After quite some smali digging I was finally able to put together an Xposed module that enables the status bar in custom launchers (and other apps as well, if desired).
This is the very first alpha version, and it is only tested with X201-KK BASE. The module will most likely work with other 4.4 ROMS for x201 smart watches as well.

Changelog
Version 0.1: First release. Enables the status bar in most launchers. Does not play well with GravityBox.
Version 0.2: Enables the status bar in all apps. Use other Xposed modules to enable full screen mode when desired. Does work well alongside GravityBox, Xposed Additions, etc.

Click on the Download tab above, download and manually install the APK (for now).
The module should then show up in Xposed Installer. Just activate it and reboot.

Installed OK. Deactivated GravityBox when trying out.

By default, I only get the status bar flashing when first opening an application. If I am quick, I can pull down notifications.
In Nova, I can Toggle Notification Bar (shortcut) to see the status bar, but not other apps. Tried App Settings too.

At least something, it is a pain that Omate/Umeox chose to remove the status bar the way they did instead of using Android built in functionality.

The current version only enables the status bar in apps with "launcher" in their package name.
It's an ugly hack, I know, but I just wanted status bar in Nova, Launcher 8, etc. for now. It's an alpha version, you know.

I can release another APK to enable the status bar in every application, but it will not look good with a status bar in the lock screen, for example.
I would prefer a settings screen to activate/deactivate the status bar on a per app basis.

Edit:
New version released. It enables the status bar in every app. I think it works with 4.2 ROMs as well, but haven't tested.

Hi nilezon, unfortunately it seems not working on 4.2 versions. As another said some posts above, I just can see the status bar for a while when I open an app in Nova Launcher, but it disappear afterwards nor I can see the notification bar in the apps themselves . Installed v.0.2 of the module.
It would be great if you could do something for 4.2 as well. Thanks.

My fault, it worked on 4.2.2. I had to performance a full reboot upon module activation. Previously the watch had fast reboot activated and it did not work after fast reboot. Just if someone else want to try the module on 4.2.
