    As per the title really. Has anyone noticed their battery being any worse with the watch connected all the time? On bluetooth in the car with my phone or using bluetooth headphones I notice the battery drains faster, however they both require high bandwidth.

    I have read the watch uses lower bandwidth and hence uses low energy Bluetooth. So in theory it shouldn't impact the battery on your phone as much.

    However how are people finding this in the real world? Any noticeable difference in battery life on your phones?

    I'm curious to know this as well. Yesterday wouldn't be a fair comparison because I was using my phone for video and audio recording along with video streaming so at the the end of the day it was already at 19%.

    I've not seen a noticeable difference on my 5S. Down to 22% after 12 hours
