Has anyone else experianced sudden drop in batery life with their Gear S3 since the January 2020 update.
My watch used to last a day and a half easy with always on display on but these days it won't go a full day with the battery optimised.
Is it the update that has caused these issues or has the battery just dies?
I've had the watch 2 years or so and I have never had these issues before.

Yes, I've noticed the same thing the past week. Turning off the "screen always on" option helped a little, but not much. I'm using the Frontier default watch face. I've turned off all notifications. I cleared all the cache, optimized battery, and cleaned up the RAM.
This happened a few months ago, but "magically" went away when I switched to the default watch face. I also replaced my own battery at one point, which seemed to correct the issue for 2 days, then went right back to draining fast. Samsung doesn't seem to have any answers; neither do any of the other users.
I'm using a Pixel 3XL. What phone are you using?
Temporarily, for a couple of months. At least, that's the only real thing I did. Now I'm in battery save mode and it's still drained almost 20% in under 4 hours.
Guys I think I've cracked it.
I let my watch battery drain and left it dead for a day.
When I next charged it the battery went back to normal.
Letting it properly die must have done something
Updated and now my watch doesn't last a day with everything turned off. This is horrible and the answer is repairs?? No this is a software problem and maybe this was done on purpose to force upgrades?! Bout ready to throw this watch in the trash.
I TRIED A RESET, ONLY RUNNING ON DEFAULT WATCH FACE AND LET BATTERY DIE AND RECHARGED.
MY BATTERY LIFE IS GOOD FOR ONLY 4 HOURS THEN IT DIES.
WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY.
i HAVE THIER TV'S, PHONE , TABLET AND WATCH. THINKING OF GOING BACK TO APPLE AS MY WIFE HAS NO ISSUES WITH HER SMART 5 WATCH AND i PHONE COMBO.
