For everyone who has the watch, what is the battery like, how much have you used it?

    Just considering how much of a concern it was

    I got it 7 hours ago on 65%, it's on 20% now, been using it quite heavily (obviously).

    Expect everyone to get an hour and a half first day while they constantly play with it. I managed to burn out my 6+ battery the Saturday after delivery

    Today is my first proper day with it (i.e. Using it as my watch). Came off the charge at 7:30, now 9:15 and at 47%

    No workout or overly intensive use but really confident about battery now

    Check out the battery life sticky. Lots of info there.

    Have been using mine nonstop since launch day 24th, it easily lasts 18-24 hours.

    I got mine on launch (42mm SG Sport). No issues with the battery whatsoever. I am using it a lot including daily workouts and plenty of notifications. It goes on about 8am, off about 12-1am and is usually around 30% remaining.

    I could probably squeeze two work days out of the watch. Been very impressed.

    It's murdering my phone battery, though.

    Mine came off the charger at 6:30. Did an hour spin class with it, and have been using it fairly frequently today - checking calendar and activity and answering texts with dictation (and showing it off a bit) Now at 2:00 I'm at 60%. Not bad.

    Took mine off charger at 7am, at 76%.

    My phone battery is the issue, not the watch. I just ordered a new battery for my 5S which hopefully resolves my problems

    The battery life on the Watch and my iPhone6 have had the effect I hoped for so far, offloading some activity from the iPhone to the Watch I can get through a full day with no worries on either.

    I take both off chargers at 5am. 11 hours later both have 70% charge (today has been a light day). The past few days were heavier usage and both had 50-60%, which is more than fine for me to make it til very late at night.

    I got 39 hours out of mine before it went to power reserve with moderate usage (some navigation, music, apps etc.). Worth noting I have default brightness and prominent haptics on, a 38mm model, and have NOT used the workout app.

    The first day I used the butterfly interface and I got 6 hours on a battery. Switched to modular and yesterday was 13 hours 33 minutes standby and 3 hours 17 minutes usage. Battery was about 33%.
