Could this be ported to work on the gear?

As soon as I heard about it the first thing I did was to search if anyone had given it consideration.

I just ordered a Gear for the Modding ability (and one to sell) and this would be very cool.

Seeing as how they are aready planning on releasing the SDK to developers, I dont see why this wouldn't be possible. Google wants this on as many devices as they can get to expand the ecosystem of custom apps, to include thier own AWD Google Play.

Alright, well first this is running Android 4.4.2 not 4.2.2 like the gear. If that issue was gone it would be possible.

I already have the "watchface" app running on a Nexus 5. http://i.imgur.com/waaU8Y1.png

Other than the API issue it seems like it would be fairly easy.

This I am interested in, is there enough source and resources to port Android Wear to the Galaxy Gear and bring it up to 4.4.2?

Hope so But doesn't that depend on whether they release a sort of Nexus watch too?

Btw Google announced that they are working with Samsung too. Makes you wonder why Samsung is also releasing a Tizen Watch...
