Well, I tried and tried. Tried all the apk's, didnt work. Tried downloading Gear Manager on my father's S5. Worked that way. Copied it from his phone, used ES File Explorer, copied the app to Google Drive then downloaded it to my Nexus 6. The app loaded, would search, but never find it.

Before I return it, any other way to get it to work, besides rooting? Which I dont really have any interest in.

Thanks.

Did bypass the Gear Manager part by tapping the Gear S watch icon, but when I clicked on notifications on the watch, would always say that the bluetooth wouldnt connect or their was a problem with it. Bummer.

You should return it as quickly as possible, none of the Samsung Gear line is compatible with any other phones besides Samsung ones. And even with Samsung it isn't compatible with all models, I'm not even sure they have a stable Root to make it work with other phones. I haven't checked myself.
