So I knew the battery life on the AW4 wouldn’t be any better than the Series 3, but I didn’t think it would actually be WORSE! I’m comparing battery life to my AW3 in terms of what I get out of a normal usage day, and the AW4 is losing about 10-15% battery over my AW3. I also notice it starts draining soon after a full charge; I charge it about 2 hours before I go to bed, and on the A3, battery would still hold at 100% when I went to bed. I never saw it drop to even 99%. The A4, however, goes down to 92-93% before I even get to bed!! WTH? I don’t have any new apps installed and I’m still following my normal usage schedule. I’ve done the reboots which, on the AW3, always made a difference in performance, but they have no effect on the AW4. I just shut off the workout reminders and gym equipment detection, so I’m hoping that’ll help? Has anyone tried that and seen a difference? Is this battery drain normal? Is this just how it is with the AW4?
