Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it.

One-Click SuperCID and Bootloader Unlock for AT&T / Rogers HTC One X
With the resurgence of HTC development around XDA due in no small part to S-Off being achieved, HTC devices are enjoying more freedom and users are having more fun than they have in a long time. With some devices already getting their rounds of SuperCID, it was only a matter of time before newer HTC devices got the same. And now for users of the AT&T and Rogers HTC One X, you can now share in the SuperCID glory.
For those who are unfamiliar, SuperCID gives you some pretty fun freedoms—not the smallest of which is being able to flash any ROM by any carrier onto your device. This is thus quite useful for ROM porting and, if you’re careful, it can be fun to see what works and what doesn’t work from other similar devices. On behalf of XDA Recognized Developer designgears, XDA Forum Moderator and Recognized Developer kennethpenn has released a method that gives all AT&T and Rogers One X users SuperCID with a very handy and easy-to-use tool.
The tool is compatible with Windows, and a method has been developed for Linux users as well. Additionally, for Windows users at least, the tool automates the HTC Dev bootloader unlocking process for people who don’t want to go through the hassle of doing it themselves. One click methods for the win.
