    I have no idea how things work on a smartwatch, but I would imagine you can uninstall it like any other app???

    If you sideloaded Nova Launcher on the GG, presumably you did it with ADB via the adb install command. Do the same but this time use the adb uninstall command.

    You are far better reading existing threads on xda, than asking here.

    Wondershare MobileGo allows you to add & remove apps from your Gear.

    If Nova was installed properly, being moved to /system/app, you cannot use Wondershare to remove it.

    @op - did you do a full install? With moving the apk from /data/app to /system/app, while changing the permissions for /system/app back and forth? If so, you need to use Root Explorer, or any other file manager you used for the installation, to go into /system/app and delete the apk.

    Otherwise, if it's still sitting in your /data/app, you can manually delete it using the same file manager.

    If you have not moved the app using root, then grab the Nova Settings and drop it on uninstall. It will uninstall it.

    There is no grab and drop to uninstall on the Gear. If you do it while running Nova and being in it, it wont do anything.

    The proper way to remove it, is to mount the apps folder, while not running Nova, and deleting the Nova apk (that's what I did, when I decided I don't like it and want to go back to stock).
