    Roughly 1.75 to 2.0 hours of streaming music to a BT speaker took the battery down from 68% to 1% (critical). Dang, had no idea this was going to happen.

    What about you guys? Does music streaming for a couple of hours knock off more than 50% of battery life of your G2's battery? The speaker was within a foot of the watch and so was the phone.

    Happens to me too under those circumstances - I believe it is the BT in the phone - same on my Tablets - very inefficient.

    I can stream bluetooth from my note 2 for hours without sucking the battery dry to the tune of 30 percent per hour

    Recharged the Gear 2 to 100%, resumed streaming music via BT, and sure enough, it reduces battery life by exactly 20% per hour. Silly me expected to be able to stream for at least 6 hours. I listen to music frequently and thought the watch would be an excellent way to stream, but using this much juice, I'll have to go back to using something else.

    This is a silly question, but are you telling me that you are streaming music from your phone to your watch? Hence causing the watch to drain power hour at 20%?

    NO! Streaming from watch to BT speaker. One of the features is there is room for quite a few music files on the watch and it's designed to be used with BT speakers. But if it's going to lose 20% per hour, THAT IS NOT COOL.

    And your bluetooth speaker uses bluetooth low energy (v4.0)?

    No idea. It's a jambox

    So that's probably the problem. Regular bluetooth requires too much energy.
