Default Gear and 'Sleep as Android'

This is a generic question to Galaxy Gear users...

I have an app on my phone called 'Sleep as Android' that measures my sleep. It currently integrates with Pebble for better accuracy than laying your phone near you while you sleep.
A user posed a question to the developer of 'Sleep as Android' about developing the app to work with Galaxy Gear.
The response from the developer was that perhaps 'Sleep as Android' could be side loaded onto Galaxy Gear directly.

Has anyone here used 'Sleep as Android'?
Has anyone attempted to load this app directly to their Galaxy Gear?
Does it even sound doable???

I am not really interested in a Pebble watch. Pebble has poor reviews and does not appear to be even remotely appealing to me.
On the other hand, Galaxy Gear is something that I could see my self wearing and using.

I went ahead and gave it a try just for you!

I wasn't able to install it directly on the gear via the play store. Some error, so I side-loaded it by installing it on my phone first and using titanium backup's "send latest backup" feature. (you'll need titanium on your Gear as well to restore the backup)

Opens right up and appears to be running smoothly. Maybe I'll give it a go for some sleep tracking. Got a 14 day trial.

Oh, I'm using NULL_ ROM.

I guess you could side-load it using one of the other methods if you don't want to flash. (I've no clue about that stuff, however)

--update
The user interface is kinda tight on the tiny screen, but I haven't had any problems clicking on anything yet!

Dude, you are awesome(x2!).
If you use it during sleep, let me know how it does....
Am sure the sleeping/noise(snoring) graphs and stuff may be hard to read on such a small screen though.
There is an add-on to upload to cloud. I guess I could use THAT to see the graph details, etc..

Yea, I would be curious how this works myself. I suppose since the Gear has motion sensor, it should work for tracking sleep. The only concern I would have is battery drain. I know the app even warns of that and when I used to use this on my old Droid Razr Maxx, I would have it connected to the wall and stretched to the bed whilst on charge. Can't really do that with the goofy arse cradle system the gear has and still wear it.

Since it's meant to be ran on a phone laying next to you, you could just leave it cradled up next to you. I couldn't sleep with a watch on, anyway. End up rolling over and smacking my wife with it or something... Speaking of that, I wonder if it accommodates for two people in the same bed. Haven't really had a chance to play with it.

Lol! True, didn't think of that.
