Gear sport Battery draining at night

First Poster

Samsung you are a joke. Up until 2 days my S3 Frontier battery lasted 3 to 4 days, now it doesn't even last half a day following an update. Clearly this is a major issue but depsite trying several different support options I have no firm answer from you, except my device might be faulty!!!

 

Look at all the comments, are all these peoples devices suddenly faulty, no of couse not.

 

Sort it out, NOW.

I noticed this happened after I installed an update for my watch through my phone.
Anyone try resetting / reverting the watch to confirm it is software?

Well, lot of us (including me) had factory reset on watch side which didn't work out so far. I'm trying to do a software reinstall on the phone today... But need to sleep to have results....

I'm also having this issue, go to bed with about 85%+ charge and when I woke up it was about 6% left. It's annoying and it does seem like a software issue.

I went to bed with 83%  when i woke up was at 40% and 3 hours later is at 16% seems like samsung is taking apple 

path as they release the galaxy watch now they f@#k our watches to force us go get a new one.

The other fact that this fault appeared on lot of people's device basically at the same time (2-5 days ago, including watches of 5 day to 1 year of ages) makes me hardly believe it is a software issue. Unless Samsung deployed a "time bomb" part into these watches which were "exploded" 3 days ago...

I don't think it's malicious. I'm a software developer -- time is tough, has a lot of subtleties, and is a source of tons and tons of bugs. The fact it happened at the same time to a lot of people (me included) is a clear indicative of something gone awry with the code, and also something that should give us solace, as it's fixable.

For the last two days it has drained at night. Mine is now also draining battery in power saving from 39% to 18% in 1.5 hours. This is not good. Mine says s health 49% messages 27%. I will try the reset but... I only have the original charger and all apps are up to date.
