Default Missing Apps Upon Restart

i installed a calc.apk manually via adb push. i see the app in my app list on the watch, however when i restart the app is gone. i also have nova launcher installed, and can see the calc app is actually still installed, it's just not showing anymore on the touchwiz launcher. is there something i can uncheck, or check from my phone that is screwing it up from a sync or something?

** i actually tested turning off the bluetooth on my phone so it wouldn't pair with watch. and i rebooted phone after re-pushing the calc file. the file stays in my app list. so somewhere something is unsyncing information from phone to watch when it pairs. i just dont know where to look.

***further testing - i installed gear manager v1.6.132701 - phone said i had to update to use samsung gear manager. i did. as long as i dont show the device *paired in samsung manager, all side loaded apps seem to work fine. if i pair it in manager, poof the app disappears until i disable pair and restart watch.
