Pairing wear emulator with android nexus 5X emulator Challenge: Notifications on Android Wear

I cannot figure out how to complete the “Notifications on Android Wear” challenge. Since I don’t have a physical android device I am trying to pair and android emulator Nesux 5X API 28 with an Android Wear square API 28 emulator. The first step would be to download the Wear OS app on the phone. I tried this but It doesn’t let me download the app on the phone as it says “your device isn’t compatible with this version” when trying to download it from the play store. I then tried to download the apk file and manually install it but that fails also.

Does anyone have a solution to this challenge? is it possible to pair the 2 emulators?
