This process can be different with different version or skins you are using on your Android smartphone. The process we are going to suggest now works with most of the versions.
First of all, Enable Developer Options on the Android smartphone or tab you have paired with your Wear Watch.
Step #1. Launch ‘Settings’ and scroll down to tap on ‘About.’
Step #2. At the bottom, you will find ‘Build Number’ option; tap on it for seven (7) times.
Now you will see the ‘Developer Options’ in the Settings app only just above ‘About’ option.
Step #3. Launch Android Wear app on your Android phone or tablet and then tap on three vertical dots on the top right corner of your screen.
Step #4. Tap on ‘Take wearable screenshot’ option.
Step #5. After few seconds in the notification tray, you will see an alert which is saying the screenshot is captured. Tap on the notification to open.
Now you can share this screenshot wherever you wish to share. One thing you must note is that the screenshot you have captured will not be saved in Photos app and once you clear the notification it will be deleted.
