the DW1550 supports Bluetooth 4.0 LE. the OS believes Auto Unlock is supported it offers the Unlock this Mac with Apple watch option in privacy.. but when clicking on it it will not find the apple watch.. (it actually shows both mine and the wife's apple watches (as all apple devices are under my iCloud account) )

 

since there is a lack of information on the various hackintosh forums (some have got it working by using a wi-fi card from an actual mac) there is also a large amount of people who have been unable to get it working with genuine apple hardware, so may just be a gimicky thing that does not work 100% right even with genuine Macs.   Sure would be nice though.
