    I take it off the charger around 6:30 a.m. and by 11:00 p.m.--when I put it back on the charger--the watch has around 30% battery remaining.

    My experience is similar. I take it off of the charger at 6am. By 930 it's approx 50-55%. By 1130 it's approx 30%. I have it on max brightness and haptic feedback. I receive a lot of notifications per day and wear it while exercising for about 45-60 minutes per day. I'm very pleased.

    I'm pleased with the battery life, too. After reading all the negative reviews, I was worried; however, I don't even think about the battery anymore.

    I can definitely make it through 20+ hours with it every day. I honestly thought it would be worse based on reviews, but my experience has been fine with it.

    I've been really impressed. I have the smaller size and was worried when everyone started talking about it probably not getting as long a battery life as the larger size (smaller size, smaller battery) but I've easily got about 30% left in my longest day and I'm using it a lot... and showing it off to friends and strangers a lot. I use the fitness tracker in the morning, check emails and reminders all day, use it to control my iPhone podcasts, pinged my iPhone twice already (can I say that little feature is awesome!) and used the map. The map seemed to drain it the most but it was still acceptable and I won't use it for long trips anyway.

    38 mm sport 6 am to 1:30 am with lots of use (including exercise tracking for an hour) on max brightness = 12% left. I'm completely good with that.

    10 hours in today. Some pretty heavy use. 3 hr cycle ride. Turned email notifications off as I get so much junk. Currently at 66%

    One should have no issues with the battery, as long as the watch is used as intended.

    Mine hasn't dropped far below 60%. I actually think it would last 2 days.

    That's probably the longest I have seen an Apple Watch last.

    To be honest, I might not be using it as much as I should. I'm checking notifications mainly and the odd mess about, but that's it.

    Finally charged it today before leaving for work and it was only at 45% I didn't want it to die at work. Almost three days!

    8 hours I have used 15%. Notifications, set an alarm and been an all round hero for buying a Starbucks for a friend.

    I'm actually quite impressed by the battery life of my Apple Watch Sport 42mm. Last Sunday, I cycled about 2 hours, did an indoor workout for about 15 minutes - and the battery of the watch lasted from 9 AM to 11 PM. At 11 PM, it was still about 10 %.

    However, the effect on the iPhone's battery is devastating: When I start the day with a fully charged iPhone 5S, it is down to 60 % after two to three hours without really having done anything with it - no workout, nothing, just the Watch that was paired to it. That means, I have to charge my iPhone twice a day which hadn't been the case before. This is something I'm not happy with.
