    Hello, once upon a time I was getting 35-40 hours of light use out of the Turbo, but now I've got a lot more going on so I'm not complaining; but more recently I've been trying to pinpoint what is causing 3-4x usage.
    I've tried uninstalling new apps with no luck. I've cleared app cache as well as the partition and witnessed no positive effect.

    Normally I put the phone on the charger overnight but last night I charged it before I went to sleep and then unplugged. I saw almost 30 percent drop in six hours with no screen time.

    Does "keep awake" on the Bluetooth screen shot refer to the phone or just Bluetooth?

    I have an app called Garmin connect that communicates via Bluetooth with a band that continually climbs in memory usage (it is now using 392 mb) until I restart the phone every two to three days. What do you think about this?

    Thanks in advance

    Your phone awake 100%. It sounds like Garmin Connect is causing Bluetooth to keep your phone awake causing a massive battery drain.

    Have you tried removing Garmin Connect for a few charge cycles?

    Also, if you could screenshot the main battery usage page with all the percentages, that would help me confirm if it is actually Garmin Connect, or something else, or a combination of apps.

    Woodstock, the main battery page never really has any suspicious apps. There is usually only a handful of 1%'ers.

    I will try your suggestion about Garmin connect. I've been using it for over a year without issue, but I will try to rule it out.

    Thank you again

    That is odd, then. Definitely try uninstalling Garmin Connect for a charge cycle or two. And clearing the cache partition couldn't hurt, either.

    A factory reset solved the problem. The phone is like new again. I think the issue was more than just Garmin's app.
