Hello, i see here, that many people have problems to install there wear app to his watches.
I list the steps that are needed so that you can quickly look up when you need it.

Phone:
-install the "Google Wear" App for Android
-connect your watch with the app
-go to "Advance Settings"
-enable "Debugging over Bluetooth"

Wear:
-go to Settings -> System -> Info -> click 10 times on "Build Number"
-after that you are a Developer
-go to Settings -> Developer Options -> enable "ADB-Debungging" and "Debugging over Blutetooth"

Now Compile your App in Release mode.

-open a CMD (Command Promt)
Type this on it:
B4X:
adb forward tcp:4444 localabstract:/adb-hub
B4X:
adb connect 127.0.0.1:4444
Now you can See on the "Google Wear" App under "Debugging over Bluetooth"
Host: connected
Target: connected

So, now we can install the App with:
B4X:
adb -e install demo.apk
and now you have install the App on your android wear device.

Have Fun,
Greetings

Hi Alexander,

everthing worked fine but I cannot find "Debugging over Bluetooth" In the "Advance Settings"of Wear OS

After installation the app on smart watch tries to update Wear OS and hangs up.

Do have an idea how to fix?

Hi,
could find the problem. The google play services app on smart watch was not updated ( version 8.X.X).
I could update to version 17.X.X than everthink worked perfect.
