Just wanted to post that every since the last updates to my Galaxy Watch 4 40mm, everytime I use the timer function, it drains the battery down.  This didn't happen before the last update.  Anyone have similar issues or a work around?

Mine has been doing that as well and also the display doesn't work but I can feel the watch is working. Thought it was only me!

I recently upgraded from a galaxy watch 3 44mm to the galaxy watch 4 46mm classic and one thing that was immediately apparent is the absurd battery drain from the timer application. This doesn't appear to be isolated; many discussions are occurring on reddit and I've found similar discussions on Samsungs's boards. Restarts, forceed stops, cleared caches, updates, reinstalls, and even watch wipes are uneffective (purchased a new phone which provided occassion to factory reset). To provide context: 90 minutes of timer use consumed 13% battery on what is only a five day old watch. That's extraordinary for using a watch as a watch.
