Android Wear/Wear OS/Tizen extended screen for Locus Map in mobile or tablet. You can control comfortably the most frequently used features by it:
There is no list of officially tested or supported watch for the add-on. However, Locus Map Watch should be compatible with all watches running Android Wear 1.x/2.x/Wear OS and watches by Samsung. Since you probably plan to use the watch for outdoor and/or fitness activities it might recommended to aim for the watch having its own GPS module, heart rate sensor or other hardware features you might find useful for those activities and which might be used in future versions of Locus Map Watch to extend the core functionality. Still we are committed to continue to support all the watches with Android Wear/Wear OS/Tizen without any requirements on hardware features.
Please just look at the manufacturer's specification and search for Android Wear/Wear OS in the product description. If the watch is running any version of Android Wear/Wear OS then the add-on should work without any problems.
Please beware that some watches can actually run normal Android OS which is quite different from Android Wear operating system and is not compatible with the add-on.
In the case of Samsung watches, this add-on is compatible with all versions of Gear S2, S3, Galaxy Watch and Watch Active 2 (proved by users' testing).
Install the add-on from Galaxy Apps in your watch according to Locus Map app version in your mobile phone:
If you have problems connecting your Locus map Pro Watch add-on to your Locus Map Pro on your phone please go to your system settings > Applications > Samsung Accessory Services and delete its data.
Unfortunately Locus Map Watch is only compatible with Android Wear/Wear OS devices. Running the add-on on such watch is not possible and by installing Locus Map Watch on the watch you are actually installing the phone counterpart of the add-on.
You should be able to install normal Locus Map Free/Pro application to your watch but its usability might be severely limited with the round screen. There is no support for round UI in Locus Map and it is not planned in the future.
Stand-alone function is not possible at the moment. If you would like this feature please vote for this idea at Locus helpdesk >> and possibly describe what specific function you would use in a stand-alone mode.
All add-ons need to be connected to Locus Map. Switch the connection ON in Locus settings > Miscellaneous > Connect with add-ons.
