Smart charger connected now will leave it most of the day.

I had that once but the car hadn't been standing for more than a day or so. It was ages ago, most likely some time before I replaced the original battery. It didn't reappear after running the car. Can you check for codes? Check whether the car thinks the battery is worn out.

What age is your battery my  wifes car agm battery went down quick at 7 years old and had to be replaced although it still started the car, if it had been my own car I probably left it for a bit longer.

ISTA showed me a fault code for worn out battery when my car was 5 years old

I think this was round about the time I had the same warning as in the OP. The warning hasn't appeared since, certainly not since I replaced the battery so my guess was the old battery was losing charge fast enough for the car to panic and switch everything off.

Just checked mine mate (first time using bimmertool) and a bit concerned to see my SOH was 0% lol. No errors on mine though in general use but I have been using my car everyday.

Mine was exactly like that before it sat 20 days think that's normal.

 

My remaining capacity dropped 2 ah which is worrying.

Seems like a decent battery and few f10 530d owners have left good reviews.

Just remember to register the new battery to the car @marko530d and you'll be fine.

 

Edit

 

Register assuming same size as old battery, coding if new battery is of different size to what it should be.

Registration is available on bimmertool but not sure if changing size of battery is on there best get my ista sorted.

My F11 was doing this for most of January and Feb also, but I gave it a good 55 mile drive today to work and back and no warnings or notices to charge that battery now. Result!

 

It had sat at my house pretty much unused since December. Original battery and 63 reg.

 

Also passed the MOT today with flying colours. She’s a good old girl.
