Thanks to Ali_Alex for the link!

The Update https://android.googleapis.com/pack...866b47.signed-sturgeon-MEC23L-from-LCB43B.zip

I used the latest minimal ADB and Fastboot here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2317790

Make sure you are connected to your charging dock.
Make sure you are running the latest update LCB43B.

I did all this on Win 10.

1. Just be fully stock including recovery. Refer to Skin1980's guide here to return to stock if you used his previous kernel or did any other mods like TWRP or root. (http://forum.xda-developers.com/huawei-watch/general/guide-return-to-stock-huawei-watch-t3219596)
2. Make sure you have debugging turned on inside developer settings. (If the menu is not there tap your build number in about menu 7 or 8 times and it will appear)
3. Run command "adb devices" and make sure your device appears. (If it says unauthorized check watch screen and accept you pc as trusted) (If nothing appears make sure you have the correct drivers installed I use the universal naked driver here http://forum.xda-developers.com/goo...nt/adb-fb-apx-driver-universal-naked-t2513339) (People have reported PDANET drivers are working if the naked drivers do not work for them and are somewhat easier to install.)
4. Run adb command "adb reboot bootloader"
5. Reboot recovery from inside bootloader using the button's short and long taps to change selection and select reboot recovery.
6. Scroll down and select apply update from adb.
7. Rename zip to update.zip and make sure its located inside the root directory of your adb installation.
8. Run command "adb sideload update.zip"
Wait
Enjoy! :highfive:
Don't forget to hit the thanks button! I appreciate it!

I updated OP check the steps again. adb commands won't work in bootloader. Once in recovery swipe down and select apply update from adb then issue the "adb sideload update.zip" command.

Make sure the update file is inside your root adb directory on your hard drive.

It looks like your device is still not visible to adb. Make sure you don't have any other devices connected like a phone with debugging turned on also. And you do need to be in recovery with it awaiting the sideload update.zip command. You seemed to be in the correct place.

I was wondering why I couldn't boot to the recovery directly so thanks a ton for the help! Also dayum, the speaker sure is quite loud for a smartwatch!

To the person above no, you do not need to have the phone to your pc connected for it to work.

Let me test mine and see if it is visible while waiting on the adb sideload update.zip command

    I answered a phone call by mistake with my watch. Felt like captain Kirk :D

    My experience with the sideload update.

    It was successful but I did run into a few hiccups.

    I couldn't get the ADB drivers to load on my PC. I ended up using a different file that I found at the bottom of this thread....
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/huawei-watch/general/computer-to-recognize-watch-t3230034

    They were called the PDANet ADB Drivers. They worked for me with Windows 7 64-bit.

    Then I followed the instructions and all worked fine...some other items of note with respect to the instructions...see my comments in red....

    [[Instructions from Page 1]]
    1. Just be fully stock including recovery.
    2. Make sure you have debugging turned on inside developer settings. (If the menu is not there tap your build number in about menu 7 or 8 times and it will appear) (only one of these settings needs to be turned on.
    3. Run command "adb devices" and make sure your device appears. (If it says unauthorized check watch screen and accept you pc as trusted) (If nothing appears make sure you have the correct drivers installed I use the universal naked driver here http://forum.xda-developers.com/goog...naked-t2513339) (Like I said, these drivers did not work for me..I used PDANet ADB drivers instead in Win 7 environment...and it was an executable file too)
    4. Run adb command "adb reboot bootloader"
    5. Reboot recovery from inside bootloader using the button's short and long taps to change selection and select reboot recovery.
    6. Scroll down and select apply update from adb. (For this step #6 -- you don't use the button at all, but instead you use swipes on the touchscreen -- swipe up and down to make selection...and left-right to select).
    7. Rename zip to update.zip and make sure its located inside the root directory of your adb installation.
    8. Run command "adb sideload update.zip"
    Wait (It took me about 10-15 minutes...there were some concerns when it seemed to stop at around 57%...but it eventually counted again...just be patient.--- and afterwards you will need to swipe for it to REBOOT NOW option on the watch)

    Reboot - Power off (under settings) and after turn on
    Factory reset - Unpair with Phone under Settings

    hey when i try to go to recovery and do the "adb devices within stock recovery.. i see this

    c:\android\hwatch> adb reboot bootloader

    c:\android\hwatch>adb devices
    list of devices attached

    c:\android\hwatch>

    even though when i was on the main menu of the watch before rebooting to recovery and all that

    list of devices attached
    FFS7N15B06003222 device

    i go to bootloder reboot recovery adb devices... get nothing in there

    I updated OP check the steps again. adb commands won't work in bootloader. Once in recovery swipe down and select apply update from adb then issue the "adb sideload update.zip" command.
