Android Wear Compatibility mode?

Post by mbrindam » Tue Oct 04, 2016 8:23 pm

I do not see AW Compatibility mode in the Ticwatch Global app... has this been (hopefully temporarily) suspended?

I haven't gotten my watch yet, but Try downloading the Android Wear app from the play store and see if that works.

I'm pretty sure this was removed.

Tried downloading the Android wear app but no idea what to do from there. We need documentation.

This while stated as being somewhat limited will be a big deal for this watch to gain some traction. The development in the AW realm is going to grow exponentially in the next few years as the market gets hit with hundreds of new watches, apps, ideas... It would be better to be "in" the game now from a marketing and technology standpoint. Just my 2 C with coffee.

I don't think they removed it per-se, but they did say (once they release it over OTA hopefully) that it will be somewhat limited. I hope it will be at least as functional as the Ticwatch in China, since I found a video from their Chinese website that shows a person enabling the compatibility mode and just downloading things from Google Play and using it with the Android Wear companion app.

In the meantime, you can install Android and Android Wear apps via ADB over WiFi/Bluetooth!
