In the beginning I had mine at the lowest setting to conserve battery. When it became apparent that I don't have to worry about the battery I just put it up to the max and forgot about it.

Max.

Just checked and I'm at 46%... From yesterday. Didn't charge overnight because I stayed elsewhere.

I have my watch set on the brightest setting. I put my Apple Watch on over seven hours ago and my battery percentage is at 87%, so no worries with the maximum threshold setting for me.

Yeah I'm really pleased with the battery life. So far today I'm at 14 hours 36 minutes since I put it on with 1 hour 33 minutes of use and my watch is at 64% battery. No problems getting through the day.

Started it off on lowest but it's been on Max and hasn't been a big battery drain. I don't constantly check my watch either and always have power to spare at end of day.

Why not just post "Here are the brightness setting options as typed by various forum members."?

Some settings are simply not poll worthy.

I have mine set to MAX. I have no issue with battery and no problem placing it on a stand overnight.
