battery drains in couple days with no gps use, never happened before
seems to be happening on firmware 3.70
only using as watch when this happens now with no phone notification etc
We'd recommend by starting with a hard reset (holding power button down until the display turns off) before powering your device back on and using it like normal.
This will not erase any of your settings. This shouldn't be necessary normally, but it can often clear up odd symptoms like excessive battery drain.
I used 1 week 3.70 and 1 day 3.77.
Previous beta 3.52 was almost 50% more effective.
With 3 hours run (gps+glonass) + 4 hours bike (ultratrack) it was easy get 6 days.
I`m disappointed in 3.70 and will return to 3.52
I edited my post since 3.52 is not so effective. But now I have used 48% in 72 hours, runnung 2 hours with gps, cycling 2 hours - ultratrack.
---- update for 3.52 usage

Does Garmin even have a software testing team? Every single time there is an upgrade, I end up with issues. I've lost 75% battery in 24 hours and when I go to re-sync, Express drops the connection between the 245 and Garmin Express. So frustrating. This is my 4th Garmin product but it may be my last.
this has went from an amazing watch to rubbish with this update
And I don’t know how to update or go to previous version as support isn’t great
The number of times I’ve had to reset this watch recently is beyond a joke and then I’ve to enter details again like wifi
