I got invested in smartwatches and bought a used LG G Watch R for 50 EUR. Tried Wear 2.0 and my head started spinning when I saw how much of google it needed to be installed on my Oneplus 3 (don’t know what else I expected).
Because of this I sideloaded AsteroidOS and it’s super nice. Snappy as hell. The only feature I miss is the compass because sensors aren’t supported.
But now this happened: https://asteroidos.org/install/
As of two days ago they added support for the MTK6580 CPU. That means around 20 watches got supported with everything working but the heart rate sensor for now.
One more addition is the Ticwatch but bluethoot is not working the same as on the Zenwatch 3 and is thus useless.
On Gearbest there are some great looking ones all around 100$. Personally the KW99 looks awesome. I am thinking of getting one and selling the G Watch R.
