Make permission requests simple, transparent, and understandable. When requesting access, apps should make it clear why a permission is needed. For more information about best practices with permissions, see Request permissions on Wear OS.

Watch permissions

When Wear OS needs to grant permission to a watch app, it displays a dialog asking the user to accept or reject that permission. Apps should request permissions when and where it is clear why the permission is needed. For example, apps may request permissions after providing information about a specific permission.
