    How did you set up your series 5 if you had a previous model? I had the series 4 and when I set up my new 5 I did as mirroring my 4 and not as a new device

    Battery life was great first couple days. This is my 2nd week on it. 8:17 pm at 27%.

    I removed a lot of notifications that I don’t need to have on my watch. The first few days would be at 65% or so at 9 pm. Not happening now

    Should I reset and set as new device? Other than this I love the watch

    Have you recently installed an app on your iPhone that also has a watch app or complication that could be using a significant amount of battery?

    No

    Battery is better today
    I actually turned off a lot of notifications
    Verizon won’t do anything
    Tech says nothing wrong
    When Apple stores reopen I will have it looked over

    One thing I did was turn off background refresh. Even though you do this, complications will update. I wear my watch all day and sleep with it to track my sleep( I have sleep apnea) and when I wake my watch is between 45-55%. I also did what you did and turned off all notifications except texts and phone call etc.
