I know it's very early to talk about that, the device just came out but do you guys think that root will be possible for these android wear devices and as a result some hack will be made possible?

As I think it says in that article, it's best to wait for now. There's nothing to be achieved by rooting yet and it'll be best to wait for the protection of SuperUser/Su.

well we could at least unlock the bootloader for now since that is the easiest thing to do and most certainly wise when we first unbox so we wont lose any data like if we have been using it for a few days.

I think I'll be doing it - with Chromecast there was an update released that blocked rooting on later versions - don't want to miss out!
