Android Wear app update: feedback not encouraging

And why would they remove the battery stats?
It's the function I use the most in the app…
Maybe Google noticed that people were using it quite a bit (including to share their disappointment) and wants people to focus on other things instead.
I don't have any other theories.

So no update for now, I disabled automatic updates on the package.

Sony​​​ Smartwatch 3 battery bug fixed?

Since the Android wear update upgrading Google Play Services to the 8.2.98 version, my unit didn't experience the battery emptying bug I mentioned so often before.

I am hopeful that this issue, which was making the watch essentially a defective product is now fixed, possibly thanks to the involvement of +Wayne Piekarski​​​​​​​ who gave my many bug reports to the right people.
Last month he mentioned that the bug was fixed internally, although without more details or an ETA.

The bug occurrence was random however so it's hard to tell for sure by definition hence my question:

Is it fixed for you too?

The screenshot shows battery statistics with light usage – sitting on my desk aside from a few hours a day when I go for a walk: the watch battery performance is now pretty solid.

Interesting read to learn more about how things work ☺
