A factory reset seems to have done the trick for me. Not just a normal reset but a true, hard, factory reset and a complete Uninstall/Install of the Galaxy Wearable app on the phone. I did not restore any of my backups. Such a hassle but at least my watch is back to "normal". Well, I'm still having issues with updating the Samsung Health app... so there's that...
I even did the reset and then backup from the app and still my Samsung watch battery drains 4x as fast. I went from 100% to 36 % while sleeping 5 hours. My watch can't even make it through the day. I'm starting to think I need to switch watches to a solar/ thermal watch charge and drop Samsung all together!
Updated my galaxy watch to one ui yesterday . My battery performance on my s10 (SD855) dropped dramatically . Screen on time reduced to 4.5 hrs . Previously it was 5.45 hrs .
Annoying battery draining notification keeps popping First it started with Spotify, so I had to uninstall it. But the same notification kept popping up even when Spotify wasn't there to be found. Then the same notification started to annoy me every single day about the stopwatch
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.
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?
I know there are plenty of threads here on the issue so I'm putting mine in too. Just bought 2 watches this week 46mm and 42mm both had got the update and it my wifes 42mm that has the battery drain issues shut every off practically and she just had it on LTE at work and it may have lasted 6 hours before it died. Samsung please help!!
