 Battery Life

 The battery life depends on the features enabled on the watch, such as GPS, Phone notifications, and Connected phones. Without using services like music providers the battery can last for 42 hours. We tested the watch on a two-day backpacking trip using 9 hours of GPS, when we finished the journey we had 75% battery left. The battery life should be okay with its users.
