Hi,
I have a Macbook Pro Retina 2015 running High Sierra. Gear Watch Designer crashes on startup in the same way as others have noted previously.
I have uninstalled Java 9 and installed 8.151 as recommended in previous posts. Also uninstalled and reistalled GWD as well.
I'm no expert at editing plist files but have done so (shown below) following Frank's instructions. This doesn't seem to be working. Can someone please help me amend so that it does work. 
Please feel free to change directly in the text below so I can copy it directly back into the plist file. I think I've copied the right bit.
Thanks
Andrew

Just tried the following with no luck as well:

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks so much! I've finally managed to get it working. Even managed to design, build and deploy my first watch face successfully. 
Now I just need to learn some of the finer points of the software. It feels a bit like the first time I was exposed in Photoshop in terms of the degree of complexity.
Hopefully Samsung will continue to support it. I have a Gear Sport and am keen to use AOD which is currently not working on 1.5.1.
Thanks to everyone for your support.
Cheers from New Zealand
