How to get real apps running on the Samsung Galaxy Gear:

The Galaxy Gear ships with a "USB debug" checkbox in the settings. Check that box, hook it up to a computer, and it will be usable with ADB, the Android Debug Bridge. ADB will in turn allow you to fire up a command line and sideload whatever you want onto the Gear's 4GB of storage, running on Android 4.2.2 with an 800MHz processor and 512MB of RAM, so it can run real apps just like any other Android device. Considering that the original Android phones all had 528MHz processors and only 192MB of RAM, the Gear is a miniature powerhouse in comparison.

The demonstration video above shows Amadeo of  Arstechnica using CyanogenMod’s Apollo music app to “blast MP3s out of the crappy little speaker” as well as playing a game of the aforementioned Candy Crush. Finally, he uses MX Player to play a sequence from the final episode of Breaking Bad.
