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 Wear OS device can actually be fun. There have been a lot of updates to the platform over the last year. Thus, we only include games that get updates through those updates to ensure compatibility with as many devices as possible. That list is surprisingly short, but if you can get 2048 Android Wear edition working on yours, that’s a really fun little arcade game for your wrist.

Invaders 2 is one of the newer Wear OS games. This one is basically a watch version of Space Invaders. It features very simple controls. You just tap the ship to move it and then also tap to fire.

Ingress

Niantic promised Wear OS support for Pokemon Go. However, Ingress is a lot better of a game for Wear OS owners. For those who have never played, Ingress is a live multiplayer game where you must travel (literally) to various destinations around your city to hack and maintain portals. 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 without carrying your phone around.
