Thank you so much, I completely missed that "hidden" page.

@Sichroteph No problem! There's quite a few hidden settings like this in sonys apps. It's always worth having a search for them.

If you are interested I spent a couple of hours building a no battery draining Tasker app that lock your phone when the smartband is too far. (root required)

It can also detect the day or night Mode for special phone actions (sound mute, dim screen light, Airplane Mode etc...)

Very pleasant to use with my lock free phone and still feel protected

With location off. TERRIBLE.

I had both my Smartband and SmartWatch SW2 paired and battery life was still great. No complaints from me and I'm a heavy user.

Just an idea, if you were sleeping then the smartband logger was the only little activity in your phone. (25% of nothing is nothing)

still almost double drain and wake every 5 and a half min from sleep. Not sure the band is worth it - for me. I just enjoy being able to have it in my bag/backpack and getting vibrations for calls/notifications. oh well. not the place to rant about functionality.
