Samsung Gear Application consists 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, whereas, the Wearable-side Widget can be developed with Tizen SDK for Wearable.

In addition, Samsung Accessory SDK is the necessary component for communicating between the Host-side Application and Wearable-side Widget.

For developing Samsung Gear Application, you need both of the Tizen SDK for Wearable and Samsung Accessory SDK. You can find more details on how to develop Gear Application in the 'Hello Accessory Developer's Guide' document below.
