In case someone would like to see what the Gear Fit Manager can and will do to a Galaxy S5 battery, i have pictures.

Hope this issue will be resolved soon. The s5 have a great battery but it is pointless if it can never go to deep sleep. The irony is that the only program I know may help is greenify with the xposed module and S Health will crash on you as soon as xposed is installed. :sly:

the same issue was goign on with S4 ( I tested on both 4.3 and 4.4.2) , the fit manager was keeping the phone awake at 384Ghz and would not allow deep sleep! I have already returned it, since it was kinda pointless. My phones battery was at 30% miday when I normally have like 70% .

Well I heard and tested that at least Gear 2 Neo is better in heart rating rather than gear fit, isn't it?

Moreover gear manager doesn't drain the battery as gear fit manager does

Yeah so far it looks very promising - though the previous Gear Fit Manager was a bit random - 10% use one way, 24% another day. So for with the new update, it's not showing up in my top 10 battery drains at all. If this keeps up, I'll be stoked.

My Fit Manager experience has been like this:

Original Software on N3 running 4.3 = 29% battery
Original Software on N3 running 4.4.2 = 19% battery
Today's Updated Software on N3 running 4.4.2 = 9% battery
