    I kind of doubt Google will do that, but certainly hope so.

    It might be a Huawei thing....Get the warning at 40%, and then at 15% battery saver is automatically enabled (and you have to manually override it, every time).

    I just tried your power off trick. I have no idea why that would work, but worth a shot.

    sometimes you have to do a restart for settings to take effect. not sure if it will work in this case but it was something to try.

    Honestly Since I made the Switch to the Gear S3 and did the FDR ive been getting 2 days with LTE and WiFi Auto on and could not be happier. I do miss some of the Android Wear OS Apps and Features as the Tizen is still Limited. Once the Battery Life can get to where the S3 is i may get another Wear OS Watch.

    I currently have gear s2 classic and it gets great battery life - over two days. my next watch will be lte but I will be sticking with samsung because I like the rotating dial. there is only one app I wished it had and that is for google authenticity. there is one but it is from a third party and really do not trust them. want one from google. other than that I really do not have any needs for apps so really don't have a need for a wearos watch

    I haven't really looked all that closely, but after recent updates my Huawei Watch 2 Classic seems to get over 2 days....and that's with location, wifi/bluetooth and always-on face enabled, along with reading my heart rate every 10 minutes. I don't really do anything else on my watch other than check the time, and track a workout while listening to music over bluetooth.

    Now if I go for a run an put a heavy load on the gps and heart rate monitor, then it's a different story. 1 hour of that equates to like 8 hours of normal usage.

    I got the heart monitor turned off. all it does is count my steps. other than that, it is just email and notifications for me.

    I'm also interested to see support for a sleep tracker. I believe Cardiogram for IOS does this, but doesn't appear to have that yet for Android.

    I think the smartwatch will eventually [many years from now] be a huge component of health/medical tracking via implants. Just imagine what that can do for early warning of heart attacks, stroke and cancer.

    I accidently had the sleep tracker on a couple of weeks ago. according to it, I was sleeping while outside, relaxing on the patio. IMO, it is worthless.

    I would guess it depends on the software. The combination of heart rate and motion should be almost 100% accurate in detecting sleep.
