Battery lasts well after disabling default fitness and health apps. I use Google fit for tracking.
Location is always off
WiFi always off
Bluetooth Always On except at night
Always on screen - turned off since it drains battery little faster.
No fancy watch faces

I got more 24 hours with these settings.

I just registered to say that I was very excited to get this watch, but fortunately I skimmed the forum and after reading about the battery problems, and the worst, the lack of communication from Mobvoi on the issue, I decided not to buy it.

Its a shame that a lot of users post about the problem and the company does not give a satisfying answer or proposes some kind of solution.

I do not buy a smart watch only to disable all that it makes it smart, so this is a deal breaker for me.

I can confirm that my battery life has gotten better in the past month. I suspect there was a patch because I am getting nearly a day and a half with the screen always on!!! Fitness is on, and WIFI off. This is on my "E"

I'm not getting as good as you Goolac, but my battery has improved too. It was lasting only a few hours. Now it goes from 7 or 8 am to 10 or 11 pm and is only 50% drained. Its not been so great the last couple of days. Perhaps its an app i installed. The only thing i changed from the beginning is that took away the gestures. Otherwise its always on. I have WIFI and Bluetooth always on as well.

My hope is that Oreo will make it last a lot longer perhaps 2 days but given that I'm not making 1.5 days, i guess that's too much to expect.

I got my Tichwatch S 2 days ago, and I would say the battery life is horrible!... Seriously I charged it up to !00% and leave it on the table for about 5 hours, without even touching it. When I got back it was dropped down to 78% !!!!!! How is that possible?!

Found interesting guide on Ticwatch 2.

There is how to swap the battery , I am sure inside S and E models there is the same piece of hardware.

That dreadful time when you need to connect your watch... You can just literally count the battery level down to zero :( Here's to hoping it'll improve.

IMO typically a short batter life is going to be a case of having to much switched on. I can easily get 1.5 days out of my ticwatch e. I have wifi disabled (most apps will communicate via the Bluetooth tcp/ip via your phone) and I have also disabled the fitness & health system apps which are the Mobvoi fitness tracking (this doesn’t effect the google fit data).
Also a great app for monitoring and finding out what the wear is is actually doing (and where your battery is being used) is “quick system info wear https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... sinfo.wear
This will tell you what is running and what is using the network etc.
