Yes, there is a security patch for the Apple Watch now. It fixes 13 different vulnerabilities. At least one of the vulnerabilities (CVE-2015-1093) can be used to execute arbitrary code. But not all of the vulnerabilities are "cutting edge". We also got an ICMP redirect issue (CVE-2015-1103) and of course SSL issues that are addressed by disabling old ciphers (FREAK vulnerability) and updating the list of trusted CAs.
The Internet of Things certainly does get a lot of attention this year, and I think rightfully so. I consider web gateways/routers a prime example, and just to make that point, here the top 10 attacks against our web application honeypot:
25700 GET / HTTP/1.1\r\n
Two of our top ten URLs are attacking exclusively devices. So better make sure you are patched as well as it gets, and try to avoid exposing the admin interface to the public.Defending Web Applications Security Essentials - SANS Security West 2019
