    Two days in a row I have had massive unexpected battery drain. I haven't really done anything different, so I'm not sure what the problem is. I have power cycled the watch. I normally have over 30% power when I put it back on the charger. Two nights ago I was at 7% last night the watch completely ran out of power.

    Any ideas?

    Have you had this issue?

    Have you installed any new apps, anything?

    Try unpairing and the pairing again using the backup on your phone and see if that helps.

    Reading other posts, seems to be something that some owners have experienced for no obvious reason. If power cycling hasn't worked, try unpairing and repairing.

    Thanks for the responses. I was really hoping not to have to repair the watch again. I had to do it a few weeks ago for some other issues. I'll monitor it today and if it continues I guess I'll have no other options.

    Same question from me.

    If an app doesn't behave well, it'll run crazy and suck power like it's cool.

    That was the first thing I thought about and I can't think of any new apps which I installed which had a corresponding Apple Watch app...
    I'll rethink about that though.

    The only app I updated that has an Apple Watch app is trivia crack. I've now uninstalled it from the watch. I'll continue to monitor.

    This happened to me once, about a month ago. Never before or since.

    Yours essentially fixed itself?

    This happened to me a few days ago. Only difference was that I purchased Carrot Weather. I've uninstalled it today to monitor the battery. Hopefully it was a fluke since I do like the Carrot Weather complications.

    I uninstalled trivia crack from the watch and it seems to be normal again. That sucks. I'm got to reinstall and see if it tanks again.
