This is awesome! I don't have android wear yet, but planning on getting a moto 360 soon. I have a Hero 4 Silver and was thinking this would be an extremely useful app to have on your wrist, thanks for your work, can't wait to try it out!

Thanks, please keep in mind that I have tested this app only with the Hero3 White Edition, probably you will find issues with other models .

This is just what i thought was missing for the gopro.
I will be able to test it with a moto360 and a gopro hero4 silver in a couple of days and let you know the issues.
Thanks a lot for the work you've already done.

Very Very Cool
Hey. This is a great idea and thanks for your hard work to develop it. I tried to get the app to work but I can only seem to view the images saved to my GoPro and cant operate any of the the features which you described.

I have my Note 4 connected to my GoPro Hero 3+ via wifi and my Samsung Wear Live connected to my Note 4 via Bluetooth. I cant seem to be able to connect to my GoPro with your app. Any suggestions?? Thx much.

If you are able to see in your watch the images in your GoPro then that means that the connection between the GoPro and the phone and between the phone and the watch is working good. What do you see in your watch when trying to operate the camera?

I have released a new version with an option to send camera info and logs that will help me to understand the cause of issues like this. Please install the new version, connect your phone to the GoPro wifi network, open the App on the phone, selected the menu item "Send Log" and please send me that information with your favorite email app, you will be able to review the information that will be send or add anything you want.

I can not connect my gopro hero 4 Silver to the App. The Problem is that the App is Searching for a Connection (screenshot 1) and after ~ 5 seconds, the app will close. If i connect Via Wifi to my gopro (Screenshot 2) the App will closes directly.

Sorry for my bad english

It's working.
Thanks for the response. I went back and checked all of the settings and noticed that I had entered the wrong password for the Gopro Wifi Settings. User error of course. Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks again for cool app.

As I can see in screenshot 1, you haven't configured the WiFi settings, you need to set the "WiFi SSID" field with the name of your GoPro Wifi and "WiFi Password" with the WiFi password of your GoPro.

Also you can connect the phone to the GoPro WiFi and open the app, it will try to set the settings automatically for you.
