Fastboot mode usually comes up if your LG G Watch R went wrong when trying to flash a recovery image, for example when flashing TWRP recovery or ClockWorkMod.

How to enter into fastboot mode:

  1. Turn off the G Watch R
  2. Turn the watch on normally
  3. While LG logo is displayed and before the screen dims, swipe your finger from the top-left (10:30) position to the bottom-right (4:30) position.
  4. Done

Now you can easy enter the Recovery Menu of your G Watch R.

Download and place the TWRP 2.8.4.0 to your PC or laptop and flash it using fastboot.  You can find the more details you need at the links below.

If you really want to get your hands, or rather your wrist, on an Android Wear smartwatch, T-Mobile could have something that might be of interest. The carrier is currently selling the LG G Watch R for just $209.99. Using the promo code RMNHOLS30 or ACCOFFER18 when you check out. That makes the price a nice $90 below the officially recommended one.

If you remember, the LG G Watch R launched last week on T-Mobile for the price of $299.99. Now that cost has gone down to $90 off the original price.

Do note that this offer should have expired on November 30, so there’s no telling how long it will still be available.
