My Galaxy Watch Active randomly started rapidly draining a few days ago during the night. During the day, power is fine, but when I go to bed with 80%ish battery, I wake up 8 hours later with a completely dead watch as in it turned itself off because the battery died. I've had the watch 14 months and am not using any new settings than I've always used. I even charged it so it was all the way to 95% last night before bed (10 pm), and I still woke up at 5:30 am to a dead watch. Anyone have any ideas? Thank you.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I didn't know about Water Mode (apparently there are many, many things I don't know about my watch...). I think the solution is the other comment that the update turned on my wifi, but I'll try this if that doesn't work. Thanks!
I had the same issue after the last update and then pairing to my new N20. Figured out finally last night that wifi was defaulted on in the last update. I was losing 5% per hour after the update, turned off the wifi in the settings on the watch, not your phone, and I'm now 11 hours later and at 90% battery still.
I may have found my solution at least.
You're right-- my wifi was on! I didn't even know wifi was a setting, honestly, so your comment about the update makes sense... I have never used it before, so I definitely didn't turn it on. Thank you!
If Wifi was on why wouldn't that drain the battery at the same pace during the day and not just while someone is sleeping? I have the same problem: I've tried wifi off, do not disturb, and good night mode. Nothing helped. I will try water mode and see what happens.
I am guess that it may be that my wrist is bent and the back of my hand it pushing one of the buttons that will in turn make the screen come on, which would drain the battery. Not ideal and not much of a solution...
I'll follow up.
