So about a week ago (9 days to be exact) my Gear s3 Frontier went from 92% to 15% within 5hrs. Until then, I would get almost 2.5 - 3 days on a charge. I work for the post office and walk 10-15miles daily and my watch always worked and would sustain a charge for 2.5 - 3 days.
Now, I'm lucky if I can get 12hrs on a fully charged battery. I've done a reset, I've done a bunch of resets (ones with no back ups restoring, ones with backups restoring) and it comes up with the same results. The battery lasts 10-14hrs if I'm lucky.
I've had this watch for almost 4yrs now (Christmas gift from my wife when I get hired on at the post office in 2017) but I'm at a loss as to why all of a sudden the battery loss is so great.
I'm using a Google Pixel 5 and I updated the Gear app last week, I've downgraded the gear app, i'm at my wits end.
If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.
Ok now I'm getting p1ssed off. I came here over a month ago and explained that my Gear S3 Frontier battery was draining quickly. Somebody suggested that my watch it's self is almost 4 yrs old and said I should replace the battery.
Well i replaced the battery a few days ago and it made no difference at all. Battery doesn't even make it 10hrs on a single charge.
I've factory reset it, so at this point i know it's software related. I would like to know how to downgrade my watch software to Tizen 3x and uninstall things like Bixby and other software that can't be uninstalled.
I want to start from actual scratch not just a factory reset. This is extremely frustrating.
Anyone have any further suggestions?
