Armenian dialects cannot be simply subsumed under Eastern and Western.
Please do some more research. Start with the Ethnologue article.

Mostly "Western" Armenian is "diaspora". Language differences have to do
with the dates of the split of the communities. You might as well call US
English "Western English".
