Battery Life

Post by Kevin Maschke » Wed Nov 02, 2016 1:46 pm

Hi Folks!

Just received my watch and have been fiddling around a bit. I charged up to 100% and then put it on my wrist. After around 30 minutes, my battery is down to 60%!!!! I haven't done anything extraordinary with it: received some notifications which I cleared, apart from one were I tried the reply option; changed the watch; connected the watch to the WiFi and disconnected it from Bluetooth thinking that it may consume less battery.

After another 10-15 minutes it went down to 45-50%.

At this rate, the battery won't last more than 2, maybe 3 hours... Anyone else experiencing this? Anyone know away of saving some battery?

Thanks!

Kevin.

Yesterday I have used mine Ticwatch 2 for the first time the whole day. Started using it at 06:30 and used it throughout the day until 22:00. Starting level was 100% and my end-level was 6%. I also used it to test my GPS (battery drainer), by tracking my bike ride of ~30 minutes.
Not the experience you have, but maybe good to know.

I received mine yesterday, played around with it a bit, charged to 100% and left it on the desk overnight, by this morning it was totally drained - so 8 hours with no use and it's dead, not happy at all. Will see how it goes over the next couple of days

Try to put into power saving mode and enable flight mode when you left the watch overnight. I've been doing that for the last 2 days and found no battery drop the next morning

I got about 15+ hours of use. Charged to 100% overnight. Left for work at 0800....out whole day and night until 2300. Ticwatch2 went into power saving mode when it hit 10%. Settings - high light, ambient mode. Normal usage with notifications and alerts. Paired with iphone 6s with a little problem which had to reset to factory settings.

I found that turning off the "OK Tico" feature improved my battery life significantly. I have most of the gesture features turned off, no Wi-Fi, no GPS, low brightness, with ambient mode on, and I'm getting 10% loss every few hours.

With me it last for a day, get up at 06:30 and go to bed at 23:00, usually have 10-20% left at bedtime

My trusty old LG G Watch can go 4 full days with moderate use without a single recharge and it has a 400 mA battery, so not much bigger than the Ticwatch 2.

I guess you can test the maximum life by running it as only a watch. The fun things done together with a phone saps battery, same as other smartwatches. I got 30 minutes with TW2 out of the box, got 2 hours for 40% after full charge.
With stabilised use (e.g. alerts) I'm at 75% for 5 hours, average 1 msg per 10 minutes.
