    My mate got his Apple Watch Friday. While it's been fine with the battery life, about evening time yesterday, it started to drop battery charge quickly (from 40% to 10% in an hour with little activity)

    Today is the same. Not much activity, no glances bar the stock ones, and using intermittently. Took off charge at 7am and now at 40%.

    The interesting thing is, the usage says the standby time is the exact same as the used time.

    In contrast, I've been using mines a lot today to control music, reply to texts. Read emails etc since 7am and mines is 78%.

    Is this a defect? Anything I should try?

    That's helpful! :-/

    All I was asking is if anyone else had experienced similar, and if they knew what could be causing it. It could be something as simple as a setting.

    Have you tried restarting or resetting? Could be an App 'stuck' open.

    Did he try rebooting the watch? There might be a process stuck.

    If that doesn't work, I'd try a restore. This is what apple will suggest first anyway...
