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 am amazed at the comments saying the battery dies "at night". I can't even get my watch to last from 9 am to 9 pm. I've checked battery usage ... and settings seems to be using up all the battery. Can someone explain that to me.
If you get a fix for this ..................please post it. I've had the Active Watch2 for about 3 weeks .. and the battery will not last from 9am to 9pm. I'm not playing music, not connect to wifi or bluetooth, .... I basically use it for the time, messages (which I might get 1 every 2 days) and phone calls (which is about the same, 1 or 2 every day). No health, steps, heart monitor, mail etc. I just unistalled spotify, ... (I don't even know what the heck spotify is anyway).
I have recently started to experience this with my Watch Active. I use it as an alarm and have it in Goodnight mode AND Flight mode. Most nights this uses about 6% of the battery for the night but about 1 in 5 nights it drains completely from 100% about 7 hours and then powers off (with a vibrate that wakes me up 😠 (hmm -that was an emoji in the editor...)). Not much use as an alarm...
What is going on?
Just to report that following a couple of system updates in Spring 2021 this problem seems to be completely resolved - haven't see it for a couple of months. I easily get 24 hours out of the watch and the battery issues seem to have gone away.
