Unofficial F2FS-compatible TWRP for the Huawei Watch
Please note that to use this, your bootloader MUST be unlocked.
You can download the modified recovery image from here.
To flash this recovery, make sure that your watch is plugged into your PC, in fastboot mode, with all of the proper drivers installed (if applicable), then run the following command.
Code:
fastboot flash recovery twrp-f2fs-3.0.2-sturgeon.img
Now you should be able to reboot to TWRP recovery and use it like you would on a phone!

Sources:
Kernel source: https://github.com/r3pwn/android_kernel_huawei_sturgeon
Device tree source: https://github.com/r3pwn/android_device_huawei_sturgeon
Devs, please note that the device tree is designed to be built in a CM tree, not an Omni tree. If you are having some trouble getting TWRP into your CM tree, PM me and I'll help you out.

Below, you will find a link to an imgur album full of pictures I've taken of the watch in recovery mode, plus proof that this recovery has f2fs-compatibility.

Awesome. Been waiting for the 3.0.2 update. Thanks so much.

What are the benefits of f2fs on such a small device? The difference was noticeable on my Nexus 5 way back when... guess I should just try it out and see!

From what I've noticed, any lag that was there before is now gone completely, and eveything seems at least slightly smoother.

My phone gave repeated notifications that watch has disconnected, so I thought I would unpair and pair it. Watch decided to factory reset at Android side, which caused a TWRP boot loop. Ideas, other than flash_all in bootloader? Maybe there is a should-reset flag or similar indicator that Android sets that the recovery should unset?

So when I boot, watch goes to TWRP. No matter what partitions I wipe (excluding system), it will not boot to Android.

I flashed stock recovery, then rebooted watch and everything is ok. Flashed this TWRP back afterwards.

I don't fully understand the steps to take, but I want to try this because it looks really good.

do I have this right?

1 flash this twrp
2 wipe all partitions and internal storage
3 use this twrp to change all partitions to f2fs, or just data?
4 flash-all.bat the stock images provided by Google

could I flash skin1980's MM kernel afterwards?

thank you
