Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Battery drain after charging

My Gear S3 Frontier has started to drain rapidly after reaching a full charge.

Consulted with other Gear S3 Frontier users to confirm it is likely an update issue and not a hardware issue. - Confirmed (we all started to experience issues at the same time).

Re: Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Battery drain after charging

Agreed, same issue.  Charge to 100% overnight, go to work, sometime an hr or two later I feel the watch getting warm, check it and it's 53%. Very sluggish response then, sometimes unable to use power off feature so often end up performing reset by holding button. Generally improves and behaves normally following reset, albeit at less capacity. 

 

Happens daily.

I started turning my watch off to charge it and it seems to have helped the problem but I think this action is unnecessary. I keep watching for a watch update.

I HAVE EVERY FEATURE TURNED OFF. ALL IT DOES RIGHT NOW IS TELL TIME(FROM 8AM-12P) AND THEN GOES INTO POWER SAVER MODE AND DIES. IVE RESTARTED, UPDATED, REBOOTED AND NOTHING WORKS.

Mine had been dying after workouts. Goes from 70% to nothing quickly. I just turned off workout detection as well to see if that makes a difference. I just reset my watch yesterday.
Amazon has a battery kit if you want to try it.

By reset I mean factory reset. Back it up to your phone first and go into the watch to pair it with a new phone to pair it with your phone.
