    To get 2 days on one charge, Ive been taking advantage of the power reserve mode.

    I'll usually put my phone on power reserve from 10am-12pm and 1pm-3pm. During these times, I'm usually in meetings and don't need my phone or notifications. I keep my phone on sleep mode inside my briefcase.

    If an emergency pops up, my phone will go off after three consecutive calls. Other than that, I don't need my watch during meetings unless to check time.

    By 11pm on day one, my watch is around 65%. I'll put the watch on power reserve mode and wake up with my watch around 58% which is enough to get me through a second day.

    You just told us you regularly put it on power reserve mode and then you boast that your getting 2 days out of it? lol I'm sure there would be a problem if this wasn't the case buddy!

    I'm just using mine normally and hitting the second day now, will see how far it goes, it's all about usage to be honest, if your get lots of notifications and work out, you can struggle with one day. For some users the battery will be beyond 18 hours easily, some will struggle to get through a day.

    So far 24hrs and 43% battery left.

    My next test will be to use it as much as possible, to see how it goes under heavy usage.

    Yesterday was my first day using it during a work day.
    Went to bed with it at 66%

    Ended the day around the same at 68%. Been able to make it 2 days per charge so far. Been noticing a slight hit on my iPhone battery but nothing major.

    Really impressed with the battery life

    I have to say I've also found battery life to be's once you put it into workout mode it begins to take a real hit.

    You can also power off your watch when you don't need it. You don't lose any charge that way. I get through 2 days without problem with medium usage.
