I have already seen some posts on this, but no solutions offered. 

After larest update the watch losses 1% around every minute and half. 

Tried to do a reset, now the watch hangs on the automated connection screen. 

Very frustrated that the would release an update this poorly tested. I hope they address this soon.
 
Update: after removing the watch plug-in from the wear app and reinstalling it, I was able to reconnect. Appears to be doing better on battery usage, but still not as good prior to update. I have not re-synced my backed profile for fear of recreating the orginal problem.

I updated mine on 3/1 and battery discharges within 1 hour of full charge. I have only had my watch a little over a year. Very frustrating for sure.

I feel your pain! As an update, after removing the watch plug-in from the wear app and reinstalling it, I was able to reconnect. Appears to be doing better on battery usage, but still not as good prior to update. I have not re-synced my backed profile for fear of recreating the orginal problem.  May help, but a bit of a pain to do.

Thanks for the update. I uninstalled it after doing a backup then I re-paired it to my phone. It's a good thing I did my backup because it made me reset my watch to factory settings. I went ahead and re-synced the backup. My watch was at 86% when I got up this morning so for my watch issue your suggestion worked. Keeping my fingers crossed that it keeps the charge all day like it used to. Thumbs up to you!

go to manage devices in the options menu (3 bars upper left) select the watch you want to remove, hit remove. it will delete it and reinstall when you start a fresh set up.

Thank you! I'm really getting aggravated by this battery drain, in addition to my NumberSync randomly disconnecting.
