I went in the weather app settings on my phone. I turned off location and set update interval to 12 hours. Hope this helps.

Hey all, 

 

I was having this same problem, and tried all the tricks including turning off WiFi, turning on Do Not Disturb etc. but nothing seemed to work. A couple of days ago I was searching through the settings and discovered that my display brightness was set on 7, so I backed it off to 3.. Now I seem to have limitless battery life..

Before almost returning this piece of technology, I gave it a second chance and installed R360XXU1APE4.

Screen brightness 3
Not using GPS or WiFi
Using only bt to sync with Samsung health
Not updated stock apps or firmware
AVS simple digital 24h BW screen

After 36hrs still displays 74% battery.

 

Also turn off automatic updates on gear app.

Hope this helps

Again, after 51hrs, still 61% so I'm thinking, must be firmware bug

Definitely a fix.

Today morning, just updated to the latest firmware available and battery drain started again.

 

Needless to say, I reinstalled old firmware again.

This time I have updated all apps but not firmware. 

BT always on

Automatic HR measure

No GPS or WiFi

Screen to 3

 Still 90% after 10hrs and lot of notifications later.

 

Hope this helps.

Having same issue and it looks like your fix works.  I have one question though, how do you roll back the firmware?
