    When Microsoft announced the update with the GPS power saving feature, they had someone doing the Seattle to Portland Bicycle Classic with a Band 2 and they claimed the battery lasted for a whole day.

    I tried turning the GPS power saving mode on today and went for a bicycle ride. After about 4 hours my Band died due to low battery. I had the display in "standby" the whole ride. It didn't sync with my phone. I was expecting at least 6-8 hours.

    I get about 4 hours with GPS power saving off, so it didn't seem to improve battery life.

    What's your experience with the GPS power saving mode? Anyone tried to turn it on and how much did it improve battery life?
