Excessive Battery Drain - Gear S3 Frontier

Highlighted

Apprentice

When I first got my Gear it burned through batteries so quickly. Then there was an (Tizen?) update released last Fall I think it was which made it a lot better - I could make it through a full day without charging. Then there was an update just the other day, and now I can barely make it through half a day. Something is sucking the juice of out of my battery. Please hotfix it Samsung ASAP! It's not a wearable anymore, it's more like a chargeable.

Tizen 3.0.0.1

Hi @EJ7

 

My s3 frontier appears to be ok. 

 

What update/ firmware version is it on ?

 

Do any stats in the watch give any idea whats using most battery. 

 

If your concerned and a reset does not help then a Samsung Experience Store or Samsung Service Centre location can run a diagnostic on the device.

 

 

My advice comes from being a UK Samsung Phone User.
