Can wrist camera read the product bar-code and locate it ?

Unfortunately, the camera won't be able to recognize the unique code in a reliable way. Character recognition isn't supported.
You would need a bigger unique feature to get a good detection with the camera.
I can add that, even with 1D bar code reading technology, you will only get limited positionning accuracy. Indeed, the barcode "y" coordinate would vary between its top and bottom while the x-coordinate would be located more precisely near its center.

How many different parts do you need to detect?
If you don't have many I would probably use circle/rectangle/square of different size as it would be easy to teach using parametric method
Did you try using the parametric method to teach the circle? Transparent objects are difficult to teach but depending on lighting condition and background you might be able to correctly locate these parts.
Otherwise, as I said a square or round sticker would be easy to detect.
