Yeah, i know. If i switch te watch off completely i have the longest battery life, but to what purpose? I don't know how battery life is supposed to be, i just got the device, but from what i learn from this forum it's gone worse after the latest update which got pushed to my watch the moment i turned it on? Can you confirm that? What's the purpose of all those nice features when, if you use them, your battery doesn't last through the day?

Santa Clause brought me a Gear S2 and I'm struggling to find a configuration that makes my battery last for at least a day. I have a dark watchface, switched off Wifi (does it make a difference if Wifi is set to Off instead of Auto when the watch is connected to the phone over Bluetooth the whole day?), removed all applications except S-Health.
I don't want to switch off Bluetooth, that sort of kills the whole purpose of the watch. Does it make a difference if a watchface only shows time or shows stings like steps as well?
What does it really mean when the watchface consumes the most battery? That my watchface is too complex? I use the default Modern Utility with Steps and Battery dials.
What else can I do to make the battery last longer?
Ah, and in the unlikely event that Samsung is reading this, my device is a SM-R732, Tizen 126.96.36.199, Software version R732XXU2EPK5.
