Thank you Hmmmm! A sensible, intelligent answer and one that makes total sense. WiFi and location must get turned on with that last update. I have now turned them off and am sure that'll make a difference. I hope so anyway. 

 

Why add in features that are going to suck the life out of the device Samsung? Bit odd. 


Glad I read this.  Location was not on but WiFi did get turned on.  I was having to use Power Saving Mode just to get thru the weekend without charging.

Go to settings, connections, scroll down to the bottom, you should see the 'location' option, go into it and click on 'GPS' so there is no blue dot. Hope this helps!

This is marked as a solution.  It is not a solution!  It has been months since the update that ruined battery life!  Samsung, please fix the bug for a REAL solution!

Totally agreed that the issues posted in thread 63937 are not solved. Like to add my piece. What kind of fitness wear tech prone to switching battery saving mode after exercising for less than one hour at bare minimum setting (screen brightness - 2 even though you can hardly see anything on the screen and on bluetooth connection only). I did not even switch on gps knowing it will drain the battery even faster despite it is one of the kill arse function I bought this watch for.  Totally disappointed that its taking so long for a solution (its been more than 8 months) and Samsung is hanging some of your loyal customers like myself dry. We DO NOT ACCEPT the SO CALLED SOLUTION until we see improvement.

What a load of bologny I also have the WiFi and location turned off and turn everything else off at night but still can't get 24 hours out of the watch!

Open your wear app, link app and Samsung health app and clear the caches of each. That solves the battery drain. You have to do it about once a week though

Is that seriously your professional response??? If that's true Samsung seriously needs to up its game. However I feel quite confident you have made that up expecting me to be some kind of techno moron who'd buy it. I don't!!!

My battery is draining in about 4 hours, I'm not using it for anything except the steps and HR and clock.  How do I get it back to where it was going days on a charge before the update?

Just did the latest update and now have no battery life. Have turned Gps off, Dimmed screen all the way, WIFI off, Bluetooth off and notifier off. Still dying fast. Any help would be great. Loved my Gear Fit2 but now completely useless.
