Me and my 7 friends investigated this issue, some of my friends have S6 some S7, Note 7, S8, Note 8 all have Gear S3 Frontier, simptoms was similar except S6 case, battery drain issue started after system update, in all cases problem was in "notifications" it drained about 32%-36% and "Samsung Health" aditionaly increased up for 4%-9%. What's strange that even if we disabled notifications in gear app, it still drained battery like "blood sucker", besides not only gear s3 battery drained faster but phone battery too, not so significant but if you use your phone more than few months than you know how fast your battery drains and even smaller changes you can detect. We tried many scenarios from factory reset to reflash trought "odin" but nothing helped. Im like Samsung products but that fact that company damages your property isn't good for reputation, besides samsung products are not so cheap to take and throw phone or watch to trash and buy another one! If similar issues will continue in future im may consider to look at other companies. P.S. sorry Samsung but it's your fault! Forgot to mention that with bluetooth conectivity with watch is strange to, yesterday while charging watch and phone, watch beeped few times that they disconnected from phone, but distance between watch and phone was less that 15cm-20cm
