I have a GW4 Classic and watch is always connected via Bluetooth. Only for updates (apps/system) or when I am always from the phone, I turn on the Wi-Fi. 

My feeling is that when the watch is not connected via Bluetooth, it constantly checks for the phone (even when connected via Wi-Fi). 

If you keep the Wi-Fi toggled on, your watch will automatically connect to Wi-Fi as and when needed.

I've always use Bluetooth to connect my Frontier and Watch⁴ Classic to my phone's and not noticed any excessive battery loss @Ginsing64 


Daily Driver > Samsung Galaxy s²⁴ Ultra 512Gb ~ Titanium Black.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.
I'm here to help. " This is the way. "

Just leave the watch to do its thing regarding connectivity. Mine switches between Bluetooth when near the phone, to WiFi if downloading larger files, to 4G if I leave the phone at home.
