Is Samsung doing anything to fix theor latest update and the issues it caused with battery life? Seems like this isn't the first time this has happened.   I have a 2 month old watch now that I can't wear for more than 2 hours a day.

I'm wondering the same thing!  I am going to be infuriated if my expensive watch continues to be nearly unusable after this update. I can't periodically stop my day to charge my dying watch, and I'm more than a little p&sed off that I spent so much money buying the d&mn thing.

No I've turned off notifications and apps and everything I could and everything that was suggested when I Googled the issue.  I got the watch for Xmas and it worked perfectly for 3 months.  Because it doesn't get alot of action, the battery would easily last 2 days before needing a charge.  And even then it would only be between 50 and 60 battery life left.   It updated and it literally will die within 2 hours.  If I put it on airplane mode it will almost last 3 hours.  It charges super slow now also.  I searched and it looks like this happened last year with one of their watch updates too.  Its kind of alot of money to spend to only get 3 months of service out of it

Just as a data point, my watch is running fine. LTE

My Active 2 LTE was purchased only 60 days ago, and I'm already having trouble holding a charge for more than 4-6 hours.  My daily usage is minimal, i.e. time, steps, and a couple of texts.

These batteries must be poorly designed - or very OLD!
