Battery drain with Apple Music

I've ve had an Apple Watch Sport since September and never really had any issues wth it.

A couple of days ago I synced one of my Apple Music playlists to my watch and have noticed the battery is draining a lot faster than before. Struggling to make it through the day on one charge now. Has anyone else has this issue or is there a suggested fix?

If you have not yet done so, it may help to update your iPhone and Apple Watch to the latest software:

- Update the iOS software on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch - Apple Support

- Update the software on your Apple Watch - Apple Support

Otherwise, the following steps have helped to resolve battery life issues for some users:

  • Restart both your iPhone and your watch. Turn both devices off together, then restart your iPhone first;
    • To turn your watch off: press and hold the side button until you see the Power Off slider; drag it to turn off;
    • To turn it on: press and hold the side button until you see the Apple logo.

For the best performance from your watch, keep both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth permanently enabled on your iPhone.
