Default [Q] Gear 1 update to Tizen and Gear Manager Apps

I have the Samsung S4 Model SGH-1337M - Android version 4.4.2

- Just updated my Samsung Galaxy Gear 1 to Tizen through Samanug Kies with no problem.
- Samsung Gear manager was also updated to version 2.1.14052101.
- The Samsung Apps version is 14041504.21.032.0

A coleague of mine just updated his Galaxy Gear 1 but he owns a Samsung S3 running Android 4.4.2
He is also running the same version of Gear Manager.

Problem Description:
When comparing upgrades, I noticed that he installed new apps on his Gear1 watch that I cannot see on my Gear Manager Samsung Apps.
We compared all software versions and they are all the same.

His Gear Manager showed an additional category that is not on my category list and a lot of apps that I do not see in my list.
For example I do not have the finance group of apps and apps in every sections are missing and not the same.

Please see attached screen shots from both phones.

Has anyone noticed the same behavior. Is there a reason not to see or download apps?

@nkgear the S4 doesn't yet link well with Gear 1 Tizen
If you are rooted change your build.prop in /system/app
Search in Gear General thread, it's discussed several times

What a fu.... sh.. !!?? Why the hell they do that??
Faked my GT-i9502 to a GT-i9300 via build.prob and now I have the new Category Finance in the Gear Manager.
Downloaded my Simple Calculator
This is really stupid.
Thanx for the hint.

The same here. I haven't rooted my Galaxy, so have to wait for Samsung to solve this crazy problem?
SAMSUNG SOLVE IT.
