    Hello, can I use my watch button to open an app. Like if I tap it twice it will open 'Todoist' for example so I can quickly add reminders.

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately there's no way for apps to monitor that button, sorry!

    The new Casio WSD-F10 wear watch has a separate "app" button that does this. But its the Casio code the intercepts it, not Android Wear.

    And if you don't mind getting your hands dirty, you can always create watch faces (with Watchmaker Premium) that has a hot spot that can run a Tasker task on the phone, which can almost do anything, including opening an app on the watch (via AutoWear, naturally!)
