46mm Galaxy Watch battery drain.

JUMP TO SOLUTION

First charge of the watch, I got 5 days use out of it. I haven't done much, added a few watch faces, I have very few notifications set to come to the device. Second charge I got about 3 days out of the device. I'm on my third charge and had to charge it after 2 days with Samsung Health draining a massive portion of the battery. I have manual sync turned on, I don't use the workout features, not sure why the app is crushing my battery right now. I can't find a way to disable it, but I do use the step tracking, even though it kind of stinks, and the sleep tracker and heart rate monitor. I'd like to be able to keep using those. Suggestions? Anyone else getting progressively worse battery life?

Battery consumption increases when some apps are used. The watch provides various options that help conserve battery power.

Note: The available features will vary by the watch and software version.

Check for software updates to enhance the watch's performance, improve software features and security protection.
Activate power saving mode.
Close unnecessary apps.
Deactivate the Bluetooth feature when not in use.
Deactivate the Wi-Fi feature when not in use.
Decrease the screen brightness.
Deactivate the watch always on feature.
When the watch isn't used, switch to sleep mode by covering the screen with your palm.
Deactivate the voice wake-up feature in watch's supported voice assistance app (Bixby or S Voice). 
Customize the notification settings in the Galaxy Wearable app on the connected phone.
Do not expose the watch or the battery to very cold or very hot temperatures.

So basically you are telling me to not use the watch or any of its features. That's not tremendously helpful. The watch is stock. I have wifi off. I need bluetooth on. I have wake up gestures on. When Samsung Health is draining the vast majority of the battery I tend to think there might be a problem with how the app is playing with my watch. I get 3 notifications to my watch. Bixby is the most useless thing I've ever seen. It can't do the most rudimentary of things so I don't use that. The battery life has started out strong and has really struggled without me changing any key features but I've been removing features and what is the point of spending around 400 dollars on this If you are telling me to turn every feature off?

Not sure why yours is so bad. I'm getting about 2 to 3 days out of mine. I've had it on my wrist since 7:45 (so almost 6 hours) and have gone for a walk for 1.3 miles during lunch (no GPS, just auto detect) and I'm down to 92%. Pretty lightish use. Just looked at text and emails but nothing too heavy... I have 3 days estimated remaining...

Going to try that now. After the last update my battery is draining extremely fast. Less than a day before it needs a charge.
