    Cool Longer battery life?

    Although it's neat that you can change wallpaper and different color i find the battery sucks on the device. Best to choose a solid black since then I've had my fit without charging for 3 days solid even my notification is one. Also at night time turn off the blue tooth on the gear fit obviously you won't need while you're sleeping.

    I can get 4 - 5 days with a color background. I used to get 2 days until I turned off the feature that wakes my fit every time I move my wrist.

    yeah sometimes it doesn't even work when I do move my wrist. I hate having to hit a button though to power this thing on. Why not have a double tap on the screen to wake?

    Yes this would be a nice feature.

    id imagine there will be a gear fit 2 at some point.
    maybe more compatible with non Samsung devices would be a start.

    I'm not getting good battery life at all. I changed my background from a colorful one a couple of days ago and now have a black background with a couple of pink hearts which I don't think should make a big difference. I just reduced screen on from 30 secs to 15. Dropped Twitter notifications and a couple of other apps I don't really use from my notifications. I may take off the hand gestures, but that's one of the nice functions and really cool features.

    I charged it up over night to 100%, this morning I took it off the cradle at 8:00 a.m. and now at 2:30 p.m. its at 41% in one day. This is my only area of dissatisfaction with the watch, mind you I brought it for the notifications and alerts so I have only used the heart monitor which seems to work fine.

    When I called Samsung today about it they told me to take it into BestBuy for a reset or return it to them for evaluation. I really don't want to do either, I was hoping for a quick fix with a tweak here or there.

    Btw: Since I was told that Bluetooth is a drain I downloaded "AutoBluetooth" app from the Play store. I set Bluetooth to turn off at 11:00 pm and back on at 6:00 a.m. on the cell phone app to save battery life overnight when I'm not using it.

    UPDATE:
    Changed the setting from 30 seconds screen out to 10 seconds and that solved the problem. Now I'm two days on battery, think I till turn off the gesture to see if I can stretch it to 4 days. I agree it would be better to have a tap on screen.
