I've heard about the gear working on the nexus 5 so it may work on aosp or cm roms.

I have the pebble smart watch. Love it. Does what I want it to. Last six days on a charge. Idk what all yer looking for. The pebble can't make calls, but it gives you any notification you want. I'd do some reading on the gear. It doesn't have very good reviews, and last I knew the gear only works on Samsung devices.

I have a Sony smartwatch that a friend gave me. It works just fine with the DNA.

I love my pebble. I have no desire to get a galaxy gear because I love it so much. That being said, afaik as long as you have root access you can make the galaxy gear work on any phone, you just need the right supporting apk's from touchwiz. That's how people have gotten it working on the nexus 5. I don't know how well it works though, my guess would be not as well as it does on a Samsung phone.
