I am having the same massive battery drain problem, but with my Nexus 5 using the Moto 360. I don't have a problem with the watch battery life. But I certainly do on my phone. At work I don't use the phone (or watch) and the phone normally drains about 8% or something. Now that I have the 360 and Google Wear, my phone battery is more like 72% when I get home and almost all of that is shown as being used by "Google Wear".
This is a Nexus 5. The two are always within about 3 feet of each other. I have Google Now OFF. I have not installed any "apps" on the 360. I rebooted both this morning as a test, made no difference. Four days in a row of this now (since I got the 360). So then I tried to factory reset the watch and resinstalled Wear on the Nexus. No change.
As an example: Today I demoed the watch to two people. I did almost nothing else the entire day. I had no notifications at all. Almost 10 hours off the charger. I made no calls. I had no texts. I didn't even wake the phone AT ALL. 20% of my phone battery disappeared and 65% of it was ANDROID WEAR! 55m and 15s of CPU usage on WEAR???!!!?!?!! Why???? What could possibly justify that much load/power?
(Oh, and the watch only used 25% of its charge during the same period)
