Default Poor battery life?

Can't say that I agree here. Maybe because I'm running fOmey's awesome rom, but the last thing I'm thinking of is how "bad" the batt life is.

Easily get 2 days. You'll see plenty of others around here reporting similar. Even with stock. Battery life increased with more recent versions of firmware and especially gear manager. And last longer with motion setting disabled

Are you using custom faces with watch styler or one of the stock faces? I think WS eats more battery but I find the many faces worth it. I plug in my phone every night so I have no issues with charging the watch

watchstyler - especially if using second hand drains battery

people are complaining about gear's battery life and tells us about how great 'pebble' is. truth is, it sucks balls. either you are getting a smartwatch (gear) or a watch with smart extensions (pebble).
i don't see an issue with the gear's battery life, as the things i can do on it out beats any other "smart"watch.

The problem is most of the"professional" reviewers have probably only used it for a few hours and then only when it first came out, it's a shame they aren't more diligent.

That's a fair question. No, I'm not using any custom faces.

I am completely stock and on newest firmware. I must say battery life is awesome for me. Using stock watch face with weather and could easily get 3 days out of my gear. Although I charge every night I am only draining about 40% from 330 am to 930 pm. Very very happy with this.
