    Did you perform the battery calibration procedure?

    Is it unusual for a prototype to be sold at retail?

    I haven't, no, what's that ?

    I run the watch from 100% to near enough 0% each day though.

    Just got my new Connected 45 this week and can confirm the 2nd protective layer is still being included. I thought my screen had a defect until I read this forum and sure enough, it was the 2nd protective layer. Concerned about battery life so far. Will try the battery calibration method next.

    How did you find/remove it ?

    I can't see it, although there is a distinct lip around the edge of the screen (only felt with fingernail).

    Tried for a while with my nail and nothing lifts, I don't want to damage the screen though if it's not a protective layer.

    I do think there is one though as the screen doesn't look amazing and always gets finger marks all over it.

    I've just read the watch is a limited edition of 15000 - is this true ?

    Now you're asking ha!

    Read it in one site & Googled it and it appeared on another couple of sites. I'll find some links for you in a sec.

    Gen 1 wasn't limited, but the modular 45 is (apparently).

    There's a big difference between making an initial batch of 15,000 watches and calling it a limited edition. Tag expect to sell 150,000 Connected 45s. Those web sites reporting it as a limited edition run of 15,000 have got the wrong end of the stick.

    Yes, that lip is the edge of the protective covering. I just scraped at it until it tore a little bit then pulled it off. Its more like tape than plastic. With the sapphire screen I don't think your fingernail will hurt it. The screen is definitely sharper without the covering.

    Still on the first charge with my watch, fairly impressed with the battery even in early days. Used if for about 2 hours last night doing two updates and adding 6 apps. I powered it down overnight but didn't charge it as I want to run it to 0 as per suggestions. Today powered on at 7am and here we are at noon and there's 58% left. That's 6% ph with decent use, and I have the display always on.

    Question, can you change the "always-on" watch face that it reverts to after the time-out period? I'm not using WatchMaker as yet, nor StayLit.

    I can feel the lip but for the more that I try with my nails I cannot get it out.
