    Hello all

    I wonder if any of you could help me with an issue I'm having with my I watch series 1 .
    I replaced the battery as it was not holding charge very long at all .
    In fact it's acting the same as the battery I replaced ?!

    Is it the battery or something to do with the IOS ?

    Regards

    CPJ

    Describe "not holding a charge at all".

    Who replaced the battery, Apple?

    I replaced the battery , and basically it's acting the same way the old one did .
    It goes from 100% charged to zero in like 8 hours ...

    Could be a hardware issue but I do not know how much you use your watch or what is running on it.

    Minimal usage , basically used as a watch .
    Background app refresh is off.
    But given that it's a new battery shouldn't it work better than that !
    I wondered if it was an apple issue , as in is there some preprogrammed stuff going on which transfers
    The old battery memory to the new one

    The non-OEM battery you used to replace may be no better than your original.

    No the two batteries are not talking to each other.

    It could be a hardware problem but I am betting on bad battery.

    I didn't think the two batteries were talking lol I meant is it perhaps in the IOS .
    , I bought it from a highly recommended German company , it wasn't t a cheap crappy
    One from eBay .
    Perhaps I will try another, could you recommend a supplier ?

    How did the battery replacement go?
    I bought a cheap battery from china. It charges to 100% from 50% in about 35 minutes.
    I power off the watch off by holding the switch/button below the crown for 10 seconds. Only issue is, the series 1 takes a few minutes to boot but benefit is an extension of battery use time. I also have found that keeping the watch on charge, over the long term, may result in the swollen battery issue. That is what I blame, given no indication as to a defined cause from the watch manufacturer.
    There may be an issue with the watch's OS which may be fixed by a reset and an unpair/repair; advice I found on the net.
