Not sure I am right, but I think you should use Sony's update manager (or whatever the name is) to flash the watch, or an other software, but mind if I ask, how did you get into this situation, what was the last thing you did when the watch was working?

So there I was watching a performance. Then I casually checked the time and BAM it was still stuck at 7:30 hen it was about 8. Then i did some quick research on my phone and saw about SUS then when I went home i tried and finally got it to connect. It was then stuck at about 1% and not moving at the installing (It said there was an update). Then overnight as my cmputer went to sleep the watch suddenly turned dead. It is now dead

List of Apps I installed:
WatchIt
TicTacToe
Smart Camera
Slideshow
Runtastic
Music Player
Messaging
Hangouts
Gmail
Email
Custom Watch
Call Handling
Calender Reminder
Calculator

After much cursing and gnashing of teeth, I got the Sony Update Service software to recognize the watch. I noticed that when I powered up my (bricked) SW2, the SONY logo would flash for a split second on the screen before the dreaded "Flash FS" message. So after powering down the watch, I plugged it in to my PC and hit the power button several times quickly. This triggered the windows device manager to successfully recognize the device as a Sony Smartwatch and the update software room it from there. About 10-15 minutes later... my SW2 was working again.
