To install better battery stats on the watch install the app normally like you would. After that go to your phone which has BBS installed and navigate to /system/priv-app and grab the BBS "base.apk." On the watch you must place it in the same folder /system/priv-app with a file manager and then reboot.

It's almost pointless because you can't see anything unless you change the "thumbnail size" and "medium font size" to the lowest values under settings -> customize views.

At least you can see percentages and export the stats.

Awesome, thanks.

I don't have time atm, but I will def f up my watch this weekend. I thought the Snapdragon 400 was a quad core, and realize that we only get to use 1 of the cores. I wonder how things would run if you woke them all up for "ond" ? battery drain? faster wake time?

I'm very anxious to try these scripts out and get the most out of my watch.

According to BBS I get about 3.3% drain while idle. That is with everything greenified and only using it for notifications. While I was using it for gps and playing music (music controls were up on my watch) It was at about 5.5%/hour, still not too bad.

Things do run really smooth though. There isn't really any GUI lag at all. Browsing the web with Wear Internet Browser works perfect and the pages render quickly. Very cool

Tilt screen to turn on switched off, Preview cards switched off and brightness at 1.

At night I keep it on to use as a sleep tracker app and switch off Screen always on.

Update: after getting horrible battery life in the past few weeks, I'm getting today around 24 hours with Ambient Mode On & Card Previews & Tilt.

My guess is probably an update in the Google Search and Maps App. And maybe, because I blocked the Google Messanger SMS app.

My frist atempt with the Nexus 4 and Brazil LG Gwatch (LG GWatch is a bit different here);
LG Nexus 4 has a very poor batery, and with the bt always on ... never reach a 24h!!!
Now I have a Sony T3, "stamina" and phone reach 48h without the watch and 30~36h always on...
With the stck ROM in T3, with the stamina mode ON, when the phone reach 30% they will cut BT and other things to a minimal uses, is very useful when you forgot the charger, but the "watch" will stay dead like stone!!!!
