I ended up flashing stock and it's working again and i'm very happy..

Can anyone tell me how much the battery life extended using this rom?
I would say the battery is almost as good as in stock, obviously lasting a little bit less when using it all day because it's android wear 2.0. But with a normal use is something like a day and a half or more (based on my usage)

I decided to put my big boy pants on and try to install this rom after a day of having my watch back after years lol
Let's see how this goes.

update: ok all went well it's flashed, now i'm waiting for it to do it's thing. is it supposed to sit on the LG screen for a long time? or is it hung?

u2: i think it's hung up lol.. i think this screen will time out eventually and i can try again..
pressing the bottom button alone doesn't seem to do anything.

u3: oh i have to hold reset down for 8 seconds. going to try that now.

The LG screen always disappears after a few secs, then the boot animation is shown and it usually stays there for like 10-15 minutes or so, if it's taking longer than 20 minutes it's probably stuck. If it's always stuck at the LG logo screen I would recommend then restoring the watch to stock and flashing it all again. If you have doubts about any of the flashing steps in the guide let me know and I will help ya

At first the watch needs to update a few apps by itself, it will take quite a bit. Just leave it connected for a few hours and you will likely have all the updates needed. You can make sure that the updates are happening by entering play store, scrolling down and checking the "My Apps" section. And don't worry about this, it's the expected behaviour at first

Update time!

Since the recent release and disclosure of the pixel watch system files I've been trying to replicate and prepare the rom for a big update in terms of looks and feeling. My main goal right now is to try and mimic the pixel watch and the wear os 3.0 system as good as I can (there's still a lot of work to do). This update brings most of the new material you icons for many of the system apps but also brings some new goodies to the watch, like the Phone app to the apps menu (you can now make calls with your watch), more text size choices in display settings, and more! Also, there is some under-the-hood changes that might improve the system usability and overall response (there's still room for improvement!).

So that said, hope you guys enjoy this one, let me know any issues and have a nice christmas!

Latest newdory 0.7 (11/12/2022):
- Updated Agenda icon
- Updated HomeButton icon
- Updated Google Play app icon
- Removed Reminders app
- Added more text sizes choices in settings
- Updated Flashlight icon and app resources
- Enabled Phone app shortcut in the apps menu
- Pre-installed Google Keep (not available on playstore)
- Made Google Translate icon round
- Made Google Maps icon round
- Updated Contacts and Phone icons
- Updated DeskClock icons (Timer, Stopwatch, Alarm...)
- Cleaned up build.prop
- Tweaked some DEX compilation parameters
- Improved app installation time
- Small changes and various improvements

(P.S expect 0.8 in a few months)

After installing this version, how come the Play Store doesn't appear in the app drawer, i mean it hasn't been installed yet? Is it necessary to install gapps?

Sorry, it's my fault because I haven't activated the internet in my phone :v, now the playstore has installed
Yeah my bad, haven't mentioned this but I replaced the Play Store app with the google play services updater, which will download the latest available play store version. So at first boot it won't show up but it will eventually be downloaded and installed so don't worry about that, might come up with something better for next update

You are a gentleman and a scholar.

Thanks for keeping this watch relevant.

    As promised... Update time!

    Finally got around UI modding again and this time I think I went for the biggest UI changes. This update changes some UI elements to look like Wear OS 3.0, specially the drawers items. You will notice also some big changes in the Settings app since I reordered the main elements and updated most of the icons so that it looks as close to a pixel watch as possible (also added the Locations panel heh). Updated and cleaned up the build props as well (again huh) and also included a better and lighter Phone Shortcut app. Finally I updated the Google Play app to the latest possible (this was a pain in the ass and I better not explain why) and also updated the system fonts to the Google Sans Text variant (Introduced in A12~ as the default font).

    That said, enjoy aand let me know any issues!

    Latest newdory 0.8 (24/01/2023):
    • Updated build.prop (optimal af now)
    • Better Phone Shortcut (source)
    • Solved issues with Google Play Store
    • Added another level of brightness (lowest possible)
    • Updated UI to look like Wear OS 3.0 (wip)
    • Updated Settings app look (Wear 3.0 style)
    • Added the Location panel in Settings
    • Updated fonts to Google Sans Text (Wear OS 3.0 style)

    New rom link available here

    P.S: Hopefully expect Wear OS 3.0 notifications and apps drawer for the next update!

    Btw I'll leave some screenshots so you can see what I'm really talking about

    This rom is an attempt at trying to make the LG G Watch feel as close to Wear OS 3.0 as possible. You will find that font, icons and some UI elements are updated to mimic the latest Wear OS updates. At the same time I also tried to improve both the battery life and the overall response time while also adding some extra customization. If you are curious about the whole changelog just read the Changelog/Features>> section below. Let me know if you encounter any issues and have fun!

    Flashing instructions/Downloads >>

    Great ROM! However, I am experiencing some issues with it, one of which is probably my fault.

    1. With my current setup, my watch always boots into recovery even if I select boot to the system. The only way I am able to boot it into the system is by using the "fastboot continue" command.
    2. My watch has a white spot on bottom right of the screen, which I am sure is not a hardware issue as it worked fine in TWRP and when I initially boot in the system.

    And, yes, I did try flashing everything again. So, if you know how I could fix this, I would highly appreciate that :)
    The white spot is intentional. In WearOS 2.0, you can only access some features with a hardware button. Because the G Watch does not have a physical side button, this white spot serves as that. It is a virtual button that emulates the button on the later-released G Watch R.

    I also have the same issue with the "fastboot continue" command. However, I only started to experience this when I unpaired the watch and it tried to do a factory reset. Maybe the boot flags were messed up, but I have no idea. I'll try the fastboot continue command and see if I can get it to work. I haven't tried that since when I started having the issue, I just left my watch be.

    EDIT: I didn't see OP's response when writing this. Basically this can be ignored :)

    Okey, well for the first issue I would recommend going inside twrp recovery > wipe > factory reset > swipe right. Then reinstall the rom again
    And for the second one, it's not an issue, it's an app that comes pre-included so that you can open the apps list by pressing the white dot on the corner. You can customize it by going into apps > HomeButton > and changing transparency or position there
