I’ve made a watch with WFS and I try to put in the google store WEAR OS.
After many exchange with google, the last message from us is :

About the Wear App Quality Guidelines
We do not accept apps into WearOS that don’t adhere to Wear App Quality Guidelines.
I have no idea of the problem. I read some forum who speak about ‘security data’…I’ve tried this but it doesn’t work anyway.
Just sharing. On the 16th of May ’22, I receive an e-mail from the Google Play Team than my app ‘com.watchfacestudio.sirius’ was rejected for not adhering to the Google Play Developer Program Policies. The message went on to say “SPLIT_BUNDLE 1” that the “refresh heartrate did not function as described in the store listing”.
I went back to WFS and rebuild a version 2. I did nothing else and resubmitted it (Create new release). Next day the app was approved and it was live. I’m perplexed, I practically did nothing else, let alone read the long-winded program policies.
I have to date about 50 Wear OS apps published and on sale in Google Play. 90% of these apps were recycle .wfs files where I make changes to the assets and arrangements for new apps. How is it that an app can be rejected when the rests went through - if the testers (Google Play Team) themselves are inconsistent with their own program policies?
Therefore, I have come to accept that there are testers amongst Google Play Team whom have no idea Wear OS or Smartwatches. Seems they are fresh computer science students, work with a given scrip/manual/sop. To explain things that they don’t understand, they will give you a link to an “encyclopedia of nothingness” to keep you off their back until some other unfortunate member lands with your issue.
