    Anyone consider that with the constant Bluetooth connectivity with the watch, how the iphone battery life will suffer?

    It uses BT 4.0 Low Engergy, you should see minimal difference.

    I've been having my bluetooth turned on for the last week to get used to this when the watch comes :D

    In addition to Bluetooth LE being very low energy, it will also in theory mean you turn your iPhone's screen on less. So, depending on your usage it's likely you may see better battery life.

    I use a Pebble Steel and UP24 both are bluetooth. It doesn't seem to have much impact on my iPhone 6 Plus battery.

    Hell Yeah.. Also I keep depleting my iPhone battery to check the Apple watch order status every few minutes. So I'm expecting to see much better battery life on the iPhone when the watch finally comes :D

    My friend who has the Samsung phone and watch combination confirmed this. Says he has a ton of battery left at the end of the day compared to what he used to have since he got the watch.

    It's fine. I have a Pebble watch connected to my iPhone day and night. No impact on battery life.

    I'm thinking that once I have my Apple Watch, my iPhone will have higher battery levels at the end of the day as I'm sure constantly having my iPhones display on takes the battery down more than a bluetooth connection does.
