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.
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.
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 😔
I have the same problem.. even i reset my gear but still lots of battery drain..i always charge my gear early morning and it always used have 75-78 precent battery. but now a days im getting 56-65 precent battery left early morning...
Yep I to updated my gears s3 to the latest version 3 and now i can't even get through the day without haveing to charge the thing, It's been an hour and a half this morining and it's downto 80% already, where as it would go for 2 days before easy, a total stuff up from samsung on this one..
