Default [Q] Gear 2 - S Health and notification question

I am getting the Gear 2 that will be paired with my T-Mobile Note 3 and have a couple of quick question:

1). Which built-in Note 3 app that CANNOT be frozen for the Gear 2 to function with the phone?
I froze certain built-in Samsung apps in the Note 3. Does the following needs to be UNFROZEN:
- ANT Hal Service
- ANT Radio Service
- ANT+ Plugins
- Mobeam Service Application
- S Health

I did NOT froze :Gear Manager"

2). I had Peeble watch before and there are many Peeble app that can forward ANY notifications, like Google Voice text message and 3rd party calendar. Does the Gear 2 have this capability also?

Well, turns out the Gear 2 is ONLY COMPATIBLE WITH 4.4.

My Note 3 is only 4.3 and have not desire upgrading to 4.4. Not sure why the Gear 2 requires 4.4... seeing Samsung own website stated it is compatible with Note 3, long before 4.4 is out for Note 3.

Mod, please delete this thread as I will be returning and not using the Gear 2 anymore.

Not true, I'm using the Gear 2 for a week now on 4.3 with no problems at all.
