This is what I used on my US Gear. Works great!

Use Odin 3.09
Put Gear into Download mode and connect to PC
Unzip the file you downloaded then put in the AP section of Odin
Flash and wait for it to finish

This is all I did on my Gear and my girlfriends Gear to get Tizen. Loads better than Android IMO. Loads more battery life and the UI is better. Just a all around improvement.

It cannot be done on Tizen like @dd323 says, at least not now. If you were still on the null rom, there was a thread that discussed this. But not as easy as on the phone of course, the watch is actually quite limited in terms of true usability in part due to its very small operating area.
