I get about 30% left by the time I go to bed. Good for 24 hours minimum for me. I'm a heavy user screen on, etc. Anything less than a day would be painful. A day I can live with.

I've managed to squeeze out two days of use out of a single charge, without an always on screen. I get about 4 calls per day, Google Now nav to and from college, hangouts, facebook and twitter use throughout the day. Oh and I'm also using Gohma.

I have Always On disabled, with brightness at 6 max. Woke up the screen throughout the day 100+ times to check time and notifications or reply to texts, and did 10 minutes navigation. My heaviest usage so far. After 13 hours I have 66% battery remaining.

I use RunKeeper for my running activity. Apparently, it really eats up the battery, probably because it stays on the whole time. I'm at the office almost 3 hours later (it's 10:40am), and my watch battery is down to 42%. Yikes.

Run keeper does at it fast. It is because it leaves screen on. You will still be able to go all day.

Yes, I agree. I've noticed no appreciable difference in battery use and my G watch is connected to my Nexus 5 24x7.

I get 30-40% on a full day usage with screen always on and brightness at 6.

BTW, how do I get Runkeeper to start the timer without having to use my phone?

So over the past two days the battery on my G Watch has taken a nose dive. Before I would be around ~40-50% at the end of the day, 6:30am-9:00pm. Now it is dead by noon. As I site here typing it is at 6% and I took it off the charger at 6:45. I have barely used it, maybe 3 texts and 2 email notifications.

What the hell happened to this thing?
