Keeping your Moto 360 alive while charging

If you are developing using the Moto 360 and debugging over bluetooth, you'll notice the battery plummeting quickly.

If you put the watch on a QI charging pad, the Moto 360's charging screen kicks in, and you can no longer do anything on the watch, although if you launch your app via Android Studio, it will run.

If you still want to use your watch while it is charging, root it, and disable Motorola Connect on the watch using:

adb -s 'localhost:4444' shell
$ su
# pm disable com.motorola.targetnotif

This works for me, although I am sure it stops plenty of other things from working, so only do this on a development device, and at your own risk.
