This seems to be the solution that works for many. However dis not work on mine. I even disabled the health app and gear app on the phone with no change. Samsung needs to get their act together. Lying about it, mis informing customers, not using this forum as a resource for feedback on customer experience. Just aweful!!!! When you pay $200 to 300 for a smart watch it should work as advertised. When the mfg does a SW update that destroys the performance of the product there is clearly a problem. The really sad thing is it is a nice product when it works. Their CUSTOMER SUPPORT SUCKS!!!

The whole problem is located (resides) on WiFi.
You have to disable WiFi while Bluetooth is ON.
Go to watch Settings > Connections >WiFi >Always Disable.

(adjust Brightness to 3 and Uncheck also Report Diagnostic and Usage Information)

...and you have a whole New Gear-S3
Good Day...

That's true!! Samsung created this issue and they should fix it, but I think no one of us want to experience a bad behavior till this is fix, am I wrong?

We are pawns in the great scheme of things.Sometimes you must help yourself to find solutions to problems and as a good human beings share the solution.If you wait for others to help you are not alway going to win.

We pay around 200-300£ for a gear. Why i should stop using all the options what they give me?apss etc? If i dont want some extras i will buy watch for 100£ or less.

, mine is working OK...after 6 hours and a full recharge is now in 91%. No WiFi but with Bluetooth (which is the PROBLEM) , ON. There should be an update on firmware for sure and soon, but until then, this solution is temporary...When you disable both working like a charm, regarding power. (but once again this is not the solution)PS: Try to remove any downloaded problematic watch faces also...
