    So am I the first to have the battery only charge to 99%? Anyone think of any reason it will not charge to 100% after just a few days use? Thanks

    That happen to me on my second charge, however on my third (today) it went to 100% but I did complexly discharge the battery until it turned off!

    I don't think this is an issue and will resolve within a couple of discharges/charges

    Same thing keeps happening to me. I take it off for a moment, and put it back on, then it goes to 100%.

    Having the same issue. Haven't had time to calibrate the battery just yet. It bothers me, but hopefully it won't be an ongoing issue.

    Now mine won't go over 97%. Jeez, I've never had this problem with an iPhone.

    have you restarted the apple watch and or re-paired the device to your iphone? those are two things that usually resolve this issue.

    Mine would charge all night and go only to 99%. I would take it out of the charger and wait a few minutes. Put it back on the charger and it would go to 100%

    does your battery drain quickly during use?

    Depends. I use the Exercise app each day for about 90 minutes for workouts. I found if I turned off the heart beat part of it I used much less battery. I also use bluetooth earbuds and play music from my watch while I exercise. I am ending the day about 40% left. I find myself looking at battery life during the day a lot. Still trying to get a handle on it.

    cant say i have the issue where it wont charge to 100%

    the only thing i have is where the battery is around 10% before the end of day but i think it has to do with using the fitness app 4 times a day. just repaired my device and shut down/reboot to see if that helps any.
