On most Android and iOS devices we do not see any battery usage issues, however, on a handful of devices we do and we will get to the bottom of this very soon! When we first started on iOS, battery drain was an issue. With some tech wizardry over the past year, the iOS app is no longer in the top-5 battery drainers on most iPhones.
If you are experiencing battery consumption issues, please try turning on battery saver (look for the small "battery" icon on the left of your main progress bar). This will greatly reduce battery consumption, however, it can reduce steps counting or steps being lost at the beginning of each walk. To avoid this from happening, simply open the app when you leave your home or office.
If you suspect the app is having an effect on your battery, check out your phones battery settings where you can see how each of your apps consumes battery power - if there’s a significant percentage of usage, please let us know!
Please keep an eye out for our updates as we release them regularly while we work through some of these issues.
