Gear 2 Neo ROM compatability

So I have SGH-1337M S4 running CM11 which so far I haven't found a way to connect to my Gear 2 Neo. As I understand it the watch is only compatible with TocuhWiz. So does that mean that it would only work on the stock Samsung OS or any TouchWiz based ROMs will suffice? Anyone care to make a list of ROMs that the Gear 2 works with that aren't TouchWiz? Or is there a plan in motion to put custom ROM on to the watch itself and just forget the whole TouchWiz thing in general?

Installing the gear manager is the easy part. For me it crashes all the time saying my device is not supported. What I came to understand is No Touchwiz = No Gear. I wish there was a ROM that was similar to CM but with touchwiz. Any ideas?

I'm running tri-force Rom 5.3 on my galaxy S4 from Sprint. I'm not able to connect it either, I've tried reinstalling most of the Samsung apks to try and get it to work but no luck so far. Any suggestions?
