    Mac died after almost 20 years. Got a new Apple MBP M1Pro. Super happy with the SwiftUI iWatch dev but can not find a WearOS image? Super confused ... how are people testing WearOS on M1? We can use https://developer.samsung.com/remote-test-lab or buy a device but it would be nice to run the emulator ... no? HELP 🙏🏽

    I bought a device after years using the emulator. Fossil has pretty cheap ones that are good enough for development. https://www.fossil.com/en-us/smartwatches/generations/gen-5e/

    We are working on an Wear OS Emulator for M1 - we are blocked on some other Android components getting an M1 build but will keep pushing on this - there is a tracking bug at https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/208843522

    Had an old LG Urbane API level 25 and it is working fine but loads super slow. Any suggestions on running Wear Compose on API 25 ... would rather not spend $180 on a Fossil 🤷‍♀️🏾

    I haven't tried that model, but in my experience setting minifyEnabled=true and shrinkResources=true makes a big difference to APK size and speeds up loading times. You could also try using previews within Android Studio - Interactive Mode now works for SwipeDismissableNavHost, which has really improved the testability with previews.
