*later*

I found the pin-out!

from the back of the watch, ID, D+, D-, GND, 5V

Right now, I have a direct adb connetion to the watch.

Great news! What about fastboot mode? I'm tracking this thread from the beginning, deciding whether to buy this device! Now it seems my waiting is over Thanks!

Maybe a new post in the developers section would be warranted for more exposure. Thanks for figuring it out!

Fastboot is what is used in the bootloader. Fastboot oem unlock is how he got it unlocked. Root is now simple as well. Now someone just needs to start producing cables

Excellent news, now we just need a recovery to install and this should only need to be done once (if you can tolerate slow ROM transfers over BT)

*a few minutes later*

Bootloader unlocked! the standard "fastboot oem unlock" command works perfectly

Ha. Great work. Very interested to see what happens with this capability.

I noticed you twisted the D+, D- lines. Good sign of someone who knows what they are doing with USB.

Awesome pics too.

**UPDATE**
Wait. Not sure of your pin out. Are the D+, D- lines twisted?
If pin out from back of watch then D+, D- are not twisted.
Well, you should twist your D+, D- lines if length over 4 inches.

I posted this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4&postcount=26 last friday, before I had the watch. I was wondering why you were not trying it!

Good eye!. I didn't know which pin was each, so I twisted them according to my first deductions. I spent some minutes crossing them in a breadboard (not shown in the picture). The colors in this picture are not correct!

I replaced my FCC sticker, I can confirm it still has good stickiness but I wouldn't do it more than 2 or 3 times, I think a piece of tape will be needed to keep IP67 if we get lots of good Rom development in the future and have to keep accessing the port.

But the first step is a connector design file so we can send it off to get printed:
