    For those with a smartwatch, have you noticed your smartwatch battery go down faster with the Galaxy S6?
    - With my Asus Zenwatch connected to my Xperia Z3, the watch was able to last almost 2 days, but now with my Zenwatch connected to my S6, the watch just lasts a little over 1 day
    - Also, I wonder if phone being connected to a smartwatch noticeably affects the battery of the S6. I would assume it will since bluetooth has to be on the whole time

    Those with smart watches...have you noticed anything?

    No....I suggest resetting the watch. To sync with new phone.

    I have the ZenWatch and it lasts about the same on my S6 and S5, which is just a little more than a day, the same as yours. I wonder why it lasts so much longer with the Z3. I was worried that pairing with a smartwatch would dramatically reduce my phone battery life, but I didn't notice a huge difference on my S5, and my S6 battery life has been great so far even with the watch paired.

    Yeah my Zenwatch was lasting almost 2 days when connected with my Z3...I thought that was normal
    Its noticeably less lasting when connected to the S6
    And yeah I guess I really don't notice any battery life change on the S6 itself...I was just wondering

    Howdy. Have you been able to get your steps from your watch to your phone? If so, how? My S6 won't allow Fit to be loaded onto the phone.

    Yr thoughts much appreciated.

    Peace,

    I have the Asus Zenwatch paired with my S6 edge and it lasts just the same than with the OnePlus One, Moto X and Note 4 that I had before the S6. When I had the Z3 I had the Moto 360 so can't compare there.

    I don't use Google Fit anymore from the watch. Just started using S Health. I like it much better.

    Unfortunately i am in the same boat. S6 is using S Fitness while my Moto 360 is using Moto Connect and Google Fit (eventhough we cant install it). Weirdly im also still seeing Google Now cards eventhough i am not using Google Launcher. I really hope Google Fit works soon, this is frustrating.

    Right but how do you get S Health to work with your Moto 360? I dont see the S Health apps on my watch.

    Yup I used S-Health for my fitness needs instead of the watch...much better and more accurate I think

    If you are seeing google now cards on your Moto360, you have to disable them from the watch
    When you open the notification on the watch, keep swiping left until you see "block app"

    But then you have to have your phone on you all the time, right?
