This is a basic guide for those who do not know how to install and uninstall APKs on your Moto 360 without an usb cable.

Prerequisites:
  1. ADB drivers on your PC (Thanks @Snoop05)
  2. Minimal ADB and Fastboot (Thanks @shimp208) or all Google SDK
  3. PC and Moto 360??

Let's start:

Connect the watch to your PC:

1. On your Moto 360 go in settings > developer options* > Turn on ADB Debug and Bluetooth debug


2. On your phone go in settings > developer options* and enable "USB Debug"

3. Connect your phone on your PC

4.In the android wear app go in settings (at the bottom) and enable "Bluetooth Debug"
You will see: Host: Disconnected Target: Connected


5. Open Minimal ADB and Fastboot in your PC and type:
HTML Code:
adb forward tcp:4444 localabstract:/adb-hub
adb connect localhost:4444
Now on your phone the voice "Disconnected" on the Host voice should be changed to "Connected"


Now your Moto 360 it's connect to your PC

*If you don't have "developer options" go on "info" and tap 7 times on "build number"

Install an APK:

Warning: Now every command for your watch must be in the following way:
HTML Code:
adb -s localhost:4444 <command>
(Without "<" and ">")

1. Procured the APK file

2. Place the APK file in the installation directory of "Minimal ADB and Fastboot"

3.In "Minimal ADB and Fastboot" type:
HTML Code:
adb -s localhost:4444 install nameoftheapk.apk
So if my apk name is "Game" you must type:
HTML Code:
adb -s localhost:4444 install game.apk
4. Wait patiently this will take a long time depending on the size of the file (About 5 minutes for 10mb file)

5. If the word "success" appears everything has been successful.

Uninstall an APK:
Warning: Now every command for your watch must be in the following way:
HTML Code:
adb -s localhost:4444 <command>
(Without "<" and ">")

1. For uninstall an apk su must know the package name, usually "com.nameofthedeveloper.nameoftheapp"
For a list of the app installed on your watch type:
HTML Code:
adb -s localhost:4444 shell
AND
HTML Code:
pm list packages –f
Not always work, but if it works you will see a list of package name. Installed app stay on "data/app/"

For example this is the game "Don't tap the white tile" and the package name is at the end: "com.umonistudio.tile"

2. Now that you say the package name on "Minimal ADB and Fastboot" type:
HTML Code:
adb -s localhost:4444 uninstall com.example.example
In case of that game:
HTML Code:
adb -s localhost:4444 uninstall com.umonistudio.tile
3.If the word "success" appears everything has been successful and the app is uninstalled properly.

End of the guide, sorry for my bad english, Thanks!

Great guide! Just an FYI, instead of running

Code:
adb -s localhost:4444 <command>
most users should be able to run

Code:
adb -e <command>
I would run adb -e shell to verify that it connects to your 360 and not your phone (it should say minnow for the device name).
