I've been trying to create a Wear AVD without luck. I first tried to create one for Platform 28. I got an error message that I needed the 64 bit version for API 28+. I couldn't see that available for download in the SDK manager. Then I downloaded the Platform 26 version of Android Wear with the SDK manager. Now it gives me the error message "Device definition not found: Wear Square." I tried the circular too, and got the same message. What am I missing?

I checked the source code of SDK MANAGER 3.32
The problem seems to be in the screen.DDName that is created by the AVD MANAGER.
AVD MANAGER still create wear devices naming them
Android Wear Round
Android Wear Square
but with latest SDK they seems should be
Wear OS Round
Wear OS Square
If Erel can confirm this, and eventualy modify the next SDK MANAGER version, would be great.
