On that note, if you're incredibly enterprising and you have a family member with another iPhone (or an older iPhone yourself), you can swap your SIM into that iPhone and set up a watch that way, then put the SIM back into your Android device and use it. You'll kill your Apple Watch's battery and it's not recommended, … [Read more...] about Can you use an Apple Watch with your Android phone?
