Android Wear Programming

It has been a while since I’ve programmed in Java.  I’m trying to pick up Android Wear programming again and boy, things have changed!  The last time I tried to do this, Android Studio just came out.  I’ve watched a few tutorials now on Android Studio and one thing that puzzles me is that when I create a project, rect_activity_main.xml and round_activity_main.xml are missing.The cause for this are the additional options for adding an Activity to Wear.    It defaults to Always on Wear Activity.  If I blindly click next, then the 2 xml files won’t be created.  I’ll have to research how an Always on Wear Activity works.  Even though it’s always on, it still needs an activity that has the layout for a watch?
