Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it.

ThemeX Extracts Icons, Wallpapers, and Docks from Launcher Themes
Have you ever downloaded a launcher theme just for one of the included wallpapers? Don’t feel bad; we all have. Now thanks to ThemeX by XDA Forum Member redphx, we can choose the items we like— such as icons, wallpapers and docks—to our SD cards without having to manually poke around the theme’s .apk file.
The tool works with GO Launcher, ADW Launcher, and EX themes. To get started, you simply install the theme you wish to extract items from, select which items you wish to extract, and ThemeX does the rest. After you have taken what you want, you can uninstall the theme to free up storage space on your device.
Future revisions of ThemeX are aimed at supporting LP Launcher and GO Locker themes. In the words of the developer:
You don’t have to install GO Launcher EX or ADW Launcher EX to use this app.
How to use:
1. Install GO Launcher/ADW Launcher Theme that you want to extract items from.
2. Open ThemeX
3. Select theme
4. Select items you want to extract, then press save.
Continue on to the application thread to get started
