I made some tests during the last days and I found what causes that heavy battery brain on my Fenix 5s.
I used the following widget to take my measurements https://apps.garmin.com/fr-FR/apps/5e49aebc…
from a week I installed the fw 12 ... my watch is reborn ... currently I am at 60% of autonomy and it is from last week that I do not load it since I installed the fw (and it was 90%).
My fenix 5 is now doing the same thing. I’m losing about 1% per hour, not doing anything special. Tried removing everything that’s not stock garmin (except the battery gauge widget), still terrible. My friend has the same watch, his is still doing great (<7% per day with activities). I have 14.1 software, I think it was released to fix the battery drain in 13 but it didn’t. Garmin said they’re evaluating and I have to just wait.
Not sure. I tried to downgrade and wasn’t able to. I asked Garmin how to do it and they said it’s not possible. I found old releases and lots of forum posts where people have done it, but no directions on how to do it. I would love to go back to 12.X until they fix this problem, I lost 27.5% over the last day and only did one workout (no GPS).
