Google didn't support NFC in the first round of Android Wear devices? No problem!

Depending on the chip, you can simply stick it on back of the watch and it will work. I did that with my pebble. However, some don't work. I received some nfc stickers and they weren't strong enough.

Well, it makes it quick to unlock. (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zx5v63D-X80 for a video)
The way it is now, it's probably not that secure, other phone unlocking methods (e.g. pattern, pin) are worse when people around you can see what you're typing so easily. In any case I think this type of unlocking method can be made more secure if we really want to.

Ideally, future watches should support NFC communication so we can do a proper cryptographically secure handshake.

It's just a nfc tag he put inside the watch. Nothing else.
