Gear S3 Frontier battery drain on Tizen 3.0.0.2

Hi

 

I have recently updated my Gear S3 Frontier to Tizen 3.0.0.2
On Tizen 3.0.0.1, I had a battery life of approx 3 days - after updating to Tizen 3.0.0.2, I have a battery life of max 1,5 day.
1. Do other users experience the same?
2. Does anyone have an idea of what could suddenly drain my battery so quickly?

Hi BandOfBrothers

 

Thanks for your input.

I read some posts on this forum suggesting that the drain could be caused by different watch faces...I deleted some of the recent installed watch faces.

I also disabled "About Gear" -> "Open source-license" -> "Report diagnosis and user info".

I can see that the battery drain is substantial less than before - most likely I will have approx 3 days  of battery life again...

Hi @cephalon

 

I'm on the same firmware as you on my watch. 

 

I still go around 3 days between charges but battery life is a subjective one. 

 

I turn my watch off overnight. 

 

I will have different preferences in my settings to you and different apps and watch face etc. 

 

I'm more than happy to share any of these to you if you wish.

Can you tell me more about it?

 

Thanks.

The watch is repared two times by Samsung, first only the battery was replaced, still not much better, so again to Samsung for repaires and this time the mainboard was replaced en some software updates.
