In my smartwatch (Android 5.1) i can only use the regular Locus, no wear. Is it possible have a smartwatch layout for regular locus?

I like Locus on my Smartphone, but when i go outside I often only use the watch and big Smartphone is at home.

In the round display i can't use the some of the buttons, for menu, for go to my current location...

I can change my watch that it show complete square screen, but then it's really small.

I know there is a version for android wear, but i can't use this without android wear. Is it possible have some of this layout also in Android Locus?

Hello,

I'm sorry to hear that, but unfortunately Wear for Locus Map (for Android Wear) is a completely separate project with separate layouts which cannot be used on standard Android OS. Also there is no support planned for round displays for Locus Map.

Sorry I can't help you more, but you will probably get a lot of other usability problems on such device with standard Android and personally I don't think it will get any better in the future as Google will probably concentrate on Android Wear system to support round and wearable Android devices.
