So, the short answer is no. Apple Watches do not pair with Android phones. They only work with iPhones. You need to have the Watch app installed on your Apple device – and there is no version of this for Android. You may think that your Apple Watch could pair with your Android device as both use Bluetooth, but without this app, it simply will not pair.

Why doesn’t Apple Watch work with Android?

If you own an Apple Watch, iPhone or Android phone, you can use your Apple Watch with your iPhone at home, while using your Android phone as your primary phone. You can also use an LTE Apple Watch to access standalone apps on the watch too if you’d like. But you still need to have an iPhone so that you can actually track your watch and use its features. 

The plus side is that there are plenty of different Android-based smartwatches that do talk to Android phones easily. So hopefully going with one of those would help you out in this situation.
