Hi all,

Today, I installed fitwear onto my SW3. For those of you who don't know, fitwear is an alternative system designed and made by a Chinese company called Lianluo, here is their website: http://fitwear.lianluo.com/ . In this version (Android v5.1.1) I found, it supports English, in addition, it supports OTA upgrade. However, this system seems to be free from google services.

This system does not require Android Wear APP.
OTA upgrade requires an Android Phone.

I have attached the files that I used. It contains: (I DID NOT made any of these tools, I only did translation.)
  1. Driver: install the common fastboot driver in FlashTool first.
  2. CMD easy Flash Tool: I translated it into English.
  3. recovery: unknown purposes.
  4. fitwear: v1.0, can be upgraded to v1.2 via OTA. (Build 20170118)
  5. Android Wear (unknown version): I did not roll back to AW and I haven't check the version.
  6. Orignial Chinese tutorial and flash_chs.bat: Read it if you can.

Installation Steps:
  1. Install Flashtool driver from FLASHTOOL and the driver provided.
  2. Extract the zip and run flash.bat (admin not needed).
  3. Unlock your watch using the cmd if you haven't.
  4. Flash Fitwear.
  5. Reboot to fitwear.
  6. Download the fitwear app onto your phone and connect to watch.

Note: OTA upgrade needs the watch to be connected to some WIFI.
Disclaimer: By doing this you void your warrenty and I don't take any responsibility if your brick your device.
Do not distruibute!!! This is not thoroughly tested.

I OTA upgraded to v1.2, nothing major changed, and I couldn't find a changelog. It seems that the watch would download something onto the phone to do the OTA upgrade, and I am wondering how to extract that out, or how to dump the entire system. Any help would be appreciated.

The battery seems to be nice, a lot of Chinese users reported very good battery usage. I guess that is due to the absence of Google Services.


I also noticed that OTA probably won't work with iOS.

Where did you find the rom for the SW3? On the downloads page of the website it allows me to download only the moto 360 one.

On the famous Chinese version of Reddit: Baidu Tieba.

On the change log, it says on version v1.9, they added English support. That APP works the same way as the Android Wear APP. You still have to play music on your phone, and on the watch you can control it.
