Since yesterday i've got my Vivoactive 4s. Today at 11am i've charged it 100%. Now, at 4pm Battery Level is 55%. Just in Smartwatch mode
SPO2 is off. Wlan, Musik never used.
Are there someone else with this Problem?
This is happening to me too. I just received my 4s yesterday. Charged it to 100% at around 1800 last night, when i went to bed at 2200 it was 87%, and I thought that it was because it was new, I had just…
Garmin released an update version 3.30 that claims to fix battery drain issue with IQ Connect watch faces. I put the Lacesis face back on and will see if battery usage changes. The last charge I did to…
This watch is a mystery to me. All I can really suggest is to stick with it and eventually the battery drain problem might resolve on its own. I got my 4s in September right after it was released and now…
This is happening to me too. I just received my 4s yesterday. Charged it to 100% at around 1800 last night, when i went to bed at 2200 it was 87%, and I thought that it was because it was new, I had just paired it with my phone, was syncing alot, updating, tried a breathwork activity etc. Next day at 0500 the battery was 11%. I turned off the always on display, and at 0730 today it was 95%, and it is 0900 and it 89%. At this rate, with no other use other than it being on my wrist, the battery will be completely drained in 67 hours, which is nowhere near the 7 day battery life claimed by Garmin. I will try to update as much as I can later but this watch is likely going to be returned.
Setting on mine very similar with BT on, 10% screen brightness, wrist gestures off, phone alerts on except from 11:00 PM to 7:00 AM, screen is on auto lock to prevent accidentally activating anything. Pulse and respiration are tracking.
I charged this morning and since removing from the charger I have have been using 2% per hour so not bad but by no means the full week lasting charge (14% used in 7 hours, no activities recorded).
I have had a couple instances this week where it was draining the battery similar to some of the posts already made. When this happened I would make sure all widgets were updated, none were stuck trying to update and then reboot the watch. That seems to have slowed the drain each time.
I am testing as well - Garmin "approved" Lacesis watch face, no seconds display, wifi off, pulse ox off, smart activities off, heart rate ON, notifications ON. Basically making it similar to my Vivoactive HR which I could get over 10 days of battery life.
Charging now to use until it's drained.
