    My new AWS3 reached 5% (OS 4.3) and the overall duration of the battery is:

    TOTAL 52 hours
    IN USE 24 hours

    Where do you see this usage?

    Apple Watch Series 3 GPS Only, bought November 2017, used almost every day since.

    I am currently on the second day, 5 activities, I am closing I thing towards 40 hours of total standby and my battery is at 38%.

    I am very happy with the battery life after update to WatchOS 4.3

    HAHAHA i did the numbers by myself but if there is any APP that measures it would be perfect, I come from an AWS0, so everything is happiness with this one.

    Ole! Ud también por acá! haha

    The battery on 4.3 is pretty decent, is not like 4.0, it lasted 3 days.

    I changed the most recent apps for the dock and disable "Hey Siri" and the battery is pretty decent. Now it last 2.5 days with these changes.

    I have Hey Siri off and raise to wake is on. I think I could easily get 2 days if I tried but I always charge it while showering and that always takes it to 100% - if I exercise for 1+ hours I might see 85%.

    I realized the battery drains in the night, it consumes 10% with Theater mode on and Autosleep tracking (NO, is not Autosleep, on 4.0 it drains 1 or at least 3%)

    I usually charge it when I get back home. A few hours later, I put it back on to use as a sleep tracker. I then will wear it all day. So figure about 20-22 hours of use. With sleep tracking, I have the app running but turn the watch to theater mode. Otherwise I have Raise to Wake on and Hey Siri on. After all that, it's at about 80 percent.

    It's the GPS-only model, so if someone has cellular on it won't last as long. But this is still insane. I don't know why Apple only advertises 18 hours of battery life.

    Do you turn it off at night? I simply leave it in airplane mode
