Hi to all

What really bothers me is the charging time. from 20% to 100% took more than 2 hours.
can someone tell me what specifications have your charger?

Thanks

I never run out of battery on mine so doesn't bother me how long it takes. I charge it every night

Update helping?
Just got my live yesterday. A new update loaded pretty fast.

I hear that this version of android wear has greatly improved battery life, has anyone seen evidence of a change?

I have not noticed any positive difference in battery life since the update.

Thumbs up
Loosing 2% battery in one hour. These are my settings:

Watchface: Skymaster Pilot Watch Face
Ambient mode: on
Display on at movement: off
Step counter: off
Google Now: off
Brightness: 5
Notifications: 10 each day
Usability each day: 15 hour, at night off or flight mode

So I have to charge my Gear Live every 3 days. Great

Screen always on is the better solution for me, because screen off and movement on sets my screen on to often because of much arm movements and drains battery more.

I use my Gear Live with my iPhone and it dies within 6-7 hours. I tried all optimal solution such as switch off always on, mute notification, reduce brightness, switch off google now, etc. Nothing works.
However, when I unpair the watch from my phone, the charge lasts for more than 24 hours. So what's the use of smart watch when am not able to pair it with my phone?
My iphone on the other hand stays solid. No noticeable battery drain when i connect my watch.

Suggestion please.

Hi,

I have the same behaviour when paired with an Iphone (5s). No drain problem when paired with an android device.
Don't understand (i have tried to disable what i can).
So, any idea are welcome.

I had almost the same issue with my watch, but took about 20% battery to just pairing my watch up with my phone (i was trying to pairing it up with BT rather than using android wear app) took 3 ~ 4 resets to just get it paired up.
i unplugged my watch at midnight last night and its 14:13 and i still have 60% battery.

Cud u please let me know the app you used to sync your watch and iPhone? Is it Aerlink or some other app? And did it require full watch reset? Were you able to download additional watch faces?
