Developers hack Apple WatchOS2 to run native apps

Developers Steve Troughton-Smith and Adam Bell, with the assistance of saurik, have managed to hack watchOS II to run fully-native apps.
Troughton-Smith announce a video last night showing proof of the accomplishment.

In the demo below, the team managed to induce a totally interactive 3D object running on the Apple Watch hopped-up by Apple’s SceneKit framework.

The hack ought to additionally give a ray of hope for people trying forward to AN Apple Watch jailbreak. This, of course, isn't a jailbreak itself, and therefore the trio aren’t giving any details on the hack. however simply the very fact they were ready to skirt Apple’s limitations is nice news.
