    I have an original Series 1 which I got a couple of weeks after launch.

    Battery life in the last couple of months has been terrible. I have had OS4 Beta since it was available.

    I was hoping the GM would eventually fix the poor battery life, but it hasn’t.

    Turned of various Apps from background refresh. Reduced screen brightness, all that stuff.

    Full charge, from about 7AM will take me to about 6 or 7PM. Few notification and interactions, but not loads.

    Anyone with an old Series 1 on OS4 get good battery life ?

    I have a series 0 and I’m having similar issues. The battery issue is causing me to consider upgrading.

    Might have to be £80 for a new battery. Not happy about it, but I guess it’s coming up for 2.5 years old. Apple claim 80% battery after 1000 charges. Don’t think I’m getting that.

    Series 0 - Launch unit - Took off the charger at 7am and currently at 44%. Was also used at the gym for an hour in exercise mode and using the new face on wOs4 with HR on the face.

    Surprisingly it is still going strong. Other than the burn in. :(
