You can take Android wear screenshot very easily but you need to know some tricks for it. Sadly there is no convenient trick to capture screenshot on Android wear we found. Instead, in order to get the task, you need to rely on ADB. For this trick you need to an Android watch with ADB debugging enabled and also required a Personal computer with ADB installed.



For a terminal follow the below command to take the screen shot, most you are not sure whether this trick is success for all the Android Device. We tested this trick on LG G but this trick might work on all Android wear devices.

                                   adb shell screencap -p /sdcard/DCIM/screenshots/screenshot1.png

It is possible to change the name of the screenshot every time, if you do not do this, device will overwrite the screenshot without warning. If you attached more than one device you need to use the -s flag to tell adb that which device should be used for taking screenshot. And once you are done collecting screens, you need to use adb pull to copy them over to your computer.
 adb pull /sdcard/DCIM/screenshots/screenshot1.png
                                             -or, to copy all of them at once-
                                               adb pull /sdcard/DCIM/screenshots/

That’s it this is the trick to take screen shot of Android Wear. As I mentioned earlier we tried this trick on LG G watch.
