Apple Watch OS 3 Jailbreak successfully demonstrated by FriendAppleTeam & Lookout hacker groups at Defcon 25 event. Here you can find the full presentation they have submitted during the event that explains all the possibilities that Jailbreaking Apple Watch allows to do. Redittor PanTovarnik initially created this thread at /r/jailbreak which you can follow and join in the discussion.
From the presentation, the team has mentioned that after Apple Watch Jailbreak lot of sensitive data can be accessed after installing tools like Frida and Radare. Ofcourse, it sounds scary and jailbreakers always risk their privacy to get more customization done to their device.
Many apple reviewers and fans believes, that jailbreak is almost dead and once iOS 11 released to public, there will be very less reasons to jailbreak iPhone or iPad.
About the Apple Watch Jailbreak, the team have demonstrated that it will be possible to access sensitive data like health and fitness data, call recordings, photos, cache memory area, calendars, contacts, emails, messages, GPS data, Microphone, Apple Pay and more. Any third party apps data that you have stored on your apple watch can be accessed as well.
For an initial stage, it sounds interesting that what developers can do with the apple watch once its jailbroken.
Obviously, people who love to customize third device will always consider jailbreaking their gadget. This allows them to get all new design changes, themes and some feature additions that apple store cannot deliver.
All these comes at the cost of security risks and battery drains. Lets wait for more months and see how these developers are utilizing the jailbreak for apple watch once its released officially.
