try the following:
I had the same issue and found the solution on another forum that has worked like a charm, Charged to 100% yesterday 9am 10/18 and at 2:10 pm est today I still have 53% left and that is with location turned on and heavy interaction thru the day.
1) go to settings on watch and go to "about gear" Scroll down to "report diagnostic ancd usage information and uncheck it.
2) next, and I thought this was a funny solution, but after the above put your watch on the charger and while it is charging, press and hold power until it reboots and let it finish charging.
3) welcome to 3 days of battery life again.
Followed above yesterday ..after 10 hours over night now on 89 % . Are you some kind of Samsung Shaman ?.
Update... 1 day and 14 hours still on 63% ... just turned off "Report Diagnostic and usage info " and the reboot on the charger. looking good.
Thanks. I've found something else that works for me last night at
But the way I see it, if passive usage data collection is causing this issue then it can get turned off anyway! So I followed your instructions.
Thanks to all who suggest turning off usage data collection and rebooting, it sounds like that's working as well.
Hello I am experiencing serious issues with the battery life of my Gear S3 classic I already have installed all software updates to the versions shown below: Model SM-R770 Tizen 220.127.116.11 R770XXU2CRH1 KNOX 2.2.0 Fully charged it lasts only 4 hours until the watch shuts down. Then when I put it in the cradle to charge it again, it shows that the battery is still at 60-70%. From then, A full charge will take less than half hour until the green light on the cradle indicates that the charge is complete, even tough the battery is “supposedly” totally empty. Then the cycle repeats: battery will last only 4 hours , take it to the charge cradle, Watch shows the battery at 60%; charge in the cradle for 30 min or less…. All these means, that I have to charge my Gear twice a day. I have seen in various forums, that these issue is very common and so far no fix for it.
Hi @CAZE, please search for the TAG "Solution"... you need to disable in the smartwatch the report and use. This fixed it
It's in the sheet 15 of this thread
