    Default How is Android Wear impacting your phone battery life

    I am wondering...with all the notifications on your wrist are you using your phone less and getting a better battery life for your phone?

    Thanks

    for me, it's impacting it in a good way. The phone stays in my pocket more and the screen is used less. I have several bluetooth devices, so bluetooth has been on since day one, the ware app does not seem to consume much battery

    Same experience here. Looking at my battery stats for the day (about 16-17 hours since plugged in, G Watch connected the entire time). My screen has used 35% of the battery. Bluetooth has used about 4%, including listening to music over BT for about 20 minutes this afternoon. The Android Wear app isn't even registering. For what it's worth, battery level on the watch is at 45%.

    The second screen (Watch) saves a lot of battery life for me. Screen consumption went down from 30% to 10%.

    Bluetooth is not even shown in stats so thats a very low consumption even throughout a whole day.

    That's good to hear. It would suck if having a smartwatch paired via bluetooth ran down the battery of the phone.

    Bad battery life for me on my OnePlus One. The UID wakelock (for the BT connection between the phone and watch) is at the top of the list in Wakelock detector and killing my otherwise awesome battery life. I have a Moto360.

    Android wear itself isn't impacting battery life but Bluetooth is impacting negatively as expected.
