Hi,

I have Samsung S8+ and Gear S3 Frontier.  I have an issue when I have a working connection between these my items:

After a new android update on mine S8+ I started to get a notification which I cannot turn off. And I do not know what it is trying to do. The notification is not a big deal, but I notice that what my phone and watch discharges very fast. Before my watch takes around 3days, now just a 12h...

I uninstalled everything you mentioned and disabled the wear app which they asked me to roll back to the original app on the device.  I then updated the wear app as I could not go any further.  It installed all other required apps.   Did this 2 times and still not working. Super battery drain continues

I've tried the uninstall and reinstall. I even went as far as factory reset on both S9+ and Gear S2 and still the transfer service keeps popping up nthe watch doesn't last more than a couple of hours. Phone and watch get hot. 

It was good for a couple of hours but randomly started getting notifications and a flashing icon in my status bar.

Have you tried uninstalling and trying the device without re-installing on your device?

I performed the specified steps, but the Samsung Accessory Service is still running...when I go to the Samsung App website and the Google Play Store, it shows that the app is "Not compatible with my equipment"...why then is it on my Samsung s8+ ? it also drains my G3 watch battery so much that it only lasts about 14 hours using a minimal watch face with only 3 notifications running: texts, weather, and email...Did Samsung push out an update in June that killed my "old" equipment to try and force me to buy new? I'm running Android 9.0 which ATT pushed out in June...also, Google forced an update on me that included Covid-19 GPS application that I do not use (but cannot remove)...

You can't uninstall the watch wearable app on a Galaxy S7 it only lets you disable or force stop so I conted samsung and they said to try unpairing the watc and the re_pairing it and then resart your phone and that worked for me.

Have you tried clearing the data and cache? Go to Settings > Apps > Show system Apps (click on the 3 vertical dots upper right of screen) >
 Samsung Accessory Service > Storage > Clear Data and Clear Cache. Restart Phone
