Samsung Gear Dev Tool

Generally, Samsung Gear Apps consist of the Host-side Application (which runs on Android-based Samsung mobile devices) and the Wearable-side Widget (which runs on Tizen-based Samsung Gear devices). The Host-side Application can be developed in the common Android development environment. The Wearable-side Widget can be developed with the Tizen SDK for Wearable.

Additionally, the Accessory package, which can be found in the Samsung Mobile SDK, is the necessary component for communicating between the Host-side Application and Wearable-side Widget.
