    Thought some of your Gear owners may be interested. I used the method found here for finding and loading apps to the Gear.

    Right now I'm using Smart Launcher, and have installed Google keyboard, Alarm Clock Plus, ColorNote, MultiWindow Calculator, Holo Icons, MX Player, and Temple Run 2. Will play around with some others through the week.

    I'm using Smart Launcher since it's the only Launcher I've found that keeps a clock on the Home Screen. Widgets don't seem to work at all with any Launcher. The only minor issue I have now is that the side button takes me back to my Home Screen instead of locking the watch face. All notifications still work.

    That's pretty cool. How's the battery life with the changes?

    How is battery life
    I'm getting my gear soon and want to do this. Hope I can figure it out on my own. I wonder what the battery is like too, especially playing temple run.
