    Hello,

    Posted this in the wrong forum earlier!

    Had my watch on since 7:30am, its not 1:30pm (almost) and my watch has 22% battery left.

    All notifications are off apart from whatsapp, always on screen is on and auto brightness is on.

    I haven't noticed it go down this quick before, any tips to make it last a bit longer?

    Thanks

    Does it happen with a WatchMaker watchface, or with one of the factory installed faces?

    Standard watchface - just using the 3 hand 2020 watchface at the minute.

    It’s not normal, because the standard watchfaces are more battery friendly than WatchMaker...

    Did you calibrate the battery?

    I haven't done anything to the battery mate, just had it on charge overnight, was on 100% then went down quicker than it ever has before!

    Try this, to see if it’s just a calibration issue:

    Charge it up to 100%, go to watch settings/system/battery and switch off the battery saving mode (and also the battery saving mode at 10%), and use the watch until the battery is completely discharged and the watch automatically turns off. Then put it on the charger and do not remove it until it is 100% (it should take about 2.5 hours). Repeat that same process (100% / 0% / 100%) at least one more time (ideally two more times), and the battery will already be calibrated and giving its best performance
