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!!
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!!
Same issue here on my 46mm Galaxy watch. The latest update means I now have to charge it every day.
i hope a better update can be released soon to fix this issue.
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!!
I have a 42mm Galaxy Watch
Model Number: SM-R810
Software: One UI version 1.0
My battery lasted 2 days before the software update. Now it lasts like 10 hrs tops without using the principal features.
Someone found a solution to this problem?? Please HELP!!!
Ever since picking up a 42mm Galaxy Watch (non-LTE) a few weeks ago, I have been experiencing extremely disappointing battery life. While I expected to have to charge my watch every night, I had at least hoped (based on the advertised battery life) to have it last through an entire day. Yet, I'm finding that on most days, I am lucky if I can get 12 hours of use from taking it off the charger in the morning until the battery dies (see attached).
I should note that this is the best-case scenario, with all battery optimizations enabled (Wi-Fi off, NFC off, AOD off, GPS off, touch-to-wake off, auto-stress-tracking off, 10 minute HR intervals, and 10 second display timeout) and without using the watch to track any workouts. If I go for a run with the watch, I can expect that to knock another 30-40% off the battery, leaving me with maybe 6-8 hours of normal use.
This short of a battery life seems like it can't be working as intended, but I'm not sure what else to try: I've restarted the watch almost every day and factory-reset it half a dozen times since purchasing it (also to resolve issues I've been having with Samsung Health), I've tried completely discharging and recharging the battery. Is there anything else I can try to make the battery at least through an average day? Is this battery life considered normal for this model of watch?
