Unfortunately, the bigger Series 5 model has almost the same battery (1.12 vs. 1.13 is not that big of a difference). I've had the S3 and S4 and the battery life of the S3 is exceptional. On a normal day, the S3 went down to about 66% battery, while the S4 always was below 50%, sometimes even down to 30%. I checked the PDF file and the S3 has indeed the biggest battery (1.34 Wh).

With the S3 I could easily do two days, with the S4 the battery dies during the afternoon or evening of the second day.

I can get 2 days easy on my series 2, so i have to say 18hr reported time for the series 5 is a disappointment. Still i will try it, i can always wear the S2 if i wake up to find i forgot to put the S5 on the charger.

18 hours was also the indicated battery life for Series 2.
