    I've heard of rapid Apple Watch battery drain with previous betas. How are things with public beta four with 6s Plus? It's running fine on my iPad Pro and want to put it on my iphone but don't want to crush my apple watch.

    My watch has been off charger for 4 hours so far and only down to 95%. When i get home, it's been 12+ hours off charger and always above 60%.

    Iphone 6s here, pubic beta 3. Watch with 2.x OS. Watch battery is so far beyond bad now its kinda funny. I charge every night. It will be dead by 5:15p most days. I put it on around 7am. And that is not using the watch for anything but looking at the time and seeing what just made my phone beep. I am not doing any working tracking on it, not using apps, etc.

    Have you tried unpairing and repairing it? Mine was like that, terrible battery life until I did it when I was still on beta 3. Took the time to also restore the phone as new as battery life was pretty bad on the phone too. It worked. Things have been great since them. Watch has been off the charger for 12 hours and it's at 60%.

    Definitely try un-pairing the watch and then re-pairing it.

    It's quite common for the watch battery to drain after updating iOS or watchOS. The above fixes it pretty much every time.

    Thanks for that suggestion - I had not done that.
    However, this morning I did. unpaired it, paired it, restored from backup. Before I left the house I did this and left with 89% battery. That was at 8am. It is not 10:21 and I am at 43%

    I am going to give watchOS 3 beta a try. Not suggesting that trying to figure out the why is a waste, but I wanted to try OS3 anyway and found how to do it without a dev account.
