My SM-R760 was fine until the latest software update 3.0.0.2 then it went throug all the above issues of charging. I tried all the above "solutions" without success untill I found my old computer frezer spray i used when reparing computers. I checke the ventilation holes on eather side of the watch were clear and put the watch on the cradle then with regular blasts of frezer spray, to keep the watch from overheating, it will now charge to 100%.

 

This is very tedious.

 

I also found that if I dont do this then the watch is far too hot to actually put on my wrist as it BURNS.

 

Someone must have "tinkered" with the charging algorythem in the last update as it has been fineish for over a year I have had the watch.

 

Regards

Strange.  My charging problem actually started AFTER 3.0.0.2 update 2 days ago.  Before that it was working fine with no battery drain issue.  Such a  to reset the watch.
