Hi,
I just bought GEAR 2 NEO this weekend and could not get more than 12 hours
battery drains fast, I already recharge it all night with the same result.

I really appreciate any suggestions, I have the galaxy note 3 connected all the time via bluetooth to the watch, the battery on the smartphone is working fine...

Sorry to hear that.

There have been a few reports that performing a factory reset fixes that type of battery drain.

DONATE TO ME
Mine lasts for three to four days easily...unless I use S Voice to reply to texts. Then it lasts like three to four hours. Has anyone else seen this problem with the Neo?

hi, I just received a new Galaxy Gear 2 Neo, charged for 6 hours, 100%
Installed some apps including Watch Styler,
battery lasted only 7 hours
I have CUSTOM ROM X-NOTE VERSION 18, maybe is a rom problem.... I will flash a stock rom this night and check what happens tomorrow...

I also have XNote installed. You should first update the Gear app as well as the Gear 2 Neo. When you're done updating, perform a factory reset on the watch. That'd do the job. Battery life is 3 days for me.

Hi,
I already tried factory reset with no success...but

I just installed a new ROM Omega v21 and turned off the auto screen on feature, installed many apps, watch styler and 20 watch faces, notification enabled for 10 apps aprox, currently I had 88% battery after 5 hours of heavy use!

The watch updated automatically, but I had to reinstall all apps, including calcs, games, calendar, todo list, cnn, appy geek, chaos control, gear chess, google tasks, timer, news republic, daily expense, simple calc, news reader, my notes, just write and easyly Do, matrix clock, etc...

Maybe I found a cure for my case....
