Well they’re miles ahead of android wear ehem, sorry “WearOS” and Tizen wearables, I’d say the only thing they’re behind in is watch face customisation.

Expect him to comeback with the same old argument, sales numbers.

Wear OS and Tizen OS can do a lot more from a programming perspective than any Apple watch. Nevermind the watch face, Apple users still don't even have an always on watch face option. You know, like real watches or like Wear OS, and Tizen.

I haven’t seen a Android wear device in quite a while but see a Apple Watch everyday. They do need more watch faces though.

They’re behind in features, battery life, customization, infographics, and 3rd party watch faces. The best products don’t always sell the most. The watch OS fitness app, is also miles behind. Sales numbers please and thank you.

Well, from usability perspective it seems to me that they are miles.. behind. They miss a lot of features and the application flexibility which you can find on other platforms. And I'm not talking about how many they sold since this is not a buying factor for consumers.. or at least it shouldn't.

Wait. They don't even support third party watch faces yet ? How long has it been since they released the first Apple watch ?

We should have this now! The offerings are sparse
