User installs Minecraft Pocket Editon on an Android Wear smartwatch

Minecraft: PE Android Wear

Minecraft: Pocket Edition is quite popular with a large section of mobile users. But what if the app was ported onto a smartwatch? That’s exactly what a YouTube user named Corbin Davenport has done by sideloading the game to his Samsung Gear Live smartwatch. He has apparently used the standard ADB sideloading method to bring the game to the wearable, which can be achieved with some know-how.

Hardware is not a constraint for the Gear Live as it runs the 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 SoC and has 512MB of RAM as well which is more than adequate for the game to run. Obviously, the tiny screen real estate is not convenient to play Minecraft, so we’re afraid it will merely remain one of those curious experiments you conduct with your devices.

Davenport mentions that he simply extracted the game files from the apk file and sideloaded them to the device via ADB. If you’re familiar with this sort of a thing, make sure you give it a try.
