    Alright since a few people on here are tracking battery life thought i would put my results or continuing results on here.

    Ok well before I start id like to say I have the vibration on medium, put the display brightness at auto, and Bluetooth always on, daily heart rate on and watch mode off.

    I dont know what percent its at because I don't have the charger with me but I have had my band on since about 7a Friday at 80% and I'm willing to bet its around 40-50% right now. So I'm getting from a user standpoint extraordinary battery life. Oh yeah from Chicago and wear it under my wrist if that makes a difference.

    It does appear different people get different levels. The website and instructions say to fully charge the band to start with which may take up to 48 hours!!!! But I doubt many people have done that. I still haven't done a 100% charge as that takes a while, but am getting a couple of days, so it does appear possible to get good battery life from the Band.

    I'd kind of expect it to potentially improve a little over time too if they work further on optimizations. Often firmware releases are first focused on reliability rather than maximum capability. Of course it is possible that this is it, but 2-3 days is pretty good.

    And I guess I'm lucky with the charging as well 1:30 later 100% showing. Probably a little less since I put it on at 30%. But looks like I lucky again with another MS product :)

    mine has been getting better it seems by the day, I stopped at the store last week and was told run it all the way down twice and then it should know what to do and they were right it is much better. I may still get a extra plug for the office in case I am going to be out and about later than usual so I can top it off before I leave
