Yes but most eat a lot of battery in the process of cycles checking and displaying the battery status, I use pie controls that can instantly display the battery status and time, when I pull up the menus from any screen im in.

Do you mean pie controls installed on the gear let you see the battery level on the phone?

Sorry, No. Disregard, I read your question incorrectly, dont know of an app. that can do that, since my Gear always depletes it's battery before my phone, never looked.

I can appreciate the concern of battery consumption with such an app/widget but if it could be set to poll only when the gear screen is on OR better yet, when the button/widget was pressed, that would be ideal. Wish I was smart enough to make such a thing.

If you are using a custom launcher there are quite a few, you can use UCCW, Zooper or you could also find a battery widget on the playstore.

Otherwise tap your screen twice with two fingers and it will display your battery percentage if enabled in gear manager.



HELPFUL POST? HIT THANKS !

OR BETTER YET

I just double tap the screen with two fingers to quickly check battery level.

Thanks for the reply but I think there is some confusion as to what I'm after. I have UR Battery on the gear which gives me a widget already to display and see the battery level remaining on the gear itself. What I am after is a way to simply look at the gear to get a battery level reading somehow of the PHONE itself, not the gear.

PS: If I tap the screen twice, my screen turns off. I have this set up in apex and using "Screen Off" app I believe it's called. I'm thinking again though that you are referencing showing the Gear's battery level this way and not the phone's?

I use solo battery widget which displays a circular graphic with numerical % inside it. Works well
