    Finally got mine this week,

    All black with black lugs, black bezel and grey leather strap. Really wanted "All black" so my store gave me a black rubber strap also. great service.
    First thing i noticed was the battery life, I also got a OG connected and the battery life of this one is about half as long as the old one. strange.. Does anybody have some tips i can use? screen turns already off.

    Thank's guys.

    Congrats; be sure to post some pictures.

    My OG Connected does last longer; you're not alone. Calibrate the battery; search on this thread for details. Also disable sensors you don't use.

    Hey guys. Owned both original and now modular 45. As with EVERYONE, the battery life is a huge concern but I just received the newest firmware last night (watch just shut off and loaded it on it's own). NXH19N. Seems snappier and I can confirm it charged to 100% last night for the first time!!! However, I am only 1 hour in to use today and went from 100 to 78. Arg. I don't have anything running except wifi and ambient mode. Will give it a day or 2 of full discharge and charge and report back.
    A couple of questions....I too find the smudges on this screen ALL the time. I have checked and it seems like there are no more films covering the screen (from shipping product). I am disappointed in the clarity of the screen as well....on different angles the colors wash out and get that rainbow effect. Anyone else? Second, I am SO disappointed to find out we cannot launch android pay with a tap, long tap, double tap of the crown. You have to click crown to turn watch on (from ambient mode), click again for apps, click android pay app, let it load and get ready. WTF. Tap and pay is for convenience. Maybe I am missing something but shouldn't the watch be able to detect NFC (like iphone does) and then tap and go? Any other solutions?

    Down to 44% after 2 hours. LOL. I sure hope this gets fixed by time, restart or new firmware!

    Try restarting the watch. See if that decreases the battery drain. There could be a process running that is over-consuming.

    Yup restarted and now 5% an hour. Still hoping for more but we will see.

    So wondering if I still have that second film still on the screen. Trying to carefully pick at the sides but doesn't seem like it. The glare is horrible, getting major blueish tinge on slight angle and smudges all over. How can I really tell?

    Try Settings > System > About > System updates
    Sometimes it works best when charging/fully-charged and connected to WiFi.

    NOTE: Until the update becomes available to "everyone", you may not see it, as they roll-it-out in phases. I cannot get it yet.

    Are you running the latest update?
    Or is this just after your battery calibration?

    I figured that but have picked at the edge of the glass at the bezel and can't seem to make anything come up. Will keep trying

    Does this look normal? IMG_0210.JPG all outdoors with the glare? And if you look close at second pic you can see the smudges.

    The new firmware actually has the ability to answer the iPhone now!!! Like it picks the call up on the phone not the watch obviously. In the previous firmware yes I had it continue to ring on watch but have not received a call yet on new firmware.

    I think you still have the 2nd protective film on. In your picture, the lower left periphery of the dial seems to suggest that.
