Hi there

 

Has anyone with Apple Watch updated to the latest WatchOS 3.2? I am finding the battery charging time has dropped significantly since I updated to WatchOS3.2 (a couple of days ago). Normally 40 minutes or so on the charger gives me about 40-50% charge up quite easily. It has been giving me about 20-30% at present.

my Mrs has updated but doesn't pay attention to the charge times as it sits on charge over night.

 

I am interested if anyone else has your issue, I did have my watch burn through the battery a while ago but restarting it and re-pairing fixed it.

I find an occasional restart helps with battery. havent needed to go through repairing, which is soooo time consuming

I have done the restart. Now to the testing. I dont usually put my devices to charge overnight. I usually put the watch on the charger while i have my meals or shower. Charge it up just enough to get through the day and a bit. Maybe thats why I noticed it. Will report back when I have done some more testing

I have the same issue. I've had my watch almost 2 years. I wear it everyday, I know the battery life by heart. By the time I leave work it's normally at 57%, on average. I updated my watchOS yesterday and today it was at 15%. I have tried turning both my iPhone and watch off and back on, however I'm not seeing an improvement. It's odd.

am using watchOS 3.2 on a first gen Apple Watch, and am not seeing anything odd.

 

It's now 2hrs 20mins after I put on the watch when I left home this morning, and it is now at 99% full.
