A little update here.

I tried the full factory reset in recovery on theach gear but it's still exactly the same. I think I'll load nf1 onto it and see what happens.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. Much love.

Well I've tried three factory wipes, four gear manager updates and two Tizen firmware updates and still get 18 hours max from 100% to 0% with zero notifications.

I've found one thing.

If I turn off the bluetooth on my S3 I get 8 days out of the gear as a 'watch only'. Turning on bluetooth severely drains the gear.

Maybe a factory reset on the S3 could help? By updating the gear it only adds patches to the initial Tizen firmware and isn't a complete flash unless there is a way to total reflash the gear?

I'm determined to get to the bottom of this. It was perfect under android!

But the weird thing is I could get three days with Android!

Eight hours after taking it off 100% charge I have 50% and not one notification on it and it was checked once for 20 seconds for time.

Grrrrrr...
