S9P did not charge anymore - reboot helped
If your S9P is connected to the charger but does not start charging, switch it off and on again. Helped for me.
@_marcus_ You need to charge the watch?
The S9P has such an impressive battery life that I almost feel like selling the charger.
It is empty after 7 days. Impressive battery life has the COROS Apex Pro or Vertix, but not the S9P. Sorry…
(24/7 measuring, 6 running/biking activities per week)
@_marcus_ as long as you don’t use sensors and navigation backlight etc. Then papala
@dimitrios-kanellopoulos I use both all day and for all activities with same settings for GPS, same sensors paired: Apex Pro has 25% more battery. S9P is a nice watch, but regarding battery Apex Pro is better.
Right now when I write it here
Apex Pro 86%
You should know better but that is what I read a couple of time ago. I trust you though.
Not that s9P might not get affected or it has more 24/7 juice.
I don’t come to start a war. I only observe that some things on coros have such a huge impact.
@dimitrios-kanellopoulos no war of course. It is just what I see in daily usage of both watches with normal use cases:
Fitness tracking all day, recording running/cycling/hiking activities without navigation, no messages from the phone. Stryd and Polar Verity Sense connected when running, Polar VS, cadence and speed sensor while biking.
There are 2 differences. The 1st one adaptive lighting lowest setting is on that I can read the display which I do not need on the Apex. Sensors are paired with ANT+ on the Apex because yes it consumes less energy and why shouldn‘t I use it when the watch is offering that.
So both watches are configured for my use cases in the optimal state. And this gives me the difference in battery life of 25%. Yes I could switch of adaptive light but then I can‘t read the display as good or fast as I want. And in the end it is 7 days compared to 9 days of usage.
@_marcus_ just out of curiosity, does 7 vs 9 day charge cycle make a difference? I charge my s9 every 3-5 days and it does bother me just a little.
@dmytro It is 25% more. So when S9P has impressive battery life as said above, then what has the Apex Pro or even the Vertix? Whether it makes a difference, everyone must judge for themselves.
Every 3-5 days would annoy me. No need to talk about S7 or Apple Watch…
@_marcus_ 5 days and less annoys me as well. 5 days is the limit.
FWIW I purely use my S9B for running, I don’t wear it through the day therefore none of the HR monitoring, notifications etc are enabled. I usually charge mine every 10-14 days and that’s averaging around 70-100km/week of running
On the mountain race I did last weekend I was running for 7hr40 and after I had stopped recording my battery was on 74%. Pretty impressive considering the GPS and everything was set to optimal
