I can only see a single number, but they definitely each have individual battery right? How do I see both. I want to see the case charge too.

I can't see any of these in the Galaxy wearable app, only one number for both. Is that the minimum battery of both, or just the right ear? Is the right ear actually the most important one 🤔, what's with this.

Thanks everyone, saw that all things everyone suggested were true in certain situations within the Samsung Wearables app.

Summary of what I learned:
Currently the buds 2 software shows the earbud and case battery levels when you first connect with bluetooth.
When you have both out of the case it shows the minimum battery level of both next to the "R" earbud, and no case battery level is shown.
When you have at least one headphone in with the case lid open the wearable app it will show you case battery. If you close the case with only one headphone in it will still show that data.
If they are both the same battery level with at least one earbud charging in the case the earbuds will show up as one number, after the "R" for right earbud. If they are different levels it will show both.

The Samsung SmartThings app shows the percentages for both headphones at all times, it only shows the case battery when one earbud is charging in it.

Thanks everyone for the pointers and help.

You should be able to see the battery percentage in the galaxy wearable app,

Oh thanks for the response. The picture in the link really helps troubleshoot. I know where that is.

I looked at that spot in my galaxy wearables and it only shows the earbuds battery as a single number with no case life.Screenshot_20220325-192152_Galaxy Buds2 Manager_350_1648261417.jpg

But I believe that the first generation of galaxy buds may not show the battery percentage https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MmRbI5y28e4

Strange I double checked and the box definitely says Buds2. My device name also put Buds2 by default. I disconnected and reconnected and it did show case life but only that instant.Screenshot_20220325-185949_SmartThings_348_1648261234.jpg

Ah thanks! Do you know if the number shown for Buds2 is just randomly one of them, or the minimum/maximum of the two?

I believe that it is a combination of both of them since they are charged equally in the case at the same wattage

Ah yep I let one charge alone and I could see two numbers one for each earbud. In addition with what PoliticsMan said above, the case charge appears too during this. Thanks for helping figure this out.

As soon as I take all earbuds away from the case, the case charge goes away and the two buds appear as a single number, seems like the minimum.
