Re: Gear Fit 2 battery drain

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I have the same battery drain problem since the update. I already shut down many of the processes. The problem is getting worse each day since the update. THERE IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM WITH THE LAST UPDATE!

My battery completely drained in about 2 hours this morning.  Always got 2 to 3 days before this weekend.  What happened?

Same problems with fast battery drain.  I saw an update to the weather app come through.  I checked settings for it and don't see anything odd, but I will turn off the 6 hour automatic update and see what happens.

Interesting - I just went into the gear app and see there's another weather update.  Maybe this really was the culprit, as wifi and location services were off (as they were for others on this thread).  Will finish charging and then download app.

My GF2 used to give about 2 days earlier...but last two times, after reaching 30% battery, it drained in about 2 hours...dead flat!! Now, the battery does not seem to last 6 hours!! I have nothing turned on except Bluetooth (but I turn off the BT on my Mobile phone except when I want to synch...about 2 times a day)...what gives...I see there is no solution on any of the pages and yet this says resolved?

 

I went for Samsung after being an Apple product user for many years (S6 with VR got me to Samsung....but even that is now a problem...the battery on the S6 swelled up and tore the back of the phone open on one side!!). 

 

I may have made a mistake moving to Samsung seeing that they dont seem to have the basics done right :-(

This is due - in my case - to the new update pushed to my watch through my phone (from Samsung) Monday. Mine is usually good for 2 or more days and now it won't go more than 4 hours.

Have the same issue after the update, lucky to get 5-6 hours off of one charge.  HORRIBLE.

Same issue here. Reset the watch, uninstalled all apps that can be uninstalled, turned almost all options off, and still no luck. I charged my watch before going to bed, and in about 7 hours it had 30% left.

OK - I have now got the battery drain under control. I am using "Black Fit" by Lucas Philipp for my watch face now (an old favorite) and turned OFF "Wake Up Gesture". Then I let the battery completly drain and charged it up to 100%. Yesterday I only used 20% of the battery (up at 5:00 AM - bed by 10:00 PM). Hope the trend continues.

This has not been solved. Samsung obviously has not read this forum. My battery is draining in a day after the update. It used to last 3 days with good use. I am using only stock watch face and apps that were already on there.

 

Samsung open this forum back up. Switching the watch face to a private face and turning off wake is not a fix.
