Battery drains suddenly

Hi all,

I have a Fenix 5 for 4 months already, normal use, normal battery usage ( charged every two weeks ) and suddenly, the battery drains at least 40% in one day.
Tried to remove all non-garmin widgets and no change.
Reset to factory settings and used with basic setup - the same problem, charged fully last evening, I am at 60% with no activity done, just normal usage.

Has anyone had similar issues?
I have raised a call with Garmin Support, this should not be expected on a 4-month watch.

  • UPDATE: the problem was not due to the watch face, I'm now using a very simple home screen and a couple of times the battery passed from about 40% to about 15%. Really disappointing.
    My feeling is that it's something due to a software bug. I'm thinking to ask the replace of the product, because a part from this issue is a great watch.
