Since yesterday my watch 4 has suddenly developed mega battery drain for no apparent reason. Fully charged at 11pm last night and down to 15% by 10am today with no change to any settings. Fully charged it again until approx 2pm and in 3hrs the battery has drained by almost 50%. This is significant and is going to pose huge problems being able to wear the watch for even a working day

Have you rebooted the watch? If not see if that sorts the battery drain.

It's worth clearing the cache to see if that helps the issue. Saves the hassle of reset.

This looks like a Brill tip thanks🙏. Going to give this a go as think this used to be a feature on older models but couldn't see where to clear the cache in more recent models. Thanks so much for the help

I am having the same problem since yesterday. Yesterday, my Watch 4 classic 46 mm died after 12 hours of extremely light usage. Today was better until I talked with LTE. I lost 22 % in 20 minutes of talking. Since then I am losing 1% of battery every 5 minutes. All apps are closed, I rebooted many times and I have it resting on the table with everything turned off. For reference, in 30 minutes (measured every 5 min) it went from 37% to 32%. So we are talking about losing 10% per hour! And i cannot make it stop. Unacceptable. It's one week old and I already hate the battery...

Watched mine this evening and worked out I should get around 6.5 hrs on full charge 🤬. Though the wearable app is showing around 10% drop an hour. Either way something has happened that isn't good.

Managed to find a solution yet please? Another day of frustration and wearing a watch that can't do much more than actually show the time. Certain amount of irony to that statement admittedly 🤣

Had literally zero improvement today after clearing the cache last night. Really can't be chewed with a factory reset but at this point I can't see any alternative. Really fuming with a device that is 2 month old.
