watchOS 3 ensures shorter term of the Apple Watch? Background update could be the problem

With watchOS 3 Apple gadget for the wrist was reorganized, several features have been changed or are completely new . Among other things, Apple advertises that apps provide current data immediately. This information must come from somewhere, the magic word is background refresh. Great stuff, just for apps that you put in the new Dock. Calls have current data ready. Unfortunately, it follows also a problem, the battery life. The new models of Apple Watch come with a larger battery, but can not access to these owners of the first version. When I use the whole thing looked like that I come instead of 1.5-day period just yet on “throughout the day ” came.


But I have found a solution at least for my problem, which certainly worthwhile for other users. About the Apple Watch app on the iPhone can be the background refresh for individual apps or even globally disable. Apple has in the settings indicate that the deactivation does not apply to apps that provide complications on the used dial. So you need not do without the background refresh in this case, but can nevertheless completely disable it.

I’m not quite sure how it behaves with apps in the Dock. Upgrade me immediately when I visits. But obviously not in the background, because I can observe “the Exchange” of the display. This is indeed very fast and there is no comparison with an app launch, but the dock apps come maybe not immediately updated data to light.

I have the background refresh disabled, use four complications and have eight apps in the Dock. After deactivation of the background refresh has the battery life – again stabilized at the original level, without that I characterized large have compromises in use – with me. I’m actually not a fan battery-saving use, for example, have on the smartphone both Bluetooth GPS always active, in this case, it was even for me to indulge oneself. This may occur when using the other Watch naturally look quite different, your experience with the battery after upgrading to watchOS 3 I read of course like in the comments.
