Has the 8.1.1 update fixed your charging issue(s) on the AW7 cellular version?

Edit: For background info see this thread
Unfortunately many reports did not specify the AW7 version (GPS only vs GPS + Cellular) or which watchOS (8.1 vs 8.1.1)

I believe the issue was fixed with the update I could be wrong but that's what I read ..
I read that the 8.1.1 update fixed the charging issue(s) with the AW7 Cellular version, too.

I was hoping that those who had the charging issue(s) would post whether 8.1.1 had in fact fixed the issue(s) for them.

I didn’t have a chance to find out if I had the issue or not, but it certainly did fix it. Had my S7 for a full 30 minutes before having to send it in for repair. Unpacked, synced, put it on the charger to update to 8.1.1 and went for a meeting. Came back to a bricked watch.

No charging issues at all after that 😂

I only had the charging issue happen twice in a little less than 3 weeks on 8.1. Since updating to 8.1.1 I haven't had the issue, but it's probably still too soon to know for sure.
