    Noticed that my 6+ battery is going down quite fast with the Apple Watch - and I'm not really using it a huge amount.

    What's the sort of rate I should probably be seeing, given the use of the iPhone for the Apple Watch.

    I would assume it depends on how many notifications are running. Other than that I can't see it consuming more than a Bluetooth headset. Am I wrong?

    That's what I thought, but it's definitely consuming more than my Jawbone did via Bluetooth.

    Short answer: no one really knows yet.

    It could be app implementation specific - like if the MLB app makes the iPhone work in overdrive. Otherwise it is using bluetooth quite a bit if the apps need a lot of communication.

    I'd be interested to know what your "battery shaming" screen looks like.

    Also keep in mind the new toy rule - you're probably playing with it a lot more than you will once you settle into normal usage.

    Funny you should say that, I'm not playing with it anywhere near as much as I thought I would. It's on my wrist and is just sitting there now, dormant. Maybe it's because I'm so tired though, it's been a roller coaster these past 2 days lol.

    I'm playing with it as much as I can given I'm at work, but not excessively.
