Hi Guys,

this is now the second time since I bought the S4 that I am experiencing the following issue.

Battery on the watch will drain quickly (1% per 5-10 minutes or more without using the watch) and usage time and stand by time displayed in the watch iPhone app will be the same.

Even restarting the watch (and iPhone) doesn’t resolve the issue, with standby and usage time increasing at the exact same pace even after the restart.

I have no idea what is going on, I have even deleted ALL 3rd party apps and complications from the watch the first time it occurred but I am now experiencing the issue again regardless.

Does anyone have an idea what might be causing this? I have absolutely no clue.

Is there any way to see battery usage by app on the watch like you can on the iPhone?

...do you guys charge your S4 watches every night (sorry to hijack :oops: )?

I have a charging dock on my nightstand and used to charge my S0 every night - would it be ok to do the same with my new S4 watch?!

You can leave your Watch or iPhone or any Apple device for that matter on the charger as long as you want. They stop charging once it's full.
