Android Emulator for Google Watch

This section provides a tutorial example on how to create and run an Android Emulator for Google watches.

I also create an Android Emulator for a smart watch with the following parameters on the Create new AVD screen:

Name: vWatch
Device: Android Wear Round (320 x 320:hdpi)
Target: Android 5.1.1 - API Level 22
CPU/ABI: Android Wear ARM (armeabi-v7a)
   [x] Hardware keyboard present
Skin: AndroidWearRound
Front Camera: None
Back Camera: None
Memory Options:
   RAM: 512, VM Heap: 32
Internal Storage: 200 MiB
SD Card/Size: 32 MiB

Then I launched the vWatch AVD with "Scale display to real size" turned on. After about 10 minutes, my smart watch simulator was running on my Windows system.

After clicking the power icon and waiting for another 5 minutes, my vWatch is fully working.

To see the list of apps, I had to press and hold down the power icon.
