DEPRECATED because I don't have the watch anymore. Might still work, might also not. Feel free to just try and iterate on my work.

TWRP touch recovery
This is TWRP touch recovery for the Asus Zenwatch 3.
Usual disclaimer:
Code:
 I take no responsibility for any issues to your watch, your house, your job, your kitten, blah blah.
DON'T ALLOW TWRP TO MODIFY /SYSTEM IF YOU DIDN'T DISABLE DM-CRYPT! Recovery will then get overwritten on every boot though.

INSTRUCTIONS
It's recommended to boot it via "fastboot boot twrp_swift_*.img".
To flash, use the default "fastboot flash recovery twrp_swift_*.img". To boot into recovery, use adb or hold center and bottom button when off. Everything is tested to work fine.
If you want to return to stock recovery, flash recovery image from here.[/SIZE]

DOWNLOAD
3.1.1-0: twrp_swift_3.1.1-0.img
3.1.0-0: recovery_swift-3.1.0-0.img
3.0.2-0: recovery.img

SOURCES
Device/board config
Recommended platform manifest

Thanks a lot to @joeykrim and @T10NAZ, I used their Zenwatch 2 thread as a guide to compile the kernel and recovery.

This is interesting to see, I don't own a ZenWatch 3, but I'm curious how this would work. Would it be possible to flash custom ROMs on a watch? Maybe even port over Android 2.0 for the ZenWatch 3? Just curious how this would work on a watch.

Thank you!
I flashed a SuperSU zip file and the flash process worked well. Still root is not working because the SuperSU app crashes everytime something needs root rights...

Which SuperSU.zip did you flash? Remember not every SuperSU.zip are compatible with Android wear. I am a bit out of time ..will try to play with root in my kernel.

Did you flash the recovery or also only boot it?

Sorry for the late response, I didn`t flash it I just booted it. But I`ve sent the watch back and got a Gear S3 instead now.

No prob, I already tested myself and flashing worked fine.
