    since updating to 2.01 my watch is losing like 10% an hour and I haven't even touched it. I used to get great battery life, but once I updated last week, I'm out of battery by 3pm with minimal use.
    Anyone who is more Apple educated than me, what should I try, any ideas? Could an app be doing this? Should I restore the watch, how do I even do that? Any help would be appreciated. I am running the NYC Marathon on Sunday and was hoping to use the watch, but with this new battery life I'll be out before I even start.

    it sounds simple but when i had an issue with battery life switching it off and on again believe it or not worked. Give it a try

    I few things, is your iPhone on the latest iOS? (not that it should affect it).

    Maybe be best to un-install the apps for a day or two and see how it runs, if it is still draining as quick as you say it is. I think it would then be best to drop into an Apple Store.

    In order, I'd (stopping who one of these works, obviously):
    • Try turning off then on again.
    • Do a hard reset (hold both buttons until you see the Apple logo).
    • Unpair/repair with phone, restore from backup.
    • Unpair/repair with phone, set up as new watch.
    One of those (probably the second IME) should sort it.

    There have been quite a few people including me with weird battery issues. Is this happening every day or just sporadically?

    Thanks for this. The hard reset seems to have worked. I didn't know there was a difference between just turning the watch or phone off, and hard resetting it, but I guess so.
