Re: Gear Fit 2 battery drain

And now it's 100% dead right before I go to bed which is pretty useless since I bought it to track my sleep cycles. *slow clap* Never had this problem before until the latest update. Not happy.

This is unacceptable Samsung. My wife purchased a new watch for my birthday three months ago because I was complaining of the battery drain. Now my new watch is even worse. I got about 12 hours of battery life last night in power saving mode from 100% to 0%.

Re: Gear Fit 2 battery drain

I was having the same issue and found a solution. Hope it helps for everyone else...

1) Open the Gear Fit App (now called Galaxy Wearable).

2) Under "About Gear" click on the battery circle.

3) This will bring you to a page that breaks down the battery usage (takes awhile to load).

4) My battery usage was at 37% for "Steps". If this is the case for you, click on the steps icon. This should bring you to the version number and some options of uninstall or force stop.

5) Click on force stop.

My Gear Fit Pro 2 continued counting steps but the battery drain has stopped. Haven't had to charge it in a couple of days. Hope this works for others!!!
