@Bornokjudak: What phone do you use your Gear with? And if Samsung, you use the original Samsung Firmware or some custom ROM?

Try reinstalling gear manager form scratch. Had the same problem after upgrading.

I found out it was the proximity sensor causing the issues.

If I turn on the "auto lock" functions in the gear manager settings it destroys the battery. Turn it off and it goes for four days!

Is there somewhere that has a list of the tizen apps available for the Gear?

Wiping from the recovery screen didn't work for me. I don't have Auto Lock on, either. I'd also tried using an earlier version of Gear Manager as suggested in this other thread, but no joy. Then I wiped from recovery and tried with the older version again, but I'm still getting a drain of 10% an hour. I wish I could figure this out.
