Publish your SmartWatch 2 app

This project is no longer being supported and will not get any further updates.

After you’ve tested your SmartWatch 2 app and have readied it for publishing on Google Play, you’ll want to make sure that your app shows up when end users are searching for compatible apps through Smart Connect (technically from the host application, but in the Smart Connection user interface). From here, users can find all compatible apps filtered from Google Play.

For SmartWatch 2 apps:
To make your SmartWatch 2 app show up in the pre-defined Google Play –search, just make sure the Google Play description for your app includes the following string (we recommend at the bottom, on its own line):

Smart Connect extension for SmartWatch 2

For original SmartWatch and SmartWatch 2 apps:
If your app is also compatible with the original SmartWatch, for example, your app can run using version 1.0 of the Smart Extension APIs, your Google Play description should contain the phrase LiveWare™ extension for SmartWatch, as well as Smart Connect extension for SmartWatch, to ensure that your Smart Extension apps are found by the original SmartWatch and SmartWatch 2.
