This is an android app that allows you to use your phone as pip-boy. It actually syncs with your game, so all information is real-time and, yes, it works on our android wear devices!

Do you have to side load it to the watch? I have it on my phone, but there is no option to open it on my zenwatch 2.

Yup, you need to extract apk and sideload it. Also, notice how it cuts off 40% of the app and clicking on the buttons is really hard as they are so small. So, its only good for showing off to your fallout 4 fan friends. Although, using the map for fast travel on the watch is not that bad.

However, if you are really determined to have it showing fully, you can try playing with DPI values.

I figured it out. It keeps randomly closing for me though, and the left and right half of the screen are cut off. I'm new to sideloading apps to my wear device, so now I need to figure out how to remove it from my watch

I tried some of the methods posted on the net, but none seem to work. What you can try is to load TWRP recovery into your watch and just delete folder that contains works like falloutcompanionapp inside /data/app/. Or if you already rooted your watch, you can just access that folder without recovery.

Code:
adb shell
pm list packages -3
Copy+paste the packagename you want, then
Code:
pm uninstall <packagename>
exit

Let me guess.... the watch has to be rooted to sideload it?

Don't guess - just try.

I did some research, and it turns out I don't have to be rooted. Don't even need that special CAT5/USB cable that the Moto 360 requires. Just Sven's toolkit.

That's right, you don't need a root to sideload apps. You just need to activate the adb mode in developer settings. Its best to use adb over USB since Bluetooth is so painfully slow.
