    Anybody else? Does that mean you're having battery issues with the Watch?

    No with my phone battery. Seems to be struggling since syncing with my watch. Got home at 16:30 with 65% on phone and now down to 2%.

    I have not really noticed anything until today. I was getting driving directions and that seemed to hit the battery more than usual. The watch battery seemed to do fine. The watch was tapping and displaying directions as well as the phone. Other than than it has been good. Using a 6+, so battery is not really a issue though.

    My phone's battery hasn't been great (using a 6, 58% by 5:55 PM), but nothing as drastic as the whole 65% down to 2% thing.

    Got to think a process got hung up somewhere on that one.

    Actually, my iPhone 6 Plus is getting better battery life--since I'm not using it as much. I thought having my radios on 24/7 would cause an issue, but it hasn't.

    I get about 5 hours starting at 100% to 20%. Mostly usage time. This ole 5 has about had it. I'm ready for September.

    So, in September, will it be an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus for you?

    Is that while connected to the Apple watch. I think that is what OP is trying to say. His battery life on his phone has taken a hit since using it paired to the watch.

    My phone battery is still very good with the watch. Unplugged at 7:00 AM, 6hrs, 44 mins of standby and 1 hr, 41 mins of usage and I'm at 86% still. Watch has 6 hrs 44 mins of standby and 40 mins of usage and it's at 87%. I'd say they are both doing very well.

    Also, some people say to force close the Apple Watch App on your phone when you aren't using it because for some reason it drains the battery quickly.

    No, sorry, just my phone. Don't have the watch yet. I'll take it somewhat easy with the watch until I upgrade my phone in September.

    Yup, my 6 Plus usually lasts a day and half at least. Started at 100 in the morning and was down to nothing by 10pm. That has never happened before. Watch battery was great, had loads left.

    I did have the watch app open although the usage indicator didn't say it was draining the battery especially. Will see what today brings with the app closed.
