It's hard to tell, because the frequency of the sync doesn't seem to be constant. It's probably about once in 1-2 hours.

I see. Anyway thanks a lot for this fix. I was not using the watch anymore because of the battery issue. Now it is usable again. Really great work.

Found my root cause. Had over 9,000 duplicate entries in my corporate contact list. Once deleted, now I can go all day with battery at 90%.

Running latest version from Samsung.

WantedBy=multi-user.target
push this file to /etc/systemd/system
change mod to 644
enable service
start service
Code:
c:\sdb root on
c:\sdb push kill_contacts.service /etc/systemd/system
c:\sdb shell
sh-3.2#chmod 644 /etc/systemd/system/kill_contacts.service
sh-3.2#systemctl enable /etc/systemd/system/kill_contacts.service
sh-3.2#systemctl start kill_contacts.service
check running service using :
Code:
journalctl -u kill_contacts.service
Hi wiedz, sorry to bothering you I'm very new to this but how do you create kill_contacts.service file?
thanx

Hi, Can I know the last version (Version Number if possible) of Gear Manager that worked with the modded GoProviders.APK Mate?
I'm on Galaxy Note 3, with Gear 1 (Null)

Thanks!
