Android also announced wearable support for the iPhones but again the user experience for an Android wear with iPhone is not going to be as smooth as the Apple watch. Other fitness bands like the Fitbit and pebble time may not come close to the Apple watch either in design or functionality due to restrictions from the Apple iOS.
