Developers like to tinker and to explore tech boundaries, surely that must the reason that XDA developer biktor_gj has ported Android Wear to the Samsung Gear 2? This is a work in progress at this stage as it only boots into the OS with little functionality at the moment and no download currently available.

This move will be good for users that value the Google Android offering, but we are Tizen Experts don't find Android Wear that appealing (what a shocker), as the OS isn't that interesting and you don't get the benefit of standalone apps as well as taking a hit in the battery department. This work will not benefit anyone wanting Android Wear on the Gear S as there are different CPUs, so all work would have to be done from scratch for it.
