    Hi everyone! I have just bought brand new Nike+ 42 mm last Friday. It's good.

    Unfortunately I have got a ridiculous problem today. In evening I had checked it which battery was showing with 27. After 10 minutes later I got some notifications and it was showing that it had 6 battery percentage left.

    Have anyone ever met this problem? If you are, does it occur again after that? I'm still in 14-days returnable period.
    Should I request a replacement unit?

    It's probably fine, new batteries take a few cycles before they reach full charge.

    battery percentage reporting is also a bit fuzzy, It's not like the gas gauge on your car where they can see the liquid take up half the space. It's a guess based on the charge coming off the battery.

    If it keeps happening then i might think about a replacement, but for a one time thing i wouldn't worry
