Re: Bose Sleepbuds 2 - Loses Power
Having used the first generation Sleepbuds for quite some time, I don’t recall having this issue. I traveled a lot with gen 1 and never had to keep plugging into power to get a handful of nights from the buds out of the puck. Basically you can’t take gen 2 camping because they’d be dead by the time you set up your tent. 😉
While I recognize the battery differences/requirements I’m hard pressed to think there aren’t software/firmware possibilities to either limit the amount of pings per day or possibly setting those pings to check against a sleep clock (i.e. check at 5PM to ensure full charge by bedtime). Providing options like this to the user via the app could provide the flexibility to at least allow people to select the appropriate option based on their preferences.
Regardless, I’m glad engineers are looking into this as I’m sure there are better options for both UX as well as power usage.
