Btw, I upgraded GM to xxx401 and I am not using mpogr's apk. All stock.

Did you remove your google account while the watch was connected with phone?

This helped me with my Gear 2 and the battery last much longer. Thanks.
I have the same issue with Gear 1 that is flashed to Tizen and not yet rooted. Will this work around work in Gear 1 as well?

Applicable to Galaxy Gear S also
This thread was helpful to me. I thought I would add that I had the same problem with my Galaxy Gear S and Note 4. Saumsung was suggesting I send the device in for repairs when the batter would go from 100% to off in 4 hours. It was even charging significantly slower. The battery would only discharge at a normal rate when bluetooth was turned off. After clearing the data from the gear management application the device went back to more reasonable battery consumption.

Note: I'm only using the installations and firmware that came directly from Samsung on my device.

I'm Paired to my OnePlus One. I did a phone wipe and a watch wipe, and the drain was just horrible.

Getting a lot of these in my log.
