I replaced my battery on 6 Jan 2018. Before the battery replacement I was losing 25% per hour. After replacement, it was depleting 6% per hour. As of yesterday. it was depleting 1% per minute. So after a full charge the watch would be dead in 100mins. Hopeless. I still have 15 days warranty left on my replacement battery, so I'll take the watch back. This watch and battery are a disaster.
That could be caused by a setting that turns things off when you are not wearing the watch. I came across that setting the other day.
I too have also ran into the sudden less than 24 hour battery life. However, this was not after an update and it only lasted one battery cycle. I let the watch die until it shut off, set it on the charger to fully charge, cleared the cache on the gear app on my phone. My battery is now estimated at 60+ hours with just about everything on except AOD (every 10 min heart rate, wake gesture, weather update every 3 hours, health active monitoring, workout detection, sound and vibrate on notifications, 60% brightness etc.....) . It seems like there is a bug in either health or weather but it seems like killing the process off can help.
Bugs happen and not all are solved with the same solution. If none of the solutions below work, then it may be possible that you have a hardware issue thats causing the problem and replacement may be the solution.
1. Reboot (Let the watch die until it shuts off and do a full charge before turning it back on)
2. Reboot and clear cache on Samsung Gear app
3. Factory reset the watch
4. Factory Reset the watch and reinstall the Gear app
Hope this helps some of you out there.
I had the same issue. I contacted Samsung, and they asked me to send my watch in. It was still under warranty. It took about a week, and they ran a bunch of tests on it. On the work slip, it said tgey replaced the "incell battery pack". Hope this helps.
Got latest update to Tizen 3.0 Suddenly battery drains a lot faster compared to previous firmware based on Tizen 126.96.36.199. Made sure all settings are identical and Tizen 3.0 is supposed to be a lot more battery efficient. Anyone experiencing similar problems?
@userfDMTm43PD8I will be sending mine in for repair Monday, apparently it will take 7 days etc. Which is a shame, but I was wondering since your battery being replaced how's it been, rough battery stats/hours?
I appreciate your response, also did you send it with a strap as someone one here said there's did not get returned!
Watch out sending in for repair.
Had my watch sent in for repair and they told me no parts and was going to send me refund. Was only going to send price for watch without tax. They told it will take 7 to 14 days for refund but never came. Its been 6 week, now. Called customer service many times and they have no idea what is status. Called again recently and now they are saying compensation systme is down. What a bull**bleep**! Called repair center direct now they have parts and asked to have it repair send the watch back. Have to wait another week. What a crap!
