    GMW-B5000 Battery Level Not Great Despite Sunlight

    The battery level on my GMW-B5000 never gets above about 55% and often is lower despite generous amounts of sunlight exposure. Anyone else's like this? Other G solars of mine hold high charge consistently. Thanks.

    How long have you had it? If you’ve had it a long time, like weeks, how much sunlight does it see?

    Solar Casio need days and Weeks of strong sunshine when down.

    Once they get a strong charge of many Days, they usually hold it high with shorter periods of Sun.

    RTFM

    The manual says to fully charge, it needs 168 hours of strong direct Sunlight if sitting inside a window directly in the Sun.

    Where is the battery percentage shown in the app? All I can see is just the battery/sun icon on the top left in the app

    That's the one, bratz. I'm sending the watch in for evaluation as it's still under warranty.

    I think the lower power levels have something to do with bluetooth. Both my MTG and GMW usually drop down to around medium-high levels of charge overnight.

    Thought there was a percentage shown in number rather than the level bar shown on the icon

    why? if you left it in direct sunlight for the amount of time youre not going to have it while its getting looked at, it will be fully charged :? (probably even sooner)

    Last summer, I experienced a similar issue but with my GW5000... the battery wasn't holding its charge so I opened her up and changed the battery to a new one...it's been on H ever since.

    I left mine for two sunny days on the panel of my car to charge it from the half to almost full
