I recently bought a Samsung gear s3 watch used on eBay. The first day everything seemed fine. Now I can charge it to 100% and it says it has over a day and a half charge but it drains down extremely fast and it only last a little over a half day. Am I doing something wrong. Anybody have any answers? Please help

I think that might be what happened to mine. I just reset it again. I wonder if I can skip the update.

if you find a good way to fix it, let me know. I haven't worn my watch in months because of how inconvenient the drain is.

Had the same issue while mine was still under warranty. When sent it to Samsung for repair it was noticed that the battery was swelling. Replaced it and no issues since then.
