46mm Galaxy Watch battery drain NOT SOLVED

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Samsung - take ownership of this issue. 300 dollar watches should not become useless after 2- 3 months of use. 

In short - receieved watch as a Xmas gift. Pretty good features and about 4 -5 days battery life between charges. In the last week, the phone drains to dead in less that 5 hours. Previous readerboard entries say "solved" by turning off all features. 

What happened to make the battery life suddenly suck? I don't know, I'm not a multinational corporation with almost endless resources. I'm a guy with a useless watch who just wants it to work without me having to invest hours of my personal time researching.

Re: 46mm Galaxy Watch battery drain NOT SOLVED

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I'm purchased my Galaxy watch late last year.  Worked fine with plenty of battery life. Now (May 2019), even though I have changed no settings, the battery now drains in about 14 hours.  When charging, the watch says it has charged to 100%.  What has happened?  This needs to be addressed.

 

A side note, I did for the first time use PowerShare to recharge my watch with my new S10e phone. I don't do that regularly. Could that have something to do with it?

Same w me.

Started out 4 days ..now 1 month in, 50-60/% drain in 24hrs or less.

Telling me to turn off all the functions that make this device useful is not an answer.

Massive battery drain after sw update on galaxy watch

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I have a Samsung Galaxy watch and, after latest sw update I have identified some massive battery drains. Before update battery used to last about 4-5 days and after update it rarely last more than 2 days. My settings are exactly the same pre and after update and I have tried a lot of things. I use the watch connected with an iPhone and I have also noticed that many times the app stops running.

 

I have noticed that battery drains occur at some particular moments.

 

Samsung, I know that I am not the only one and it is unacceptable. Please FIX IT!!

For those looking for a solution to battery drain

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Try making sure that you have your mobile network turned off when you are around your phone and it can connect via bluetooth. I was getting about 8 hours out of my watch until I turned that off and now I'm getting the battery life I expected. I had mine set to auto detect, but clearly my watch was still looking for a network more often than i realized, and that's what was draining the battery. Hope this helps someone!!
