"If you have pressed the power button for 15-20 seconds, and the watch has vibrated twice your Moto 360 will launch into Bootloader mode.
Simply press the Power key to exit Bootloader mode and power up the Moto 360 as usual."

I guess there are similar pins like on the gwatch and Samsung gear live but they are hidden behind the end of the watch band and you have to make a custom USB connector.

See these pics:

Just took off my watch band, no pins. Also bootloader tells you to connect a USB cord, so no bluetooth.

Looks like it's under the FCC approval sticker (if that's actually a sticker). I'm basing this off of the iFixit teardown.

Yep, just saw that. Will try again in a little bit to get a USB connection working.

Be careful. EVEN iFixit broke the plastic cap on the back of the watch. There is quite a lot of double-sided tape. You break that and watertight/dusttight operation goes out the window.

I would hope he can peel off a sticker without cracking the back casing. Looks like it just needs some small pogo pins and it will work great. Peeling the sticker off does likely remove the water and dust protection though.
