Do you all toggle bluetooth off for Apple Watch each night or keep it on 24/7?

    Since getting an Apple Watch I toggle bluetooth off at night before bed, then when I wake up i toggle it on.

    DO you all keep bluetooth on 24/7 on your phone? Seems like a pain to toggle it.

    Nope, for me, everything is on, 24/7/365. To me, there is no point in turning it on and off.
    Even when I had Android devices, the only thing I turned off was NFC. Why? I never used it...

    When sleeping you should not have bluetooth enabled very close to your Head.

    Sure you can as long as you are protected from the 'evil' BT rays.

    I put mine into airplane mode at night to conserve battery while still using Sleep++.

    Leave everything enabled all the time. BT barely uses any power. You probably burn more energy toggling through the screens to enable/disable versus just leaving it on.

    I leave BT enabled because I'd want the watch to help wake me if a call comes in while I'm sleeping. Silent taptics FTW.

    It's a fair point - on the few occasions I've worn my watch while sleeping, I've put it in Airplane mode and turned off 'raise to wake'
    Why?
    A) I want the battery to last until then morning and B) I'm a light sleeper and the glare of an OLED display in my face at night could wake me up.
    Obviously if you're leaving it on a nightstand then it can all be left on, and there's never any need to turn off Bluetooth on your phone.

    I leave it on, but I also have a charging stand on my night stand and before bed I put my watch on it and plug my phone in. I do this nightly regardless of what the battery is at at the time. Every morning I wake to devices that I use daily all rested and recharged ready to go.

    I used to do sleep tracking with jawbone up, tried with AW but didn't find any of the apps to do a great job with it. At this point w/o using another brand fitness/sleep tracker I would say sleep cycle (on iPhone) does the best job. I would recommend giving it a try for a few nights and just charge your watch while your sleeping.

    I turn it off in case my phone and my ipad develop self awareness while I am sleeping and use BT to communicate with one another and plot against me. @Julien I just bought one of those hats off ebay. Got a special version for $1K that includes BT & WiFi protection. #SkyNetIsReal people.

    The battery loses about 5-8% for me when I wear the AW while sleeping. Nothing to worry about.
