    Default Heart rate?

    Is there a way to turn down the frequency of how often it's checked?
    My watch dies about half way through the day. I have a new org watch.

    This sucks

    Thanks all

    I can't imagine why your battery would only last half a day. The heart rate monitor is not the problem. Do you have anything runnng such as a workout?

    I'd put it in Airplane mode for a day and see if the battery life is significantly better. If so then, something using Location may be the problem. You could also check to see if you have apps refreshing in the background.

    Is your Watch 38mm or 42mm? The smaller Watch has a shorter battery life.
