Re: Gear S3 Frontier Tizen 3.0 Battery Drain

I have found that if I charge it overnight, the watch charges to full as normal, but then stops taking charge and proceeds to drain through the night. I put mine on charge on Friday night at 8pm and it was at 50%. at 0700 on sat morning it was at 75%, but I know it charged to full as it lit up at around 10pm and I checked it and found it at 99%.

 

This has happened every night since the update on Wednesday night. Had to do a factory reset this morning in the hope of fixing it, but found that back-up and Restore are pretty useless as apps I delted previously have returned, and apps I had as shortcuts are no longer there.

Re: Gear S3 Frontier Tizen 3.0 Battery Drain

battery is draining like hell on my frontier and the update politic in general. i don't get it. it's every time the same s**t with samsung devices: 1st - you wait months or even a year for an update or you never get one; 2nd the updates never work out of the box, u have always have to delete something, to reset or to reinstall or to perform a update dance at full moon for the spaghetti monster. man i'am so bored of this behaviour, i have note phone, a tv, a blue-ray player. the only update ever worked without problems was on my wash-machine, because i had never done one, this was definitely my last samsung device.

Re: Gear S3 Frontier Tizen 3.0 Battery Drain

After two days my battery drain normalized, almost as it was before update. I am a havy user and have AOD oaways turned on, and as before the update, I can get a full day of usage, with an hour of training and some 20k steps.

Re: Gear S3 Frontier Tizen 3.0 Battery Drain

Mine drains just as fast. Bought mine brand new when first released and could go 3 days with no charge. Now after update and same settings my watch is completely dead within 8hrs. 

 

I've tried factory reset, I've tried reboot. NOTHING has helped this issue. The watch is now worthless after spending all that money on the latest and greatest new smart watch 😔

Re: Gear S3 Frontier Tizen 3.0 Battery Drain

I did a full reset after the update, and it hasn't helped at all. Watch is now draining 8% per hour with AOD off.

-Shame on you Samsung..

Fix plz, FAST

Gear S3 Frontier Tizen 3.0 Battery Drain

unfortunately same here. after update I Immediately noticed huge drain in battery life. even after 2 factory resets, and not restoring from a backup. changed all settings and still same. takes longer to charge now. when looking at battery usage, it's s-health app doing the damage. (or it's an internal issue due to update) I can barely make it through the day now, and that's with everything disabled on the s-health app. I hope Samsung fixes this asap. I love the new layout, and "features" but would rather roll back to precious version to get battery life back.

Re: Gear S3 Frontier Tizen 3.0 Battery Drain

Among many other tries, I did charge to 100% with Gear OFF and after all apps were updated. Now may battery drains 1.9 times faster than it did in Tizen 2.4.2.4. I will repeat again and again and again that under identical circumstances the battery drain is almost twice as bad in Tizen 3 vs Tizen 2.
