Battery life of Samsung Active2 with LTE (esimm) only getting 10 hours - how to extend?

What can i do to extend the battery life of my brand new Active2 with LTE? Getting about 10 hours only. Not even making through the day. i have googled the (Edited per community guidelines) out of it but all the suggestions are taking about the non-LTE models.

I have already dimmed my display, watch face not always on, turned off wifi, turned off nfc, etc.

obviously i want to use my watch as a stand alone device or i would not have spent the extra money on the LTE model. currently i am using bluetooth to connect with my phone and mobile networks auto on/off. tried turning blue tooth off and mobile networks always on but that really seemed to eat up the battery.

also have mobile data set to on. what exactly does mobile data do? is it for email? i do have email set up on my watch. and currently have mobile data set to on.

so what are your experiences with battery life on the Active2 LTE? Do you have any tips to prolong the battery life? is my watch battery maybe just a dud?

That is normal run time. Keep in mind the first smart watches ran 4 hours

keep in mind samsung stinks at power managment. A lte apple watch will get 48 hours max less with more stand alone use.

Hoping to find who has an Active2 LTE so that I can get their battery performance. Does anyone out there have one?
