So far 14.20 has been positive for me with the battery. Doing spot checks shows it back to .3 percent per hour and staying consistent.
Still 6% in 6 hours.
I can't believe it takes Garmin months to figure out the problem.
I even got a replacement a few days ago, when contacting the support regarding the problem.
With that performance the watch isn't even close to advertised and no use for my purposes when using in the mountains.
Even when not using GPS the ABC functions are not available safely for a period of 3 or four days.
So the watch is worthless for me. I am not willing to carry a additional power source around just to feed a non-functional watch.
Prior to this issue I had 12+ with everything on, except GPS.
The 350€ I paid is a little to much for that poor performance, which I see since months now.
Update: a ffullcharge and a reset with the light button it seems to be holding much better. I will see in a couple of days if we are back to normal.
8% in 8 hours just going about my day with no training. Maybe the latest is a little better then it was, but not by much.
My watch is a sapphire version, standard Garmin digital watch face and no apps installed. There should be nothing to keep eating the battery.
