Default Rooting android wear LG G Watch

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?

I am working on my development skills, but right now, I have dial up internet speed and old computer that makes it hard to build from source. I am also creating a couple ROMs(One ROM will focus on battery life, the other will focus on features) but I need help with money to get a better computer. Any help will be appreciated!.

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.
Current device's:
1. Hammerhead (N5): stock rooted
2. Grouper: stock just as i love her.

On a watch there isn't very much data to be lost

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!
