Next you’ll open up your Android wear app on your phone and select the menu button in the top right.

You will see an option that says “Take wearable screenshot“.

Once you select this, your phone will show you a notification that the screenshot has finished. To transfer the screenshot to your phone, tap the notification and share the screenshot with dropbox or something like that.

If you have a watch with a square face, your screenshots will be standard 1:1 images. If you have a watch with a circle face, the screenshot will appear with black rounded corners.
