Tried everything and finally this morning turned off SOS and things are good.
I'm going to try this - thanks!
If you report problems, at least mention in the OP that it's the beta. Otherwise, an unsuspecting member might say "I can't find SOS on my AW running wOS 2.2" or dig up this thread from the graveyard once wOS 3 officially debuts disputing that SOS causes battery drain.
Fantastic tip!!!!! Thank you so much.
thanks huge difference!
Have been testing the battery since yesterday after turning off SOS. And I can say there is a huge difference. Thanks for the tip.
Turned it off but no difference. Battery is still very poor. Any other ideas?
Did you restart your watch?
Thank you. I think this and setting up watch as new made my watch's battery life back to normal.
Not since then. Every time I restart my watch now on watch is beta 2, my watch faces all reset and disappear..
I had turned off SOS but didn't restart so I restarted last night - will be keeping an eye out - I'm still dropping around 5-10% each hour. I have a 38 MM so I never got the battery life of folks with the 42 MM but I could usually make it through a day. I'm watching to see if the restart helps today. Before I would average 3% per hour on Watch OS2 and OS1.
I never turned off SOS, my watch just finally after a few days regulated and I get basically the same battery life as I was getting on OS 2. Put it on at 8:30 am today and I am currently at 20% at 12:30 am. I have SOS on, screen at maximum brightness, and prominent haptic notification is on. I am finally happy!
Same, SOS on, battery life is great, as good as Watch OS2.
(not saying this might work for others, who knows what bugs affect some and not others)
Same for me and thanks also for the tip.
ABBA says don't do this.
Sorry, couldn't resist.
