No CPU/ABI system image available for this target

Trying to create a new AVD. All Device options have only 'Android 4.4W - API Level 20' as a target. Error message displays No CPU/ABI system image available for this target. The option to press OK and continue is voided because of this.

How do I combat this issue and generate a working AVD?

You'll need a system image for the API level of your AVDs. In your case, it looks like you want to emulate an Android Wear project.

Using the SDK Manager, install either the ARM or Intel system images listed under API 20. Follow the prompts and that should get you going.
