Gear S3 Frontier battery drain on Tizen 3.0.0.2

New Member

This issue is happening for me too, I can see there's a large gap since this initially occured, some months even. C'mon Samsung help us out!

Looks like i just joined the club.

Can't check the versions at present ... the battery has run out.

Couldn't have said it better myself.  I did a hard reset about a month ago and it solved the problem; the battery started draining like a sieve this week, did a hard reset and it hasn't done anything to resolve the issue, just like everyone else has posted.  I'm really beginning to doubt that anyone at Samsung even reads these posts and realizes how frustrated their customers are.

The main reason of this issue is the app and 3rd party watch faces. Please just reset your watch and make sure fully carged. Now use normally without any third party application. I hope your problem will be solved.

 

Thanks

No, it isn't - I don't use any third party apps and still have the default watch face

SOLUTION: turn off "dynamic workout" detection in the watch settings. It worked for me.

This is a new issue not related to watch faces.  My battery in the last couple of days has gone from 100% to 0 in around 12 hours or less. No new watch faces or updates in that time though I have noticed higher data usage on the Samsung accessory service app, 160mb in a 6 hour period in the background.Screenshot_20181017-144812.jpg

I'm not finding that in settings, how do you turn it off?
