Good day!

Anybody noticed fast battery draining since the update to 2.2?

First day, I went to bed getting my first 20% "low battery" warning, waking up next morning to a dead battery (watch was completely turned off).
My watch seems to be losing 30% battery a day, for the last 2 days.
I used to lose 10% a day, maybe a bit less...

It may be the watchfaces I have installed, but I haven't made any significant changes since the update.

I think I experience the same thing with the battery drain of the new firmware, go back to 2.1 for now

I was still loosing 30% a day on 2.2 after a few days, full charge.
Also, my friend with a Steel had the same issue.

I use to get 10 days on 2.1.... hopefully they can fix 2.2 to bring back the extra good battery life.

I went back to 2.1 from PebbleBits.

Same here, losing 40% in 19 hours. May have to downgrade if updates don't roll out soon enough!

No problems here. I'm getting an easy 5 days and hitting 40%. Had 100% Monday morning. Its 4:43 pm on Tuesday and I'm at 90%. I don't use alot of whistles and bells - just time and notifications. Maybe that's why? New user and probably haven't figured out all it can do yet.

Note: Just checked and my version is, for whatever that's worth. I updated just a few days ago though.

I've had mine since christmas, and even at that time the battery life wasn't that great, but that changed when we hit 2.1 (I think...).
Maybe I'd have to try and do a factory reset after re-installing 2.2.

What I find strange is that I haven't changed anything, same watchface, same apps.... just a new PebbleOS...
On the same night I had installed it, I was at 30%. Next morning (8h later) the watch was completely dead. Unless I use my Pebble while sleepwalking, I don't know what happened there!
I have quiet hours setup too.

My battery life sucked as well on 2.2 I just reflashed pebblebits 2.1 this morning so I'll see if it really was 2.2 it my imagination.
