    @Gordon it seems that with the latest cutting edge firmware my Bangle.js is back in business. Thank you!

    @Gordon from the first 30mins - it's looking good. And if I trust the battery level it even charges the watch without a power plug :-)

    @Gordon yes, it's now running the latest version. I will report the next days and I will also re-enable the second interval.

    I can only repeat my point from the other the thread: If I reduce interval calls the battery lasts longer. The more interval calls I have the more dramatically the battery duration drops. Just an observation for my case, but I like to remind to this.
    In detail: my watch app has an interval event even without active display every second (yes it's not best pratice, but for this although a good idea) Battery lasted with V5 more than one week, even if I paint the watchface without display on. If I do it now with latest fw battery lasts two to three days. From my point of view the interval causes got more battery consumption. I can't tell where the underling problem is (e.g. power saving). But maybe this is a hint.

    Uh, I tested it with several versions. It started with the versions that include the new font as far as I remember. I suggest to compare the latest version before the new font and the the latest edge version.
    The problem must be in interval oder date, which seem to be much more expensive than before. Even calling evey second the watch lasted one week. With the latest versions it lasts less than the half. Even when disabling this the runtime dropped.
    Thank you for taking this serious!

    So I analyzed it for my case: I used a one second interval to test for full hour to produce a chime. This was no issue before, but after firmware upgrade (also latest) this leads to drain. When I disable this, the interval battery drain stops. It involves only interval, date and 24 times a day a buzz.

    I changed nothing for weeks but the firmware. Before it ran for more than a week, now sometimes less than two days. And it is unpredictable. It drains slow than suddenly fast. It's also strange that the battery widget shows "old" values. My app shows other values (widget from app loader approx 90% bar, my app 56% as a numeric value), but the drop was not that high in the widget update cycle.

    Hi,
    has someone a similar experience? I updated to 2v06 and after this the time on battery drops from more than one week to two or three days. It might be that my Bangle.js is a special case where this effect is getting more visible than on others. I'm running a hour buzz chime which (unnecessarily) checks every second if another hour is over. But this (and also the 24 buzzes) did not drain the battery that much in the previous versions.
    Something is different in this version.

    Tx
