I'm in a similar boat as you in that I have the same devices. Thanks for the tip on turning off the physical keyboard, that is a huge help. I'd love any ideas you have about improving the rest of the outstanding issues (pedometer, weather, etc). If you've learned anything new, would greatly appreciate your insight.

The problem I'm having is when my Gear is connected it seems to screw up the Physical Keyboard. I lose access to the keyboard in all my other apps. In Language & Input my Physical Keyboard is listed as SA_MUSIC_REMOTE_CONTROL
Easy Fix - Just Turned Off Physical Keyboard , appears it was trying to use the GG as a keyboard via Bluetooth. All is well. Working with very little pain on the Google Edition S4.
Now I just need to see if I can find the Weather Widget and Pedometer
