best Android Wear games
Yes, there are games for Android Wear. Admittedly, they’re a little difficult to play so most of the better titles include easy controls and simple ideas, but gaming on your Android Wear device can actually be fun. Some of the games are new and some are old. Most of these should work with most watches. Here are the best Android Wear games currently available.


2048 Android Wear

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
2048 Android Wear is a wearable spin on a classic mobile game. The game requires you to combine tiles with the same number. That makes a new number. You repeat this process until you cannot go any further. It's deceptively difficult once you get in and play for a bit. The controls translate well to a watch as well. There are a few variants of this on Google Play. Thus, if this one doesn't work, we recommend trying a different one. They're all basically the same Android Wear games. This one is free with no in-app purchases or ads.

There is an opposing team that will try to do the same to you. The game is free with in-app purchases. Really, though, the charm is having a game on your watch that you can play almost anywhere.

Nougat Land

Price: Free

Nougat Land is a very simple game. It's actually just a port of the Easter egg game from Android 7.0 Nougat. That was just a riff on the popular Flappy Bird game from years ago. A little Android thing will float through the air. Your goal is to keep it in the air and also from hitting obstacles. It plays exceptionally well on Android Wear. After all, it only has one control and it's tap to jump. The game is free with no in-app purchases. There are ads, but they're not bad. This is also one of the few Android Wear games that supports Android Wear 2.0.
