Really like the Apple Watch. Really hate the battery.

Updated the watch last night.
Seeing a slight improvement and hope it is a trend.

Took the watch off the charger at 6:00am with 100% battery life.
At 4:00pm the battery is now down to 42%.

Before updating, the battery would be in the low 30% range at this time of day.
Maybe in a few days, I'll be closer to 50% battery life after 10 hours.

Are you using the heart rate complication on your watch face by any chance? I think I’ve found the battery drain culprit on my watch (after a Reset and rebuild from scratch brought battery drain back), and that’s what it was for me. I removed the complication and I haven’t had unusual battery drain for days.

Only complications I have is the Activity, Message and Date complications. I do have the Nike+ but it's not active (went with the Nike version because I liked the larger digital watch face).
