    As i'm guessing to find your device it has to use a certain amount of battery life, right?

    honestly, i just leave the bluetooth on all of the time now...if you walk away from the phone far enough the gear disconnects from the phone and then reconnects when you get closer. it's not something you have to manage or even think about and like i say, i don't see any real drain on my battery.

    The battery on the Note 3 is the CHIT!! I don't think it will ever run out!! .. But, if it does, I got a spare to snap in and I will be back to 100% in less than 30 seconds..

    Not to mention that the devices now use low energy blue tooth, so no more of the drain we used to see.

    I couldn't tell you the difference in battery life. I only used the Note 3 for three days before I got the Gear, and the Gear has been paired ever since. I'm one that has always left Bluetooth on on my main phones for the last three years, so I don't even know what battery life is like if Bluetooth is off.

    I've had my Gear for a few days and it doesn't affect battery life on my Note 3 at all. This low power Bluetooth 4.0 seems to deliver what it promises.
