Battey drain

I recently updated my galaxy watch 2. Since the update my watch as been dieing very quickly. Last night I went to bed with 50% and woke to it being dead. Why is this happening and how to I fix it?

Re: Battey drain

make sure none of the "pairing and finding" options have been changed. Sounds like it's being bled dry when not in use and that's usually from a background application or the device itself trying to constantly stay connected whether for push notifications or background processes. I'd go through and see which ones are running constantly that aren't needed while sleeping and put them to sleep

Re: Battey drain

Check Background Apps and Stop Them.

 

In my case, the stock Gallery App was stuck running and sucking down all of the battery life, even AFTER several shut downs & reboots!

 

Here's how:

On Phone

Open Galaxy Wearable App

Press the top summary where it shows the watch face, battery, etc.

Press Battery

Look at the Apps near the bottom under "Battery Usage Since Last Charge"

If you find a high-usage app, Press it, then Press "Force Stop" (bottom-right).
