Gear S3 Frontier battery drain on Tizen


I just bought a brand new Frontier this thursday.
It's also on Tizen and I'm not happy with the watch because of the battery issues.

I have disabled everything, but still battery is draining to fast. This night it went from 100% to 51% when I woke up. And I have almost disabled everything.
When will new software update be released?

I'm actually going to return the watch some time this week and get a another brand because of this.



Gear s3, Tizen

My battery drain problem came from a widget. I didn't get any feedback from the watch till yesterday (2 months with high battery drain issues). Yesterday I got a message saying the calendar week number message widget was draining my battery. I stopped the widget and the battery behaviour is now as before having the issues (now is ok).


I guess the issue is that widget battery consumption is not reflected in the summary, only apps are shown. 


You all can try eliminating all widgets to see if the problem comes from there and add one by one every day monitoring the battery consumption (just an idea).
