    This poll will finally let us know if the gps is causing the massive battery drain on watchOS 4 beta 2.

    On a beta version,its nothing strange that there might be some battery drain issues.

    I have tried everything that other people suggested and no improvements for me.

    For me it’s 10% battery drain per hour, so I have to put my watch in airplane mode to save battery otherwise my activity rings won’t be completed!

    I WISH mine was 10% battery drain per hour. I'm looking at 25-30% per hour doing nothing but sitting at a desk. Not reading messages on it, not playing music on my phone. Nothing. No maps, no GPS, nothing.

    i have found the work around! I've re-paired and turned off gym equipment long ago and was only getting about 10 hours from my series 2 watch.

    I forgot my phone at home this morning, and using my watch all day for things I could to on my phone if I had it, and using WIFI on my watch, I came home 10 hours later with 67% battery REMAINING on my watch. Before today I was getting about 10 hours before power reserve.

    I think iOS 11 is to blame. I haven't had battery life like this since installing watchos 4. Im leaving Bluetooth on my phone OFF till beta 3 comes out, and running wifi only on my watch.

    I also noticed that turning Bluetooth OFF in the shortcut screen didn't actually disconnect my watch from my phone. I had to go to settings>Bluetooth and turn it off there to actually disconnect my watch from my phone. Anyone else have that problem?

    Doesn’t someone have to have all three for this poll to have any use?
