How much battery life did your 120-minute outdoor cycle cost you? I lose almost a percentage of battery for every 2 minutes of outdoor cycle I do on my 38mm model. A 120-minute outdoor cycle like yours would cost me 60%!

:eek:! I think it cost me 30%! I hope your battery isn't defective.

EDIT: I have a 42mm.

I have a 38mm; if a hardware issue isn't causing my crummy battery life, I may have to return it for a 42mm model just to get through the day. My 75 minutes of mixed workout activity on a typical day is costing me about 32%.

Yeah maybe. I did about 20 minutes of work out today (didn't check percentage before/after sorry). But I'm down to 8% with no charge at all during the day.

Pulled off charger: 7:00AM
My current time: 11:54AM.

Today, a 50 minute indoor spin class only took 10% of my battery. I really love the activity tracking.

It came off the charger this morning around 6:30 AM. When I got home around 8 PM, it had about 40% battery left. I wore it all day, and that includes the 50 minute spin class I had.

I am very satisfied with the battery life.

Anybody know what defaults are if you don't set your height weight etc?

Light? Moderate? Active?

Mine doesn't even count a 15 minute walking mile as exercise. I beg to differ.

----------

I did 2.5 and got credited with 6 minutes?

Went for a 25 minute walk tonight, tracked in the Workout app, with my kids and it credited me 7 minutes of walking in the activity app. That's disappointing. We did only average about a 20/min mile, my kids are little, but still. It's walking. It should count for something. :mad:

Walking is not a workout, you want credit for walking get a fitbit:) Walking counts toward your active calories. I'm kidding, seriously thats what i love about the watch it pushes you to get truly active!!

Anyone know how to reset the activity app to when you first pair the watch? I want to start over, erase my data and do it seriously now?
