Apple recently released their new watchOS 6 software and now some Apple Watch users are reporting battery life issues since the release.
Some owners of the new Apple Watch Series 5 and owners of older models of the Apple Watch have complained about battery life.
On the Apple Watch Series 5 people have been having battery life issues until they have turned off the always on display feature, you can see what one owner had to say below.
Battery life coming from an S4 to the S5, battery life I find is not great. From a 100% charge on my S5 I was losing about 5% an hour doing nothing, it stayed like this for a few hours. To test I turned off the always on display and battery life immediately improved, for the next few hours I was losing at most doing nothing about 2% an hour which is pretty much close to where my S4/S3 and S2 were.
For me the battery killer is the always on display.
We suspect that Apple should be able to fix these various battery life issues with a software update, this was something they did recently for the iPhone and iPad, when this will happen remains to be seen.
