Managing Android Wear 2.0 devices with Google Mobile Management

When we launched Android Wear 2.0, we launched more than a platform for notifications on a watch—we launched an extension of your phone. With Android Wear 2.0, you can write emails, manage calendar appointments, chat with coworkers, make calls, and more.

As a G Suite administrator, we believe that you should be able to manage any device—not just smartphones and tablets, but watches as well. That’s why we’ve made it possible to manage Android Wear 2.0 devices with Google Mobile Management. Now you can enforce policies (like requiring a PIN or a password) and remove corporate data if a user’s Android Wear 2.0 watch is lost or stolen.

If you’re already managing devices with Google Mobile Management, there’s nothing more you need to do. If an employee adds her corporate account to a watch with Android Wear 2.0, she'll be automatically prompted to download the Google Apps Device Policy app and set up her watch accordingly.

If you’re not managing devices with Google Mobile Management, we’ve now made it easier than ever. Check out our guide on the Help Center for steps to get started.
