Android Wear porting, Source Code release and hardware blobs for hardware?

Are you guys going to make the source and everything else public so people can work on a real Android Wear ROM for the watch? Would love to see that happen! :)

As Mobvoi are primarily a search company the main reason to get the ticwatch out into the world is to promote their software not Android Wear, I hope that some wear support will be upcoming but I very much doubt you'll get a source or be able to roll you own OS to the watch.

Yeah, I found out about that later on too... Tho I still don't get why the Ticwatch 2 ships with crippled Android Wear in China.
Also, Ticwear is never going to succeed as good as Android Wear will, especially due to the low app support they have.
