Android Wear apps can use many of the same controls already in use for regular Android apps, including Button, TextView, and image drawables. Layout controls including ScrollView, LinearLayout, and RelativateLayout can also be used.

This page links to the Android-Wear-specific controls from the wearable UI library available in Xamarin projects via the Wearable Support NuGet package. These controls include the following:

  • GridViewPager – Create a two-dimensional navigation interface where the user scrolls down then across to make a selection (for more information, see GridViewPager):

Other important controls for Wear apps include:

Xamarin Workbook

If it's not already installed, install the Xamarin Workbooks app first. The workbook file should download automatically, but if it doesn't, just click to start the workbook download manually.
