Gear Live: Usage Time of Gear Live

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Gear Live

Q: Usage time of my Gear Live seems to be shorter than Galaxy Gear series. What's the problem?

A: Gear Live device is Google GED device and all of features and concept within Gear Live had been decided by Google.

Differently with existing Galaxy Gear series, LCD of Gear Live is always ON like watch and it's the device concept by Google.

NOTE: LCD will not always persist the ON anymore.

As a result, Gear Live uses more battery power than Galaxy Gear and total usage is much shorter.

If you don't want this, please turn off the "Screen always on" option at Settings of Android Wear app on your device.
