Default [Q] Android Wear App draning battery

Ever since I downloaded the app and paired my phone with my LG G Watch, I went from a full day's use to only 6 hours on my Oppo Find 7a. Its really frustrating. Tried resetting, redownloading and reinstalling to no avail. My phone even heats up now (something it doesn't normally do). I know with bluetooth and constant connection with the watch, battery life will take a hit but never expected it to be this much. Any one else?

As you said, bluetooth and constant connection would drain the battery life...

Not necessarily... I noticed only slight more battery drain running it on my S4

Oppo Find 7a must be defective, bluetooth takes very little battery life. I am thinking up until you had a bluetooth device you never turned it on, you finally turn it on and find the phone is defective.

My Note 3, I never turn off bluetooth off and I can not notice any battery drain.

Looked at the screen shop Android Wear is in some sort of wake lock.
Mine Android Wear is not even listed see Bluetooth at 3% but no Android wear.

You have some utility that maybe cause issue? I never use a battery conserving app they do not work.
or the device which I do not know may not be using 4.4?
