With the release of Tizen 184.108.40.206 my Galaxy 46mm watch uses ~1% of battery per hour. Most importantly, the battery power management is consistent. I don't see a large battery drain with app use compared to before the update was introduced.

Before the 220.127.116.11 update I was getting about three days of battery life from my watch. Since the OS update I get less than a day. I have almost everything turned off. It appears that Samsung health is using most of my battery. I am only using steps, heart rate monitor, and sleep monitor. I like this watch but this is battery life is terrible.

the watch battery is not the issue the galaxy wearable app is causing this issue.. I went and upgraded from the Gear s3 frontier thinking that the battery went bad and the watch was barely getting me through the day. went and bought the galaxy watch 46mm and the same thing happened barely a day and half .. nearly took the watch back. but decided to install the app on my iphone and bang 5 days of use.
Samsung please stop distroying your products with crapy apps like the galaxy wearable app, because i still want to use my watch with my S9+. but for now I'll have to stick with the iphone for the watch

Struggling to get two days out of my watch so very disappointing considering all the hype regarding great battery life. There's no point in switching everything off to save battery life as this makes the watch useless. May as well keep it switched off. I think my next step is to go back to Samsung to get it looked at. I was originally told the battery would last a week by a Samsung representative, so what's happened? Other than that nice watch.

I purchased the LTE version of this watch.
A week later I returned the watch as I was barely getting 1.5 days out of the unit.
The Apple watch doesn't do well either as far as battery life but Samsung advertised at least 3-4 days on the standard watch AFAIK.

I bought my galaxy watch 46 BT in September
Battery life was great easy 4-5 days of light usage always connected to my I phone via Bluetooth I was very happy with it
Now I updated software to
newest (R800OXA1BRJ4) one since the update I get max 1.5 day of battery life (shocking!!!!) it’s only two months old!!!!
I even turned most options off
I reset watch many times restore twice to factory settings and no improvement at all
I charge my watch to 100% before sleeping around midnight
watch drains the battery just over the night sleep of 5h more than 40% and suddenly died in the evening with most things turned off
It is just unbelievable
what is wrong with Samsung?
can it be solved?
any suggestions or ideas what happen to the watch
It will be possible to request refund or exchange?
