Step 4. Once in the bootloader run
Code:
fastboot boot "twrp-3.0.0-0-dory+squashfs.img"
Step 5. run
Code:
adb push Magisk-vXX.zip /sdcard/

Code:

Step 6. In TWRP click Install-> Install ZIP -> Scroll Down -> Select Magisk-vXX.zip -> Tick button -> Swipe to flash -> When finished click the back key ->
Step 7. Install ZIP -> Select dory-localprop-and-magisk-manager.zip -> Tick button -> Swipe to Flash

Step 9. Open Magisk Manager App -> Click Hamburger Menu (three lines) -> Scroll Down to Settings (Labelled Setti on small screen) -> Click it
Step 10. Scroll Down -> Enable Magisk Hide

Tip
  1. Scroll Down in Magisk Manager settings and change "Automatic Response" to "grant" whenever you want to use root and "deny" when you don't. This is because the prompt window is designed for phones and is too big.

Hahha this is what I love about this! You can do it because you can.
I'll dig up my G Watch and unlock the bootloader.

There's no reason really, I just managed to get magisk to work on an android wear device as a proof of concept and wanted to share it.

Nice, I thought about doing this myself but unfortunately my g watch met an untimely demise, I still update SuperSU tho since I know that works fine and didn't need to test it first. Good to see someone is still keeping this watch alive!
BTW this method should work on all watches, SuperSU does anyway.

Would this work on a other android wear watch? Like Sony smartwatch 3? Or is it trial and error?
