Oh no.... I was getting really excited until I saw Tizen OS....

Well, I can't really judge yet so I'll wait until release and test it out before I can truely judge Tizen as a watch OS.

The biggest problem with using Tizen OS is that it will likely only work with Samsung Galaxy smartphones whereas Android Wear powered devices should work with ANYTHING that runs android 4.3 or higher
 

I'm guessing that's what this is - a trial balloon to see if Tizen can stand on its own feet. If it can't, it's still using an ARM processor so they can switch it to Android Wear. They were unsure enough about Tizen that they pulled it from their smartphones. But they don't want to write it off entirely without giving it a public trial. So a lower-profile device like a smartwatch is a good test platform.
