If your Gear S3 is shutting down randomly and the battery drain is abnormally fast, then I recommend you to replace the battery. Buy the battery from Amazon and an iFixit Kit. After I replaced mine, the random shut down and battery drain is gone!

Yes. I restarted the device, factory reset it, and even tried my best to completely drain the battery to 0 percent. It still randomly shuts down.

1 week later and once again it shuts down again. I can only get it to turn on if it is on the charging dock. Wasted $325 on a useless watch......

Hello, at this point I would recommend a service repair on the watch. If you wouldn't mind sending me a private message here with your full model code and IMEI/Serial number I would be more than happy to get that set up for you.

I have exactly the same issue. It is frustrating because it will power on the charger, then the battery says at least 50% left. It does this when I start new apps... Samsung Health, Samsung Pay, and now that I think about it...it only happens when I open a Samsung app. Please fix asap!
