Hi Rick! How are ya? Maybe they didn't implement the battery % because there isn't as much room for it as there used to be. I dunno.Loving mine. Launch day delivery, AT&T. The settings transfer using the 'pixie dust' that the watch uses was great. Notch isn't an issue. I do miss having the battery % on the statusbar,; Have no idea why they would remove that option. A quick swipe for Control Center lets me see it though.
