    79% off the charger for 8 hours in an area with almost no reception. Seems pretty good to me.

    Also, it seems to tracking fitness better I think.

    I'm on my 6th hour and have only dropped 10%. Wow! I have 90% remaining charge. I think it's safe to say that battery life is excellent on 'my' Watch...

    I did today. Normally I have about 50% at the end of the day with last Beta, but today it gave me 10% warning late afternoon. I unpaired and repaired just now, hope it helps

    I bet it will. Could be a specific app as well. If it happens again try to take out 3rd party apps / glances. to narrow it down. I have very few 3rd party apps and don't use a lot of glances. I am getting 3% per hour. This is improved over last version which was good.

    I swear the simple face killed my battery in a previous release. No one here had the issue. Saw one other similar speculation on a google search.

    Hope it works out.

    Cheers.

    Same 14 and half hours. Each beta has been getting better with the tracking via the Activity app. I'm on my feet all day working in concrete buildings with minimal AC. And multiple stories means climbing concrete stairs.

    Hi guys, I just installed the GM a few hours back, I was expecting that the watchOS 2 should allow the Watch to play music trough it's own speaker, or am I wrong?

    You can play music via the Watch's inbuilt speaker, from glances play some music using the remote and then go to settings and press the Airplay icon and choose Apple Watch

    I don't think so, i have tried with same wifi, with no wifi at all and disconnecting the iphone.
    What about the audio recording indeed? I don't see the app but i'm pretty sure that i can record vocal note with this upgrade

    Did they do anything new with the stock workout app? Specifically better GPS accuracy for outdoor running/walking?

    The Watch has no GPS of its own... it relies on the phone it's paired to for GPS data.

    Nope...

    Did you also update your Phone to the GM? If so did you Update or Restore and if the later did you encrypt your backup? Only encrypted backups store health data.

    Yes, i have update both the devices the same day to the GM, but i've update the iPhone i haven't restore it, anyway my local backups are codified/encrypted (you can see it from the attachment, sorry for the Italian picture). I can see the data from the Health app and only the sessions are disappears, my Activity ring are there.

    No worries about your Italian

    I would try to unpair and re-pair the watch.

    Will I risk to loose something with this procedure? Or it's totally secure?

    Un-pairing and re-pairing is a normal process and is safe as long as your phone and watch are sufficiently charged or better - connected to power.

    Just finished the procedure and nothing change. I think that the problem is in the iPhone because all the activity data are here. I will try to sleep on it and move on, seems that I can't do anything for restore the data.
