The reports of horrendous battery life were TOTAL B.S.
I honestly do not have a clue on how one could run this battery down during the course of the day.(12-18 hrs)
Closest I've come is about 65% (remaining,not used),
& I've been using ATN MANAGER,which updates 2 Gmails/texts/email(Exchange account,which reads out the entire email,very cool).
Not to mention the CHAT-ON feeds,which I have numerous(ENGADGET/MASHABLE/etc.....)
This watch gets better everyday,you won't be disappointed & even when smartwatch tech progresses,I promise you'll look back on the "early days" w/the Gear w/a smile........
