    And how does this pair with my smartphone? bluetooth. Even with the new low power bluetooth in the latest update for the Nexus 4 my battery is still gone in a day or so if I don't have it charging while at my desk. Doesn't matter if the watch can last 5 days as it won't have anything to connect to within 1.
