    I'm consistently getting about 10%/hr, which isn't bad for my use case, but it seems like most people are getting 12-16 hours on average, even with ambient mode on. Can anyone suggest any changes to my setup? I didn't get many notifications today either (20-30ish). Here's the battery graph (from 9-8, at 8pm it's on 11% before I chucked on a Qi pad):

    Watchface: Pujie Black
    Ambient On, WiFi off, tilt to wake off, wrist gestures on.
    Fitness Tracking: Jawbone Up app, Fit disabled
    Apps: Coffee, Skype, OneNote, Tuner, Wunderlist, Hangouts, Up, Amazon, Hand Dialer, Wear Aware

    Cheers!

    P.S. didn't use Coffee today but it shows usage. Bug perhaps?

    Anyone? Any ideas why I'm only getting 10hrs of use?

    Ambient is going to drain battery. I keep it off.

    I've been off the charger for 14 hours today and have 61% remaining.

    Yeah but I've seen people with ambient on still getting at least 12 hours with battery to spare - I just don't understand what I'm doing wrong

    I take mine off the charger a 7am and back on at 10pm, very consistently 15hrs a day and also always have a minimum of 30% left at the end of the day. Typically it is 40-50%. I don't use ambient mode. I'm also a week into life with a 42mm Gen 3 Moto 360 and have been getting just slightly better battery life with the stock ambient display and auto brightness. most days i'm over 50% when i go on the charger at night.

    I don't seem to have the ability to see Watch History. Ive looked all over.
    I left the house this morning at 8:30am. Walked all day. It's now 4:30pm. My watch is at 86%. (But after fooling around on it for 30 minutes it's down to 79% at 5pm.)
    Location services OFF
    WiFi (watch) AUTOMATIC
    Always On OFF
    Wrist Gestures OFF

    My apps list is only the defaults, MotoBody and Hangouts.

    I'm suspicious of your app list. Coffee more than any others.

    Battery usage statistics have been removed from the Android wear app in the latest update. (Which I think is absurd)

    Some think that battery stats may be directly integrated into the watch with AW 1.4. We'll see!

    Just reinstalled and cleared the cache for Coffee and it's battery usage is much lower now. I might rifle through my apps list and uninstall anything I don't use often - what apps are you suspicious of?

    BTW here's my usage for today, with maybe 50 notifications and a period of time between 1-4 where I was unpaired from my phone on airplane mode (interestingly the battery rate doesn't slow down or anything). I started from 10:30 till 9pm today when I chucked it on my Qi pad - it was at 25%. So it's definitely getting better, roughly 7%/hr.

    That would make sense. Hopefully this is the case.

    This would mean JoJoe42 is using a different Android Wear build than I'm reporting statistics about!

    my battery life is so erratic without any change to the status quo. Some days it will be 15 hours, some days close to 30. The least amount I've encountered was 10 hours, rarely.
    I usually charge it every night. And have had it for almost 12 months.

    I'm still on AW 1.3 as I've heard bad things about the 1.4 update to the app, also it removed the battery stats in the app so I can't see what's going on!!!

    Interesting. Mine seems to be straightening out now - battery life predictions are surprisingly accurate now. I'm getting about 14 hours with ambient on and tilt to wake off. Still nowhere near what other people are claiming to get but given I have Qi pads everywhere it's bearable
