Default Battery life while bluetooth tethered!?

Hi guys.

Just wondering - how long are you supposed to get while the watch is tethered to your phone?

Mine is on nulrom v20 - which is great!

When tethered to my note3 - for notifications (email, phone etc) the battery lasts about 5 hours at the very most.

Is this right?

If so - not too impressed really - pretty pointless if the battery wont last a whole working day......


Let me know guys?

How about using tethering when you need it ? Why do you need tethering on your gear constantly anyway ? Of coarse your going to get bad battery life..



HELPFUL POST? HIT THANKS !

OR BETTER YET

I get over 8 hours which lasts me a full day of work. Are you using any CPU management program like setcpu?

I'm getting amazing battery life BT tethered with Null 20 as long as I leave the wrist motion turn-on disabled (with that on mine also dies in 5 hours)

I had mine tethered for 12 hours today (I don't need to, but I was just trying it out syncing gmail etc.), and still had 86% left on the battery readout.

I've used tethering since it was available. It hardly had any impact on the watch. My phone battery on the other hand got smashed

If you are connected just to receive your notification, as a standard gear would, then your battery should last over a day. You probably need to adjust your voltage settings to solve this. I have mine set to max 500Mhz. Then it seems to last like a stock gear.

If you are connected and using Bluetooth tether, which will give you access to browsing, playstore ect on the gear, then your battery will not last at all. Then your gear and phone should theoretically suffer.
