    I'm getting 5% battery drain per hour with display always on and wifi on with notifications coming through. Think that's pretty good

    Same here and that's using Watchmaker faces. The Grand Carrera is an ideal face for this. IMG_1161.JPG

    I get notifications from all my non gmail email accounts. You just need notifications on the iPhone switched on and alerts set to banners.

    My experience with other android wear watches (Moto360 v1 and v2 specifically) is that right after an update, battery life was degraded for at least a single charge cycle, but then improved.

    I'm consistently getting about 11-13 hours, averaging between 7% and 9% drain per hour just running mostly idle (but wearing the watch 'always on' everything else turned on. Right now I'm at 50% 6hrs in)

    Mine was 5% an hour upto a point and then got worse quickly. I did receive a lot of notifications during the afternoon but didn't seem right. I charged for 15 mins which took it to 40% and will last until I charge fully overnight.

    What are you guys doing to your watches ;)

    Mine is on 52% after 12 hours at work, all functions on average usage. Also haven't had the update - still saying System up to date.

    I'm 3 full charge cycles in and I'm now getting around 28 hours with lowish usage. Notifications on, wifi and Bluetooth on, occasional checking for updates. I'm on iOS.

    Heh heh ... good question!

    I run with everything on, gps, always on screen, etc.

    ... probably get 5-10 notifications per hour for various things, meetings, calls, text messages, app notifications ... I use the assistant a lot (very cool from the new assistant to be able to set my nest thermostat) plus I will launch the timer from assistant a lot (by the way, a cosmetic bug there -- if you say 'set a timer for xx minutes' you'll get a message that says 'I'm sorry I can't do that' ... however, the timer launches as expected anyway!)... I get notifications from google maps while driving, etc.

    This is exactly the same kind of usage that I have done with other android wear smartwatches in the past (most recently the Nixon Mission... and that gets through the whole day until late in the evening with > 40% almost always).

    ... and continuing to get roughly 12hrs of battery life ...

    This has to be a bug ... I can't believe that the hardware design between Tag, Google and Intel could be that flawed ... great hopes for this SW update!

    On the basis all their video promotions are '24 Hours with the Connected 45' I'd say it HAS to be a bug...unless they casually ignore the 2-3 hours you'd need to be charging it at some point during the day!!

    Surprised TAG haven't got this right, such a great company and this is not up to the standards any of us would expect.

    On another note, anyone here think the strap is a little long? My wrists aren't that big admittedly, and I have the brown leather strap and it's pulled as tightly on the clasp as I can get it. There must be some customers out there with big arms!!

    Yes, mine has the blaxk rubber strap and it is definitely longer than on V1. Its OK for my arms, but not the optimum. I would wish that there werw shorter straps as accessoires .

    I trimmed my rubber strap-- on the tag site, there's a template, they will trim for you if you send a measurement when ordering.
