Launch app on watch from phone?

Android Wear / Wear OS for iPhone
I am experimenting with a HUD for a motorcycle helmet using the main watch unit (without the straps) of the new Oppo watch 41mm. I would like to be able to launch an app from a bluetooth remote button on the handlebar. For example single press a button and it launches Google Maps on the watch, double press a button and it launches Speedometer app on the watch, etc. I don’t think the bluetooth remote can directly launch an app on the watch because I tried to connect a bluetooth keyboard and also a selfie bluetooth remote to WearOS watch and although it connected it shows that the bluetooth device is Not Available.

However the bluetooth remote could connect to the phone and the phone would launch the app on the watch. Is there a way or an app on the phone that can launch an app on the watch?
