    So not sure what's Goin on but since getting the gear my battery is being murdered. Is this normal? Some sort of trick to reduce the strain on my phone?

    Battery on the gear itself is great. Used allot today for 12 hours and only at 80%.

    No issues here with the Gear and my battery. I have had my Note 3 off charger since 6:00 am this morning. My Gear came in today and I have had it connected to my Note 3 since around 1:00 pm. Right now, after 15 hours off charger and with my Gear connected for 8 hours my battery is at 72%. I would look for something else eating up your battery.

    Maybe try something like CPUSpy and see if you can track down what is eating up your battery. If you are in a really bad 4G area could be your Note 3 is constantly searching for a 4G signal...just a guess. I do not get a very good signal at my house, but have no battery drain issues at all. This phone is incredible on my battery...I really can't believe it after coming from the horrible Nexus.

    No. Gear IS NOT killing your battery.

    One thing I disabled is the S-Pen detection thing. Phone constantly uses a little power to check whether the Pen is in or not. In settings>controls>S-Pen.
    May help a little.

    I'm having the same problem since I got the gear. I do have a bad signal at work and i know the phone is constantly searching for signal but I am running dead in about 5 hours since I got the gear. I was getting through my whole 13 hour shift with about 30% battery left. Maybe it's something else I just have ot figure out!!

    TulsaTime have you looked in our Galaxy Gear forum? Might be something about this there and I know everyone who visits there would love to know the solution you find.
