Right from the app page on playstore:
Note 3: This watchface can be installed on your phone but will not show up in your app drawer. It is supported to simplify installation on your watch.
Did you try installing directly to the watch then switching to the face from the watch itself?

Kindly advise, Which app did u use to play music offline on your watch, I just got a cheaper pair of wireless dudios ace for playing music from my phone but it would be great to do from the watch only offline

i forgot the adb commands u gotta do..sideload apks and sideload the mp3s into the watch i think, otherwise u'd have to use a spotifiy clone app and have wifi on/data on your phone connected to the watch for gym music

watch speaker is too tinny and tiny and its on the bottom of watch so it muffles the sound, u can't hear chit! course thats why u got the bt dudios lol

Totally agree mikka2017 thanks for tips, at the moment I use spotify so it works for biking to work and walks but I was definitely considering the gym as I'm carrying the "keg" instead of a "six pack abs" ha ha

Did you factory reset the watch? you can't re-pair the watch if it still has an existing account on it.

I use google play music. I created a playlist and i accessed GPM from my watch to download the playlist. The only downside is you only have a finite playlist so it's not as handy as spotify but I doubt offline spotify would ever make it to wearOS.

Give this a try: little dated but free and still works: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... .wearmedia
Or a more feature-rich option for a $1: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... e.navmusic

ah didn't know its that hassle to repair another phone with it! i don't use my nexus 6 anymore so i gotta do it
if i factory reset, do i have to reinstall all the updates again? that was painfully slowAF!

The watch extends the phone functionality, whenever the paired phone goes the watch needs to be reset.

The major updates remain (since these can't be rolled back) the minor ones (like latest wearOS) will be automatically redownloaded.

Yes tried both methods, maybe one day it'll show up. Tiles just showed up in my watch. Maybe because I'm noton Wi-Fi who knows.

Btw, b/w toggle on off battery save mode and no BT connection, able to squeeze 2 days straight from my watch.

I've been looking for another one also. We've been spoiled by this watch/price.
