Unfortunately, the answer to this question is negative. Until now, there is no Audible Wear OS app. So, if you want to listen to Audible audiobooks on your Wear OS watch, you need to upload the offline audiobook files to your watch.

This encoded format is not compatible with any other platform or device. So, before you transfer Audible files to your Wear OS, you need to first convert Audible AA/AAX to a popular audio format.
|Wear OS-supported Audio Format||MP3, FLAC, M4A, AA, and AAX|
|Audible Audiobook Format||AA, AAX|
|DRmare Output Format||MP3, FLAC, WAV, M4A, M4B, and AAC|
