    I just updated the Gear app and the "Usage since last fully charged" only lists one entry, Contacts, and says it has used 92%?

    Anyone else seen anything like this?

    How do you get to that screen? I got an update last night and when I go into Gear Manager, I can tap the battery usage section and it brings me to "About Gear" but I don't see anything about battery usage stats.

    A little late on this, but I'm also seeing a similar battery usage stat for the Contacts app. Have you found a reason why?

    When I tap on battery usage it works normally. I'm seeing a larger than usual contacts battery usage also since this last gear app update, 34%, Next is my watch face at 17%. I'm not seeing high drain though. Still over 70% full day use, 14 hours.

    On a good note about this update I have gotten every notification since the update. Mine was missing notifications randomly for a week prior.

    Seeing the same thing. High contacts app at 36%, but still have 49% battery remaining 15 hours later.

    Yeah, battery life took a dump on mine too. I'm not running apps, the screen isn't always on, I've soft reset, I've hard reset, I've cleaned up my contacts list.... I can put my watch on before I go to work, and it needs a recharge before I go home. Contacts is using up 98% of my battery life. Seems like updates are breaking things.
