Pebble Battery Drain on Phone?

I know that the Pebble only uses 5-10% of the phone's battery because of Bluetooth, but how much battery will the Pebble app, Pebble Notifier, and like three other Pebble apps use? Will they use minimal battery life (about 2-5%?

Thanks!

P.S. I'm on a Samsung Galaxy S4.

Even less than 2-5% in my experience. I don't find them in my usage stats

I haven't seen it in my battery stats either using a N5. Even if it does take a bit of battery, remember that you're most likely going to be looking at your phone less and the constant lock/unlock should improve your battery.

This thread may be old, but I just came in to say that this comment is very true. Based on your kernel's governor settings (that throttle the CPU) you'll save a serious amount of battery even before considering the screen will be on less often.

With my N5, I have lots of awakes from Pebble app (v2.4 beta) which drains the battery of the smartphone. I'm using Dalvik because ART has a bug with the bluetooth with lots of awakes. Can anyone help me, please?

Looks like Pebble app is preventing the phone going into deep sleep though

I've had a pebble for 4 months and haven't had it show up on my list in battery stats. That's using the pebble app, pebble notifier and canvas. Even using a watchface from canvas that shows weather and battery info doesn't cause a drain. And I wear my pebble 10+hrs a day.

I don't know, probably there's something strange with Pebble App and Android 4.4.2. Who notice this problem can please help us, providing the full list of watchapps and watchfaces installed?

Same here. I have 4.4.2 and Pebble services don't even make on this battery usage list.
