watchOS 3 update problems with battery life limited

By Peter Chubb - Sep 14, 2016

It was another big day for Apple yesterday, as they launched software updates for three of its platforms, and those were iOS 10, tvOS 10 and also watchOS 3. We already know that there were a few teething issues with the latest version of iOS 10, which prompted a very early update, and there are reports that some people are having issues since updating their Apple Watch devices.

One Product Reviews reader said that they are seeing degraded battery life after the watchOS 3 upgrade, and then asked if anyone else is seeing this? Several users have been experiencing the very same thing, although from what we can make out, it does seem like an isolated problem.

From what we can make out, this does not seem to be a huge problem, and so we can only assume that those having watchOS 3 battery life problems are actually just using their Apple Watch far more than they usually would – which is understandable after a software upgrade.

The only other issue that we can see was actually how long the download was taking, although this is to always be expected on the day of a new release.
