    Was just wondering if anyone keeps their bluetooth on through out the day and how do you find your battery 🔋 life?

    Sure do. And BT usage when not actually in use is negligible.

    I keep mine on all the time because it's connected to my Samsung Gear S2. I think it drains my phone a little faster. I compared it to another guy who has the ATT version and we both had about 3 1/2 hours SOT. I was at 39%, he was at 50%. Obviously different usage but I was a little shocked. Lol

    On all day, linked to Ford's My Sync. Drain is minor.

    Been on all day. Connects to both my cars. I like the Bluetooth Unlock feature where the PRIV remains unlocked while connected to my car but goes back to normal password setting the when disconnected from the car. I don't think it drains the battery much at all since it's not "searching" at all times. That said I have a 2-3 hour commute in the car both ways each day so it's connected quite a bit.

    Yup, I have it connected to my Moto 360 all day and evening. Sometimes double-connected to my LG Tone's (headset) as well. Also, when connected to my watch, it keeps the phone unlocked (until they're separated again).
    I find my battery life to be just peachy.

    Turned mine on about 2 weeks ago, connected to a Voyager Legend, haven't turned it off yet, battery drain is negligible, almost nonexistent.
    I'm going to guess that if you are out of range of what ever you are paired to, for several hours a day it might be a slightly larger drain, but bluetooth just doesn't use much energy.

    Think about the little ear pieces, can't be much of a battery in them, yet they will deliver 7 to 12 hours of talk time - not standby but actual talk time.

    I'd just have my fitbit connected to it

    Leave my Bluetooth on all the time. Doesn't appear to have a negative effect. If so its minimal.
