    Second full day using this watch and I love it.

    Have the 3G version from Verizon. I'm a Tmobile user so I can't use the 3G part of it. My wife won the watch at a work conference and she couldn't pick our wireless carrier... they just gave her the Verizon version.

    Anyway, first full day of using it, my battery was at 10% when I went to bed at night.. started from a full charge.

    Figured out the mobile data was turned on, wifi was turned on, and NFC was turned on. So I turned all three off. Planning on turning NFC back on when Samsung Pay finally gets ported to the watch though.

    Today my battery life is much better. 75% right now after 18 hours of being on.

    I was wondering if there's anything I can do to get this even better?

    Small note.. I have "Always On" disabled, Power saving mode turned off. And "Wake Up Gesture" enabled. I would like to keep all three options as they are now.

    Bluetooth must also remain on since that's my only connection to the outside world with my phone.

    NFC appears to always set itself to on, how can I turn it off?

    Something in the last patch messed it up. Now it stays on.
