    Anyone check their usage through the apple watch settings on iPhone?
    How do they come up with the 18 hour battery life, is that with standby and usage together? Because I'm at almost 3 hours with 58% and 12 hours standby.

    Dunno how they came up with the 18 hour life, but the consensus here in the forum is that it doesn't really matter because the watch lasts a lot longer than that. I usually end the day around 40-50%.

    Mine lasts longer Than that too, but last time I had 24 hour stand by and 4.75 hours of usage and it brought me to 10%. So technically the usage time isn't 18 hours it's wayyyy less than that.

    While it's actually more than 18 hours, the battery life is definitely a combination of standby and actual usage.

    Awesome! That's what I wanted to know! Didn't know if it was a total of 18 actual usage hours or both usage and standby together.

    I took my watch off the charger at 6:30am yesterday morning and haven't charged it yet. It's still at 33%.
