Found root w/o pc
Took the the plunge and tried framaroot,towelroot, then tried Kingroot version 3.5.0.
Its in Chinese so what I did was just hit the green button till it showed a check mark then a blue bar popped up then I hit that then restarted my watch.
Then I saw an app called kinguser so I installed root explorer.

In addition to deleting apps from the system/app using root explorer you have to start in
R/O then delete any app you want , It will ask you if you want to change to r/w and delete say "yes"obviously

Battery removal
The battery is removal, which is good, it would be good if spare batteries were available, I'll let you know if I come across any.

Here's a good video (long vid) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQR6lQR1EbM

WHERE TO BUY? guys (& girls) if you find a good seller, please share the details, as more people buy this watch, we get more support and hacks
I don't about the cheapest** site to buy, but DX.com seems like a safe place to buy and not too expensive, they accepts returns if a fault occurs.
** On AliExpress most sellers are selling clones as iMacwear M7, they are not iMacwear, be aware! However one can argue they are all clones, if you look in DX and GearBest they have similar ones, some are described as 1.3 Ghz, but these sites are not to be trusted.

iMacwear clone comparison
I know this thread is for the iMacwear, but just wanted to make sure people make an informed decision before buying. I found some interesting comparison with other clones on this thread from Jan 2015.


Also there are other clones which people have purchased:
Z01 which is 1.3 GHz, faster clock speed, and Android 4.2. $122 at the moment from DealsMachine. Z01 thread
AOKE Z15 - Android 4.0, but cheaper, but $112 from DX

There are loads more but these two have a thread or mention in XDA. The questions is why would you say that iMacwear M7 is better?. Here are the specs.

Hi, i'm thinking to buy this smartwatch but stilo struggling to understand in xda threads if it was updated to android 4.4 by the vendor or if One of the 4.4 omate TS firmwares available are supporter on it.
Moreover i'm intersted in smartphone companion app such ad SWAPp link ti get phone notifications on smartwatch, is it or any similar good app working on imacwear m7 on either the 4.2 or 4.4 versione?
And, furthermore, various specs are cinflicting in regards to sensors, FM radio and camera resolution: has it got proximity, compass, accelerometer, gravity and lightvsensors? FM radio yes or not? Is camera 5 or 3 MP interpolated? Is it possibile to unlock the screen with wirst movement if it has accelerometer/gravity sensor?
Thanks for any info or confirmation.

Thanks for your answer, sorry it does not clear out my confusion.
I don't seem the Omate clones are identical to the original nor between them and not only for the form factor.
