Battery drain issue after 5.0.1 Lollipop update on LG G Watch running Android Wear.

I applied the 5.0.1 Android Wear update yesterday and charged  the G wach overnight...

From 7 AM to 2:30 PM I am now currently on 18% battery.. I haven't used the watch more that normal and Wear Battery Status isn't showing excessive usage..

I'll keep an eye out on this issue.

Next day update;
I've now removed instaweather and dislock

Fully charge and ready to go Wearbattery is now telling me that my watch is should last until tomorrow 4PM. This is much better than yesterday's performance.

6/01/2015 - update -
I've been using the LG G watch since the update and battery usage has gone back to normal. I also have a second LG G Smart watch which didn't suffer from the same issue post upgrade.
