So, I managed to sideload apps, just they crash once run


firmware: 4.4w


Enable usb debugging on watch


Download and install wondershare mobilego


Connect watch to pc and manually install Samsung composite adb drivers


Open android wear app on phone


Open mobilego


Accept debug request to watch on phone (may need to disconnect and reconnect from pc several times)


Install apk

all apps and launchers seem to crash. Guess it's time to learn how to use logcat... Probably something to do with how wear interacts with android apps

I have side loaded root explorer and system panel and both work pretty good. Need root access to really do anything with root explorer. Going to try other apps later tonight.
