    Still not sure if anybody had tried this or not, but for the life of me I can't get the watch to be seen by my pc when it is connected via usb.....I have the drivers installed as instructed and have usb debugging enabled as well, but nothing.........

    I'm using a Windows 8 pc, not sure if that is it.

    I'm gonna try this on an older computer......Wish me luck.

    Sorry about not getting back, nice to see you got it working. did you find what was wrong? People said that trying it on another computer worked for them cause of the Samsung drivers not installing properly on their computer.

    I'm fairly new to Android rooting and I have seen the benefits of rooting a tablet or a smartphone, but what would be the benefits of rooting this device?, I personally don't own it but it may be nice to know, can you add new functionality?, like what?.
