Do you guys keep your cell modem on all day, or just turn it on if you're out without your phone?
On all day. That's why I paid for it--
I leave it on all day. I believe the cellular radio only turns on when you seperate from your phone.
Oh, great - thanks guys. I was wondering if the battery was capable of handling cell-always-on, but sounds like the OS is smart about only turning on the radio when necessary.
On all day.
Here are the three states. Connected to iPhone, lost connection with iPhone/wifi, turns on cellular. There is a fourth state of wifi but I didn’t post a picture of that.
I leave everything on and always have more than 50% left by days end.
I usually leave it on all the time, as others have said the OS manages it very well.
However if I purposely go out for the evening without my phone and notice that my watch has low battery, I will selectively turn it on when I want to check messages or text someone. It’s a nice trick to extend the battery life if you don’t mind being unreachable.
This would be accurate.
And only if there's not a known wifi around.
