I loved this watch from the second a wore it, now it is just a paperweight due to the battery drainage issues. I have done anything that was suggested and still useless. It will be 100% charged and remove from charger and it is dead within 5 minutes. I put it back on charger and it reads 89%, I have not changed anything since I got the watch brand new but update it and that is it. Makes me very weary about buying anything Samsung now. I got a Samsung phone, a Samsung tablet and a useless Samsung watch

@bostonboy66 When did you purchase your Gear S3? 

Li-Ion batteries do eventually die. It may be time to replace the battery.

The watch was introduced in Nov 2016.

@bostonboy66 Typical Li-Ion battery life is 2-3 years so there is a good chance that the battery needs to be replaced.

So the a $350.00 watch is only good for 2-3 year? Samsung doesn't even sell the batteries to replace it. They want you to buy a new one every 2-3 years I'm guessing then
