    I already contacted Apple about it and sent them the log. the woman claimed my battery life is in almost perfect condition. I called BS on this since i already bought it last May

    18 hours? eh ... not even close? I already rebooted it today, i dont even have any Apps on my watch and this happens ...any idea what could be the cause of it?

    I literally only use it to check the time or to have a look at incoming push notifications. I dont even interact with it

    Did you also un-pair and re-pair? Apple will (or should) ask if you've tried re-pairing it with the phone.

    Is it any better without any third-party apps installed? [never mind this question; I re-read your post after I posted mine]

    English please!

    Just kidding. It could be normal and your expectation is too high.

    If Apple says your battery use is normal, there is little you can do about it.

    How long is your battery lasting. How much are you using your watch. Installed any apps on it?

    Try to restore new and install your apps one by one. Same thing happened to me and it was an app that updated...

    Did you really think that the 18 hours refer to constant use with display on? Perhaps in Germany people are looking at their watch for 18 hours a day, but from my memory that is not the case. It means wearing time with normal use, and your watch has been going for over 24 hours!

    Well said.

    It's 18 hours of standby with some usage that the watch is "rated" to get. Often it can be pushed beyond that 18 hours (especially with the 42mm)

    OP's battery is fine and it's him expecting it to be 18 hours usage time.

    I'm guessing it says 2h 36 mins of usage and 1day 3 hours standby. The watch is only rated for 18hours of standby and some usage or 3 hours talk time and it already has 27hours so i would say that is very good. 18 hours of usage is wrong. The watch Is meant to be charged daily.
