First day and I lost 60% in 6 hours and I wasn't even wearing the watch.
I rebooted my phone and watch and I also removed the maps glance. I suspect the maps glance may have a memory leak that runs in the background after you use it the first time, but that's just a wild guess. This is what worked for me. Hope it works for you.

I actually started doing a similar thing. I organized my glances so the ones I iser primarily that don't require an Internet connection are at the front and the ones that do like maps, Twitter and weather, are at the back.

I did this because I found that swiping through glances, if I had something like maps on the middle, there would be UI lag and a quick attempt to connect to phone for data. I would imagine that if there are places for bugs that can cause large data leaks and battery drains with the watch, it's spots just like this.

I'm getting the watch on Monday but when I initially set it up should I manually add the apps I want or let it copy the phone?
