Same here, battery drains very quickly plus fitness app broken. Tried tracking a run today, fitness/running app tracked for a few seconds then closed. Restarted/tried a few time to track the run but app stopped after a few seconds. Clearly lots of testing done before releasing it to production.

Same issue here after updating to this version.  Prior to this update I would charge my watch every 3 days and now it's 1.5 days or less.

Same issue here as well. Battery used to last days. But now wont get me through a full game of golf or day at work. have tried all the suggestions, turned things off, changed settings.

Not a conspiracy theorist at all....but new Samsung watch being released soon????

Looks like its goodbye Samsung hello Garmin.

Mine is exactly the same. I only have blue tooth turned on and nothing else. A full charge lasts exactly 13hrs. So cannot even do a day.

This is the 3rd time samsung have released a battery draining update for the S3
