My battery on gw42mm is ridiculous at the moment and getting worse. This has been going on for the past 4-5wks now if not longer. Settings are pretty much standard and have been since I've had it, it use to last me 2.5days now im lucky if I get 24hrs out of it and today it lasted just over 13hrs!!! I've reset it 4 or 5 times in the last few wks /mths I've cleared creche I've uninstalled the werable app an reinstalled again but its just getting worse. I have noticed that when an update happens it changes all my setting in the wearable app. All wake ups are off apart from when I press the side button. Hr at every 10mins. Awo off. I've even turned some of my notifications off! Including Bixby and daily updates, I even had to delet the contacts widget the other day as it used upto 65% of battery power, some days I have to turn on power save half way throught the day. Apart from now getting in touch with samsung not sure what else I can do! I only had it 6-7mths and never had this kind of problem before also i dont swim with it so no water damage! It all started with recent updates over the last couple of months on shealth, wearable and watch apps. Anyone else had or having this problem and found a solution please let me know. Thanks

The recent S8 update is totally destroying the battery on my galaxy watch! Before the update I was getting 48hrs + now I'm lucky if I get 12hrs use out of the watch. So not happy with it, it changed all the settings in the S-health app. It doesn't count floors any more and I'm getting notifications for every health condition going apart from the ones I set up! The health app is now a disaster all the setting in the wearable app changed! It connects an unconnects to bth whenever it wants i have to reconnect through the app! at I've only had the watch less than a month and it was working perfectly fine before the update had no problems with it what so ever!
I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times, reset the watch and still nothing it's still draining the watch battery.
What on earth am I missing? Apart from sending the ***** thing back for a refund cause at the moment it is absolutely useless as i can't even trust it to track anything correctly.
By the way mine is the LTE version on EE and today it wouldn't even send a message from the watch although it said it been sent!
😡 bad update and needs fixing!!!! Soon
