Forgot Unlock Pattern - Unable to factory reset

Post by dkelly.uk » Mon Jan 20, 2020 7:28 pm

I have forgotten the unlock pattern and I cant get the device to restore to factory settings.
I removed it from the wearOS app but nothing changed on the watch.
Ive tried the things I have found by googling;
swipe diagonal during boot - nothing happened.
boot into the menu by holding bottom button during boot - No options in there allow me to reset.
Boot into recovery mode and reset via ADB - Couldn't connect to watch.

I'm now stuck with a watch I cant use.

Back in November last year someone with the same problem was told that the solution was to keep entering patterns until the watch asks whether you want to reset. Worth a try. You might even come across the right pattern by accident.

This worked!! Took about 10 mins due to 30 sec timeouts after wrong attempt but it worked.

Thank you!!!
