Gear Fit 2 pro battery drain (July 2019)

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Bought a Gear Fit 2 Pro few months back. From last week, all of a sudden, the battery's been draining out much faster than expected. End up getting 8 ~ 10 hours battery if lucky, compared to two days from before.

 

Wifi is off

Location is off

Bluetooth is off

Always HR tracking is on

 

Tried a factory reset but no effect.

Battery usage is showing 40% for steps. Tried a force stop on the steps app, upon reading about it in another thread, but no effect.

So I took my gear to the service centre. Thankfully it was still covered under warranty. As per the technician they had to change the battery and the circuit board. I have my gear back now, am using it with below settings and the battery life is now back to normal.

Your heart rate monitor will extremely use your watch battery. when I first got mine I kept it off. I could go days without charging, now that I am using it, I have to half way charge it everynight.
