Rough battery life for continuous active accelerometer
We are evaluating the metawear R with only measuring acceleration and battery level once every minute. The battery is then drained within a few days. Is this normal?
Does someone have rough figures on battery life and how to optimize it when continuously measuring acceleration only.
We are doing the following on the board.
1. Acceleration 10Hz measure with split in:
1a. stream mode but having triggers so only Bluetooth sending should be needed ~2 times a day.
1b. In log mode for the raw acceleration data and emptying the logs once every minute.
2. Measuring battery level once every minute.
What is optimal to extend battery life in these cases? Disconnect the board during wait times or does it go into some sleep mode by itself when not sending data?
With metawear C will the battery life be increased/decreased and roughly by how much?
