Default Bluetooth Tethering - Terrible battery life

I tried using Tethering with the latest Null and wow, I was losing 1% every minute, even when it was on sleep.

Did I do something wrong or is that normal for the Gear?

I haven't had much (if any) difference. I'd suspect there is an app downloading lots which would use more battery

I had a similar issue when I first started BT as well. My phone was losing battery at a rapid pace as well. Rebooting both devices solve all issues for me.
