Galaxy Watch (All Sizes) Poor Battery Life

If you got one of the smaller galaxy watches I'd like to hear what kind of battery life you're getting and how heavy of a user you are. Yesterday when I got down to 15% I checked the battery stats in the app and I had only gotten 1 day and 54 minutes. That was with an almost hour long walk playing music and using Samsung health with GPS. I feel like I'm actually getting worse battery life than I did with my gear S2 sport. The 2 biggest drains are Samsung health and Bixby. I changed the setting for the automatic heart rate sensor from every 10 minutes to never. I really only care about that when I'm working out anyway. Just curious what others are getting with the battery.

Going to second this. I actually got the 46mm version because of the bigger battery, but it's so BIG on my wrist and kinda uncomfortable. I would like to know the battery life as well to see if it would possibly worth the switch to the smaller unit.

On my 46mm Galaxy watch I'm getting a little less then 4 days.   Far from the 7 days Samsung advertises.

Is yours LTE? On my LTE 46mm version I'm barely getting 14-15 hours. Thinking it might be defective. At least I hope so and this isn't normal.

42 mm black LTE HORRIBLE battery...I get maybe 10 to 12 hours with basic use...i.e. using it as a watch....if I use it for excercise 30 min or so, I get about 6 hours of battery life. Dealing with Samsung on this issue has been a real pain. I now have to send the watch in for repiars.

 

My advice if you are looking at the 42 mm with LTE hold off....there are some real problems with at least some of these models.

Been tracking my battery usage constantly since I picked this watch up on release day. 42mm Black, non-LTE, no AoD, all sensors on factory settings. Really the whole watch is basically at factory settings with a moderate 15 min workout each morning. 

 

I am consistently experiencing about 48 hours between charges (49-50 hours if were being exact). This was about what I got with my S3 Frontier, but I used AoD on the S3.

 

I do sleep with the watch on at night in goodnight mode. I do not use battery saver mode, even when below 15%. Trying to get an accurate battery life under normal use w/o enacting battery saver or tweaking sensors.

 

So all said and done, I'm satisfied with the battery life being that this is smaller than the S3. Takes about 2 or so hours to charge the watch when I take it down to 2 or 3% battery life. 

 

Hope that helps you guys out

How do you get about 2 days? I could probably get about 1 day in a half.....

I'm getting like 4-6 hours in the day not using it excessively just fiddling a bit. Then went to sleep with it on at midnight in goodnight mode with 84% charge...I woke up (my alarm had gone off a couple times) but I was mortified to see I had 3%

 

Mine is the LTE 42mm but can't get data to work on it (currently waiting on EE to get back to me after spending a long time on the phone with them the other day). So for the meantime I'm connected via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi but I'm disappointed so far in this £400+ watch :(
