Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months.

Preview Any Boot Animation On Your PC
Changing boot animations is almost as fun as changing your themes, icons, and everything that you can change on your device. The only problem is that unlike changing minor things on your device, changing a boot animation requires you to go through a few extra steps like adb or flashing a zip file, but what if you don’t like it? You will need to flash either back to stock rom or change to a different boot animation. And don’t even get me started if you are a boot animation maker as you will likely be spending countless hours trying out your creations in your own devices until they are acceptable or perfect. To help everyone out, XDA member despotovski01 has created an app along with a guide that will allow you to try your boot animations in your PC. The app was made by the dev himself and the guide is easy enough to follow.
So, whether you are a boot animation creator or a really undecided end user, take this out for a spin and see if you like not wasting time flashing possible mistakes on your device. Please leave some feedback if you liked this.
Making a boot animation can be a hard job. Sometimes you’ll need to preview your boot animations, but applying them on the phone can take you some time. For that reason, I’ve made a tutorial that will show you how to preview your boot animations on your computer without applying them on the phone. So, let’s get started!
You can find more information in the guide thread.
