    Hi Huys

    Just received my Apple Watch and the wow factor is huge :)

    That being said, I think I might have a "monday" model. I have charged the Watch all night (8 hours) and got around 82% of power. Then I put it on and wear it for a little less than an hour and now its and 63%. Back in the charger for about an hour and now on 65% = 2% an hour - is that really the way it is supposed to be?

    Regards
    Tommy

    No. Have you installed the new software update? Yours likely has the 1.0 on it. Also, make sure you do a hard reset and see if that fixes it.

    If you are still having those issues, take it into an Apple Store so they can see if it's your watch or the charging puck.

    I updated as the very first thing. Haven't done the hard reset though, gonna try that

    ----------

    OK did a hard reset and the battery dropped from 65% to 60%, guess I'm on my way to the Apple store :mad:

    Try charging if fully first now that you've done the hard reset. Then see how the battery is.

    I had battery issues at first too until I did a hard reset. Then all was well.

    Charging

    There has been statements from some members that battery life is worse with 1.0.1. I'm still on 1.0, and no problems such as OP mentions. In fact, today I charged my AW for about 20 minutes and it went from about 49% to 97% within that time. Maybe it's the "Monday Blues"?

    Please don't take this the wrong way, but have you definitely removed all the plastic from both your watch and the charging puck (it can be hard to see and others have thought they had a problem until they removed the protective packaging)?

    I'm not going to assume that's what's going on with the poster. But it did happen to me. I had ordered a second charger when I first ordered the phone. It wasn't until after my first day's use that I realized there was that thin layer over the charger. I think I had gotten it all off of one but the other remained and it finally dawned on me to make sure.

    I have to be honest, I had the plastic thing on the charger for 3 or 4 days after I received the watch. I discovered by coincidence when I was testing the strength of the magnet :)

    This happened to me as well. It wasn't until a couple of days after I got my watch I realized that plastic was still there.

    Going from 65 to 60% when rebooting your watch is not a big deal. Just try charging overnight and see if it goes to 100%. Not much they can do at the Apple Store.
