    Haven't seen anybody start this thread yet but here it goes.

    This is basically my first full day of usage since fully charging. Still haven't done much except use Hey Siri a few times, checked time, responded to a few iMessages and played with the different watch faces.

    I've been pleasantly surprised. Ran with it yesterday and today, and still playing with it a lot. It's now at 70% and its 8:30pm. Had it off charger since 8am with the exception of 10 minutes while I showered.
    I'm sure with a full day of emails and texts and another run tomorrow it will get a good workout tomorrow. I'll try to keep it off charger all day to see how it does.

    I've used my watch quite a bit today, but I only have a little over two hours of usage.

    I took mine off the charger around 8:30am today. Took a 1.5 hour drive using the GPS/taptics, lots of text messages via dictation, some playing around with "hey siri", installed a few new apps, a good amount of notifications, and I'm at 47% at 9pm with 2h 49m of usage. Seems like i should have more usage... but i'm not complaining

    With my typical usage I really dont expect battery life to be an issue.

    I've been very pleasantly surprised as well! Right now I'm at 70 percent after a normal day of use.

    I'm at 59% after a normal 15 hour day. Battery is not even kind of a concern

    I'm at 52% with about 13 hours off the charger and what I would consider a light/normal use

    I am not getting battery life that is as amazing as everyone else. That is even with brightness turned completely down, most notifications turned off, etc. I am thinking maybe it is my device. If I don't see improvement after today, I will be going to Apple to get it swapped out.

    How about battery life on the iPhone? Notice any effect after adding the Watch?

    I've noticed a difference on my iPhone 6 Plus battery since getting the watch.

    As for the watch battery I'm at 75% and I took the watch off charge 9 hours ago.

    My iPhone 6 Plus battery is actually better--even with the radios on all the time. Why? I think it's because I'm using my phone a lot less.

    I usually am well below 20% after a day. Yesterday, I used it for 50 minutes for a P90X workout, used it at work all day, and kept it on (except to shower). Had it since Friday, and haven't had to go into Power Reserve mode yet, but I'm being careful, too.

    One thing I thought about was turning off the "Activate on wrist raise" setting on the Watch. I think a lot of the screen use is incidental, throughout the day, when I don't necessarily need to look at it. A quick tap could then allow me to control when I see stuff. I'm torn though. Anyone else think this could save significant battery life?

    Battery drain on my 5s is still the same levels, to me. It used 4.0 LE, which helps, of course. I keep an eye on Usage stats, and after four days, the Watch app only seems to have used 1% of the total battery drain.

    That's the expectation that I would have. I'd check notifications on the watch rather than on the phone when I'm out and about and such.

    Is there a thread to optimize battery life? (ie: turning off things that eat up battery that you don't need/use?)
