    I'm pretty satisfied with mines, it's not as bad as every made it out to be. The battery doesn't drain as much as people complain about. I mostly have 50% by close of business when I get home at 5. So pretty much I don't run out of juice.

    So satisfied that I removed the Battery glance and never use the battery complication. It's such a non issue I don't even pay attention to the battery.

    No issues at all.

    It recharges whilst I sleep, then we're both good for at least another day.

    Yes extremely happy. It has exceeded my expectations.
    I can get about 3 days of normal use from it.

    I'm very happy with mine but I have the 42mm steel version. My wife has the 38 and there is a distinct difference in battery life. She's being careful and if doing something she doesn't want the watch on for such as showering, she places it back on the charger for a while. With mine I never even bother looking at the battery percentage anymore. It just goes back on the charger when I go to sleep for the night.

    Were the other 100 battery life threads not enough?

    Totally happy with my battery life. Though I panicked this morning (9AM) when I saw the battery at 90% (took it off the charger this morning at 6AM with 99%). So, I unpaired my watch and re-paired it and it dropped to 84%.

    I think I'm just being paranoid...

    how long was the gap before the drop? it takes me 50% for about 9 hrs, so that's roughly 5.5% per hour, or .09% per minute haha.

    If by gap you mean the time spent unpairing and pairing, then about 11-16 minutes...give or take a few minutes.

    EDIT: It has dropped 6% in the past hour and a half. Someone please tell me I'm just being paranoid...

    Given the lower expectations by initial reviews, I'm pleasantly surprised and content. Battery lasts me 2 days on average and at that point I'm hovering around 26%! But charging it every night is a non factor to me. Already charging my iPhone anyways.

    No I meant battery life. So 6% for 1.5hrs is about normal... that's 36% for a normal 9hr workday. ding ding, we have a paranoid. LOL

    Mine's generally down below 30% by the end of the day; I'm happy with it but I guess maybe I'm using the workout app a bit too much.

    And yesterday it dropped horribly low (not sure why) and I did a brief recharge during the day. If that becomes a regular feature I'll take it in for a check up.

    I came from a pebble and I don't have a single isuue with the battery. I NEVER sleep with my watches on so I just charge it when I sleep. Since I've owned it I've never needed power reserve mode and I usually have around 60% battery when I do plug it in.

    My pebble on the other had left me with a dead watch more then once because the battery is so long (and the charger wasn't as easy to connect) I often wouldn't charge it for days and it would randomly die in the middle of the day.

    I'm very satisfied with my battery life. I wear it on around 7:30 am when I wake up and get ready for work. At the end of day, it's usually around 55% to 70% depending on what I do.

    The battery life of the Watch has always lasted a full day for me. If I use the "Simple" watch face, there will be 40-50% left after a full day of use. However, the Mickey watch face consumes a lot more battery, and only 20-30% was left on the days that I used it. This has to be due to the property of the OLED screen which consumes much less power for completely black pixels.

    I find the battery to be amazing actually. I never even check. By the time I take it off, its barely at 30-40%.

    Usually have ~45% left after wearing the watch from 7am to 10pm.

    Currently at 71% with 13 hours and 18 minutes usage. I think I'm happy.
