There appear to be a few of us United-Statesians who are having this problem, Jim. I experienced this issue on my Note 3 when i prematurely flashed Tizen, and another user in response to a thread I posted a week back noted that he experienced the issue as well.
At least you can rest assured that it is not just your phone or Gear.
I even flashed the XAR version of NF1 today, and still no luck.
Oddly, though, I was able to see the apps in the store for a short period of time, when the app store notified me of an update to watch styler. I've been able to reproduce the effect by installing an old version of watch styler, waiting a few minutes (anywhere from 15 to an hour), and then going into the app store for the update. For some reason, when the gear app store sees the need for an update, it allows you to view all of the apps on the store. Not sure if it works with updates to any other apps, but I don't see a reason that it woiuldn't. An odd workaround, I know, but it may work for you as well.
