Hi, I've the same problem as all in this topic. Before Tizen 3.0 I had usually 3 full day of battery life with an avarage of 20/25 % of remaining charge. Now at the third day no more than 10/15%. Sometimes below 10%
And I've to add another bug on the list. Every night since I have my S3, I use to shutdown the Smartwatch.
Now Shuting down as first attempt the system restart automatically without any reason. To shutdown I've to repeat the action.
I think those are very frustrating bugs.

Just got an email from Samsung ... asking if the posts "solved my problem" That shows that no one at Samsung reads these posts. It is a futile attempt to solve problems unless users have answers. As usual, Samsung NEVER has an answer with a viable solution. What a pitty!

Glad you show your screen because Watch Faces eats 54% of the power. Unless you have display ON all the time, that is a major programming error in Tizen 3.0. I have a similar situation where Watch faces consumes most of the power and I only use the display several times a day and receive less than a dozen messages on screen, a day. I used to have at least 4 days of power and now I have about 2. As I said before I am up 1.8-1.9 times in power use under identical circumstance. That is a fact!

Took mine off the charger at 7:30 this morning, it turned itself off at 12:45 as if the battery was dead. I immediately turned it back on. Battery showed 3%. As I'm writing this, it is 2:00 and the watch still shows 3% and hasn't turned itself off again yet.
Something seems wonky with battery % calculation.
