The Apple Watch is the hottest smartwatch on the market, but Huawei hopes to turn the tables with its high-powered Android timepiece. Here are four ways the Huawei Watch outshines the Apple Watch.

4) Huawei Watch works with Android AND iPhone; Apple Watch doesn't 

Thanks to the Android Wear iOS app from Google, the Huawei Watch works with iPhones in addition to Androids. No comparable iOS app or other option exists for the Apple Watch, so it can be used only with Apple smartphones.
