    Default How often do you charge your Gear?

    I am thinking of buying a Gear and I wanted to know if it needs to be charged often. Thanks for your comments.

    If I use my phone a fair bit during the day then every night.. But from 5am I still have 30% left at end of the day

    About the same here. After a full day I have 40% left. No big deal to put on the charger at night.
    My guess is that if you already wear a watch you will love the gear. If not... 50/50.

    I charge at night when I sleep. I usually have at least 60 percent left at the end of the day but still, it would be stupid not to charge overnight

    I charge it every night as the battery is at 30 to 40% by the end of the day.

    Every other day seems to work for me, I only charge devices as needed.
    I miss my friend Matt McQuinn he touched so many lives, and in the end gave his life to protect someone that he loved. I am proud to have known him, and of the choices he made when it mattered. You were a true hero.

    I have mine on for about 10 hours each day. Email( Corporate and Personal), text, take a picture or two, and pick up a few calls. Normal email load is 80-100 a day on a work day. I have the screen timeout set to 7 seconds and use multiple watch faces. Brightness set to 4.

    On a lower usage day like today, I just looked and I'm at 87% since breakfast this morning.

    The Gear lasts a full 2 work days without charging. Like any of our devices, the screen display will always be the biggest power hog.

    Just to add, it usually takes just 1-2 hrs to fully charge my GG.

    I'm usually around 30-60% remaining at the end of the day. I charge mine nightly.

    I'm in the 70s by the end of an average day. I could probably easily go 2 days without charging, but because I charge my Note 2 every night, I charge the Gear nightly as well. My problem is battery life on the Note 2 since the 4.3 update (and perhaps getting the Gear). Nowhere near as good as it used to be, which was spectacular.

    Bought it Friday & charged it. Started using it Saturday, but turn it off at night. It's Wednesday, & I have 8% left at 5:44 PM! I'll put it back on the charger for the first time tonight. I usually turn it on at 6AM & off by 10PM.

    I charge my Gear every night even though it really doesn't need to be.

    I probably use mine a lot less than others, but from having it a few days and playing with it, the battery life has been amazing. It's been off the charger for about 32 hours and I'm at 67%. I have only a few notifications being pushed, though, so I'm sure that helps a great deal.

    I charge mine nightly, but I got 3 days out of it with minimal use. 2 1/2 days seems like the norm for me though. I'm cool with that.

    I use my phone a lot during the day and my GG gets a lot of notifications. About 24 hours after a charge, I find the GG has about 45% charge. I usually put it to charge as I'm getting ready in the morning and it about 30 minutes to fully charge.

    My Gear lasts about 4 hours on a charge. I'm using it only for selected things. Still using my Pebble for everyday.

    Default Re: How often do you charge your Gear?

    After the last update I lose about 10% - 12% per 10 hour work day, set on vibrate max brightness on 5. I get 3 to 5 notifications per hour.
    I charge it about once or twice a week.
    Before the last update I would lose about 30% per 10 hour work day.
    I power it on at about 8 a.m every work day.

    I charge every night just because. Still, in a day I never go below 45 percent. Don't understand people who do everything they can to trash something if they can't get more than a whole day on a charge.. Just plug it in when you sleep.. If your getting 4 hours with little use on one charge then you have a defective watch.

    Default Re: How often do you charge your Gear?

    I charge mine nightly - some days when I use it extra hard (ESPN notifications, alot of Gmail, etc) I will put it on charger for about 30+ minutes in the middle of the day.
    It seems to me the charging is quite fast. For instance if the battery is around 20% and its on the charger at least 30 minutes the battery will already be at > 80%.
    I only wish I could get an extra charging cradle for the GG at a reasonable price. God forbid I lose the only one I have in carrying around or taking it to my girl friends house, etc.
    If the cradle gets lost my GG is literally a paper weight.
    Samsung has had it on backorder for several weeks and I can't find any locally. It would be nice if Best Buy had them in stock.
    Ebay and Amazon have them but for twice the listed price.

    5-6 hour light day uses maybe 20-25%. If your turn it off when you aren't using it at home it can last a long time.
