    It's about time. I think all Android smart watches have been using the same chip since the original in 2015. Hopefully this will help with better battery life, and not so sluggish performance at times.

    Are you still running in watch only mode? All 3 of my AW watches have been able to get me from sunup to sundown on a single charge. I'm OK with that, anything less would be unacceptable to me. I'm ok with plugging in my watch to charge every night while I sleep. But I'm talking in general....there is no reason these watches should not run for days on a single charge. It's been well reported many times since 2015 that the original (and current - in use today) chip is not the most power friendly.

    my samsung gear last at least two days. I tend to put it on the charger most nights. maybe the new cpu will help the new aw to last a lot longer.
