This probably won't work, you don't have adb shell available in bootloader, and while booted up you can't use the pm disable command without root..

true.. it will be more easier to boot TWRP, disable dm-verify and edit build.prop line
Code:
ro.build.id=MWG68
to
Code:
ro.build.id=MWG68_something

Thanks, i had to revert because i started getting random reboots since 2.0... Now I'mm gonna wait and see if it continues.
BTW, i think you forgot "fastboot oem lock" after downgrading.

I'm having to much issues with 2.0 and overall I hate the update, so this guide is very appreciated, yet my watch is brand new and I don't want to mess things up, can you please do a complete guide with links to all the software needed and stuff? This seems to be for those who are already in the "knowing how to flash the FW", I believe I need to unlock the bootloader to in order to revert to AW 1.5 right? Or isn't that needed?

Thanks for the help @ingbrzy

Ok, I've been doing some reading and I'm almost ready to flash the watch back to 1.5, but just in case I'll make here the full list of what I've done/about to do, please check if all is correct:

1 - Download and place the Platform-tools folder from here on a easy access place to access on your PC
1.b - Edith Path Variable as shown here just be make things easier

2 - Enable USB debugging on watch by going to the watch Settings/System/About and pressing a few times on the Build Number
2.B - To check if the connection is well done between watch and PC open a command line on Windows and write "adb devices", it should show the watch SN listed

3 - Unlock the bootloader!
3.1 - Reboot to fastload (via *adb command* (You do this by opening a command prompt window from within windows itself) "adb reboot bootloader")
3.2 - type command "fastboot oem unlock"

4 - Download STOCK ROM MWG68 images

From here is where I have doubts, DON'T FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS until someone more experienced confirms if it's correct or not

5 - Place the files unziped: system.img / boot.img and recovery.img downloaded on point 4 inside the platform-tools folder in point 1

6 - Open a command prompt window and past the following code ***DOUBT*** Full code at once as shown bellow or line by line followed by enter??

Code:
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot erase userdata
fastboot reboot
7 - make factory reset on watch by... "unpair and reset" in the watch settings...

7.1 - Re-lock bootloader is advised? How and why to do it?

8 - Don't install AW 2.0 again?

@ingbrzy is this correct or am I missing something?
