    Just got the watch on Friday and so far having lots of fun with it. My question is about the impact on the iphone (specifically I have a 6) battery life. Since the watch is constantly connected to the phone via bluetooth, does this greatly reduce the battery life from a full charge?

    I have a 6+, and see no significant battery drop while connected to the watch.

    Since using my iphone (6) less it's been at around 70% to 80% every night when plugging it in at bedtime. I maybe pick it up 1/4 as much as I did before getting the watch, which holds a pretty good charge as well, usually about 50% for the entire day.
