Better idea,
go to Play Store and download the Package names app . open it and you will see the apps that are installed on your phone.

Try running simple adb commands

adb connect (your watch IP address & enable debugging)
adb shell
pm list packages

You will get an output list like this

The app ID is the text after package:

Thank you. Does the “package names app” downloaded from the Play Store include apps on my Samsung Classic 6 watch?

No idea what you mean. Can you write that response in clear language. In other word does the “package names app” downloaded from the Play Store include apps on my Samsung Classic 6 watch?

"package names app”
Is more for apps on the phone. But some apps can be installed in both phone and watch. I guess for those apps the ids are same.

Where can I find the app ID list for Samsung Classic 6?

You got to connect to your watch via adb and run commands from your pc

Or u can ask here what ids u looking for. :smirk:

Hi Knightwing, do you know a way to paste and copy the ap id to WFS custom button or is there another way without typing in the command?

Depends the field is pastable like any text field.
