I got the watch as a gift around 3 days ago and my gosh, I've never had a watch that runs out of battery THIS quick. It chops through like 10% every hour, and its unbearable. All my watches last more than a day or two except this one. Especially because its such a nice gift, and its got so many new features. How do I fix it? I've tried everything.

Is there a fix for this or do I have to live with it? PLEASE do not tell me to turn off any features - i've tried everything I can: Every single connection is off, AOD off.

Try to enable power saving mode as looking at your screenshot it's switched off to see if that makes any difference, if not then you probably have to live with it. It's a known problem with some of the watches.

Tried that already, barely does a thing. Adds like an hour extra. The watch currently gives me 16h on 100%, which is highly inaccurate too as it goes down quicker than that.

My GW4 classic only ever lasted me a 1.5 days give or take a few hours, it's the reason I upgraded to GW5 Pro

Other on here have reported over 2 days, but I never saw that myself

I get about 40 hours per charge on my GW4 Classic 46mm BT version. AoD is turned off. Stress measurement is on manual and Heart rate is set to measure every 10 mins. Wifi and location are always on (the watch internally turns them on/off as required, I think) and no power saving. Notifications are turned on and I wear the watch all the time.

On smaller sized watches, the battery is smaller. The battery duration will go down accordingly.

Do you use Google Assistant and is Het Google turned on?

Hey @noodlesyrup! Do you by any chance have the LTE version of the Watch4? If so, being in a low-signal area can drain the battery as it is constantly searching for a connection. May be worth checking. 🙂

Battery starts draining if I use Spotify or Samsung Health (when heart rate sensor and GPS get into action) for a longer duration.
