The Ticwatch doesn't run Android Wear at all. It runs a custom ROM of the normal Android used on phones.

No, the ROM is based on android, not AW. That is, the same android that runs on your phone and your tablet. Sure, it's been modified a lot, but at it's core it's not really AW. That's one of the reasons not all AW apps work properly on it.

No need for android wear, if we could get Google Play services to work on the watch. With the 1024 function you can load most apps on the watch.

Google Maps, Google Keep, Google Now, Gmail, Allo, Google Agenda and Drive is what I want :D. I don't want full apps running on the watch but a companion that supports those apps running on the phone. Otherwise its pointless on having a smartwatch..

For example: Not the full Google maps app running on the T2 but live notifications with an arrow saying 'go left, go right' etc. etc.

The only thing needed to make these work is google play services, as this is based on a Android rom, the play services only need to be enabled.
Would be nice indeed to see this coming to the watch
