Re: Gear s3 extreme battery drain! September 2018

Sorry, just a quick follow-up.  My Gear S3 is currently running Software version R760XXU2CRK2 and the version of Samsung Health I'm using is 4.1.3909.  When I bring that up, it has an active 'Update' button, but I refuse to let it at this point.  I'm getting multiple days on my Gear S3 without an issue at this point.

I was also told my battery had to be replaced.  $90 for that, everything worked fine until next update, now watch is dead after 4-6 hours

Re: Gear s3 extreme battery drain! September 2018

This watch is complete trash. This experience of the battery draining before I even eat breakfast (4 hours after putting on wrist) ridiculous. Samsung does not give a freak and I'll go as far as to say their updates are malware forcing us to go out and get the new gear watch similar to what iPhone does...

Re: Gear s3 extreme battery drain! September 2018

Having the same issue. For me, this seems to be related to the iOS Galaxy Watch app update. Since the update I'm lucky to get 6 hours of use from the watch (always on display). When I pair the watch to my Android phone I'll get closer to 20 hours - not ideal but at least usable. Linking it back to my iPhone, reinstalling all software still results in no more than 6 hours use. Really bad product Samsung!

Re: Gear s3 extreme battery drain! September 2018

I have the same issue.  Battery drain is a real issue for me right now.  is this a ploy by Samsung to get users of the S3 Gear to upgrade to the Samsung Watch?   I tell you this, if this isnt fixed then I'm done with the Smarthwatch.

This problem just started to affect my S3 classic. Can't even get a full day of battery since the most recent update.

Re: Gear s3 extreme battery drain! September 2018

I am experiencing the same issues with regards to my S3 Frontier.  It had a full charge last night when I put it on prior to going to bed and when I woke up the battery was below 50%.  This is ridiculous I used to get 2 - 2.5 days of wear time on a charge and now I can't make it through 12 hours without the watch yelling at me that it needs a charge.  What good is a smartwatch if you can't wear it and it has to stay on the charger the whole time.

Re: Gear s3 extreme battery drain! September 2018

I have the same problem. I am using the Gear S3 Frontier with current firmware with my iPhoneX with IOS12 and current Galaxy Watch app. The battery lasts with "Always on Display" only 5h.  Without "Always on" max. 12h. Do I now have to strap on the charging pad and battery? Samsung this is not your serious! So you can throw the watch directly into the trash.

Re: Gear s3 extreme battery drain! September 2018

Same here! Extreme battery drain! In the morning 100%, after 4 hours 4%!!! energy - no always on screen enabled. After Tizen 3.0 and laters updates, u - Samsung - made this watch a piece of junk!

Yes, battery uses about 15-20% per hour.
