I have that problem as well for a couple of days now. I didn't update anything or changed settings or whatsoever, but the gear does not last a workday anymore at all. I charged it overnight and am using it now for less than 7 hours and it complains that the battery is almost empty. WiFi is disabled all the time anyways because I do not have a reason to use it, I disabled GPS as well.
I kind of have the feeling that the battery life has become worse sind the weather app was added, which I cannot uninstall as well to check this.

On July 14th, 2017 Rusty made the comment that if you let the battery completely die and then fully recharge it, it fixes the problem. I am going to try that tonight. Good luck, because I agree, this ridiculous. Four hours at work now and already dead

Dear Samsung Support,
Is anyone reading reading this post/issue and someone is working to solve this battery drain problem?
This forum started in January and it is now middle of September and absolutely NO feedback/update from Samsung?
What kind of customer support/service organization are you running? Who is in charge/responsible?
Once again, Samsung's moderator's initial response was a total disappointment (a Joke at best).
SAMSUNG, we simply wants an answer/fix - should NOT take 9 month to figure this out for the Mighty Samsung!

I have found that the watch seems to reach some sort of critical memory issue after more than 2 weeks use where the battery starts to drain and watch gets less responsive. What I do is first fully charge it, then do a full reset and I find this always fixes it for another few weeks until the memory clogs up again. Once the battery starts to drain it almost fully discharges after 1 day to like 15%. But after reset it will again behave discharging to about 70% after 1 day.

I can barely make it through the night. I charge before going to bed and when I wake up I'm at 10%. I then need to charge twice during the day.
The thing spends more time on the charger than it does on my wrist.
I went from a fitbit that lasted a week to this. Pretty disapointing.
