    Update went fine...but now my battery life is horrid. I'm talking a significant drop in battery at night while it's in Airplane mode. (I switch Airplane mode on if it isn't on charger at night.) Last night it dropped nearly 25% overnight...From about 79% to 57%

    It's confusing because there shouldn't be anything happening while in Airplane mode, right?

    I just repaired with my phone, but if that doesn't fix it is there any known way to downgrade to 3.1?

    That's what I was afraid of.

    I have 3.1.1 as well but my battery life is great.

    It's not the update; it's some other kind of unrelated bug. 3.1.1 as it is barely changed anything.

    I think repairing helped. Took off the charger about 9:00Pm last night, only dropped to 97% overnight. Must need to re-pair after update.

    I have a first gen Apple Watch upgraded to 3.1.1 and I definitely have seen a decrease in battery life. Not only have a unpaired then repaired, I also set up the watch as new and deleted data in the health app for good measure.

    I used to end the day in the 60% range, now it's more like 50% or lower. My coworker has a second gen and with the same activity (most times more as he uses dictation often and I don't) his battery life is much better even though he starts his day an hour earlier than I do.

    So, yes, it IS the update.

    (I know the second gen has a better battery)

    I updated my OS last night and have 3.1. Was 3.1.1 a newer version and did they pull it because it had a lot of bugs?

    They pulled it because it crashed some people's watches.

    Glad I'm not the only one that was seeing it.

    I managed to download 3.1.1 to my phone prior to it getting pulled, but before I upgraded my watch. Now I can't upgrade my watch, and the little red 1 (one) won't go away on my phone.

    Generally just hard reset after update and it fixes it. Try that first always.

    What you should do is call Apple and see if they're willing to repair it under warranty (if it's under a year old). They usually just send you a new one. This will work great if you have any small scratches on the screen or case that bug you, you'll basically be getting a new watch. ;)

    Which generation watch do you have?

    Oh absolutely call Apple and tell them the update screwed up your watch. They will probably swap it for you.

    This is why Apple pulled it. If the watch is working then eventually Apple should issue a new update that hopefully remove the red 1 on your phone.

    From the Apple watch app on the phone :
    settings>general>usage. You can delete the update there

    My Series 1 is just fine with the 'borked' 3.1.1.
    I'm at 98% (the second before I took the screenshot the percentage was at 99, lol) with 31 minutes of usage and 3 hours of stand by.

    Ditto this side. No major problems - Series 2.

    I did a re-pair it though, since something was going wonky with the Stand measurements - but I suspect that could be due to interference from a sleep-tracking device. But battery life on 3.1.1 has been fine all through. Obviously a case of YMMV...
