Earlier this month, Google started rolling out the Android Lollipop update for all Android Wear. The update introduced many new features and advancements, such as Theater mode, an official API for custom watch faces, and much more.
Before Android Wear 5.0, taking screenshots on any Android Wear running smart watch needed users to connect the watch to their PC or Laptop and then use different ADB commands to take and pull the screenshot from the Wear device. With the newest release of Android Wear though, Google has built the process extremely simple and does not require them to connect the device to a Computer.
Before you proceed further, make sure that you’re running the latest version of the Android Wear associate on your device. Also, make sure that your Android Wear smartwatch is connected to the device.
Steps to take screenshots on Android Wear 5.0.1:
Step No 1:- Now, proceed to Settings > About Phone on your Android device and tap on ‘Build number’ seven times to enable Developer Options.
Step No 2:- Open the Android Wear app on your smartphone and tap the 3 dot overflow menu button on the top right. Now select the ‘Take wearable screenshot’ option. A request will then be sent to your Android smartwatch for taking a screenshot.
Step No 3:- You will then receive a notification that will say ‘Wearable screenshot done.’ For some strange cause, Google does not provide an option to save the screenshots on your Android wear device. So you’ll have to directly upload it on Dropbox, Google drive or other services. Just tap the notification, select your required option and you will be done.
