Android Wear APK Tools:

A GUI application which allows you to install any APK straight to your watch (via adb) or uninstall any non-protected package directly. Much more convenient than doing it through the adb command line.

How to use:

Download Link: HERE

Windows:
Unzip Android-Wear-APK-Tools.zip, and run Android-Wear-APK-Tools.exe

Linux:
Run the following command in terminal, and then open AndroidWearAPKTools.py
Code:
sudo apt-get install python-tk
Mac:
Install Python from here, then run AndroidWearAPKTools.py

Connect your watch to your computer, enable ADB Debugging on your phone and your watch, and make sure ADB and the drivers are set up on your computer.

Apps that work and are actually uesufll IMHO:
-terminal emulator
-qqplayer (warning, sideloading any video player will break wear mini launcher if you use that, contacted the developer and hoping he will fix it)
-MiXplorer (not in play store, from xda, crashes on exit but otherwise works great, much easier to use as a file explorer than es file explorer because it has list view
-es file explorer (I use it for the music player, text editor and to install apps in one click-can only be done with root-because it is kinda hard to install apps via terminal)
-astro bluetooth module (read my guide thread in the general forum if you want to find out what I use it for, might also help you

Also you can try apps but they will most probably not work if they use any kind of holo theme because AFAIK wear has holo removed.

I have a oneplus one and for some reason it will not allow the store version of android wear to install. Will this apk do the trick?
