6 things Android Wear smartwatches can do that the Apple Watch can’t


1. Custom watch faces
2. Always-on apps (soon)
3. Works over any Wi-Fi network
4. Hand-drawn emoji
5. Wrist-gesture controls
6. Pattern lock screen

Each wearable platform has its own strengths and weaknesses. Obviously, if you’re already deeply invested into the iPhone ecosystem, the Apple Watch is the way to go. And if you’re an Android user, Android Wear makes sense. Neither is compatible with one another (although there’s a rumor that Google is working on an Android Wear app for iOS).

With the new Android Wear 5.1.1 Wear update rolling out to smartwatches, it’s clear the Apple Watch will have some catching up to do to reach feature parity with Android Wear’s year head start.
