Hi, how's everyone's experience do far? Mine has been mixed tbh. Third party watch face complications very glitchy especially as steps / HR on the face dont match the step widget or S Health.

 
Battery performance is utterly dreadful, lucky to get 24hrs. Battery died completely overnight, full charge to zero in 12 hrs. Already been advised factory re-set after 3 days use!
 
4/10 so far.....

Currently charging each morning.

Mine goes down overnight but during the day typically only lose 20%. Normally at 40% usage by the next morning. I only charge as it is more convenient to charge whilst I'm having coffee and breakfast.

Recong I could get 36 hours out of mine and it is still learning. If it is like my note ultra then will get a massive increase again when that process completes.

Hopefully will end up at 48 hours life. Considering my last wear os watch barely lasted 12 hours that's a massive improvement

GW4 46mm "No LTE" OK so after you have played around installing and deinstalling stuff back the watch up then do a factory reset and restore it and you should get 2 days, I get close to 2 day with display always on GPS on HR on constant NFC off and WiFi off screen brightness at 25% auto brightness off Raise wrist to wake off touch screen to wake off turn bezel to wake also off and this is with power save off  I think because we are all still playing with the device as it so new we ourselves are reducing the battery life HOWEVER I do think on Samsungs part more work needs to be done in the coming months to optimise battery consumption.
