This page aims at gathering info about the currently supported platforms and porting efforts.
The Android Wear smartwatches are the most widespread and easy to support. The source code of their kernels is usually easily available and the drivers can be supported with libhybris. Those watches are the current priority of AsteroidOS.

The Samsung Gear S, S2, S2 Classic and S3 might be supported by AsteroidOS in the future but they will require more work than the other watches. Someone already got interested in the S2 port but gave up because he couldn’t find the kernel’s defconfig.
There are many Android (non-Wear) smartwatches available for a lower price. (e.g: the Omate *, Sony SW, Intex iRist, zWatch etc…) It might be more difficult to get access to the kernel’s or android tree of those devices but libhybris could also make running AsteroidOS on top of them possible.
Other low-end smartwatches using cheap Mediatek SoCs aren’t able to run a Linux kernel and can’t be supported by AsteroidOS
