Gear S3

Anyone else paired your phone with a Gear S3 watch?

Along with massive battery drain on my phone , I also have massive battery drain on my paired watch.

15% per hour.

 

I tried a factory reset of the watch, no good.

I have now paired the watch to my old Galaxy S8. 

Battery is now back to normal

Seems like the partition cache wipe has cleared up my battery problems.

Very weird how the gear S3 was draining battery, but seems fixed now.

I've paired the watch back to the S10e and all is ok.

Hi @deeyup 

 

That sounds really serious.

Please make sure to share an error report with us! 

Cheers! :fisted-hand:

Have the same issue. Nothing seems to work. This seems to be another example of "built in obselences". Surprised that there isn't a class action suit against Samsung.

Same problem here.. I took the watch to the nearest authorized service.. they changed the battery and the problem still remains, but they don't admit that the watch is not working properly. They said to me "the watch is working as it should work". One advice... never buy Samsung products again. It's the last time for me. Note 5, Gear S3, Wireless charger, Power bank all gone for sale. The worst after sales support i've ever had!
