I've got an Android wear device.(the LG G Watch) And I installed some APK apps via ADB. How can I install a keyboard on Android Wear that I can use in apps I installed with ADB? I tried plugging in a keyboard to the Android Wear but it didn't help. Thanks!

  • AFAIK there's a version of Minuum keyboard for wear – if you want a keyboard directly on the device. You can see it in action on Youtube (second half of it) – or check the Minuum Youtube channel.

  • Ah – OK, I couldn't check (have no Wear device). Sorry to hear.

I found the solution. I can send text input to my Android Wear device this way:

  1. adb shell
  2. input text <your_text>

Hope it will help someone else!
