I have the same issue so contacted support as it is still under warranty.  Support told me that it is a problem with the last update and a fix is on the way.

I can't stand my Samsung watch With in 10 minutes of taking it off the charger it's at 50% battery It's kind of crapy when my Apple watch runs  2 days with no issues

Same here, since last update I am lucky if the battery lasts 12 hours. Had this happen after an update previously and I uninstalled a bunch of apps and everything went back to normal, but this time I have reset/removed everything I don't use and the issue persists. If I disable Bluetooth and WiFi both, so it is in standalone mode, the battery still drains just as fast, thus it has to be something in the update that was applied to the watch!

I wish I got 15 hrs of battery life. I am lucky Kyle if I get 2hrs. If I use it it's dead in 20 min.

Install plugin 2.2.03.18101561 from mirror site and problem is solved. Back to 2-3 days of battery life.

I was a diehard fan of Samsung until I got the Gear S3 - The watch "charges" to 100%, the second I take it off the base, it drops immediately to 97%.  This morning I wore it for 3 hours, and I just got the "Warning, battery low, change to save mode?" alert.

I'll never buy another Samsung product again.

What plugin are you referring to and how do we find it?
