Could someone please advise on what is going on.
I used to get up to 4/5 days usage out of my watch. I had an update yesterday, after the update the watch wouldnt charge.
I turned it off and back on again and it would then charge, problem over I thought. Now the battery drain is extreme.
I woke up this morning and it was at 15%. Charged it up to over 60%, went out for a walk and now down to 35%.
Back on charge. This is ridiculous.
How can I reverse the update and see what the battery performance is like then?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I backed up my watch via the app then uninstalled the connectivity app and the gear app
Reset the watch
connected the phone back to the watch (took a while as I didnt delete the connectivity app at first - this seemed the key part)
Now the battery drain is back to normal
Suggest those struggling try this.
Not sure why Samsung arent doing anything about this 😞
This is where mine was stuck for ages
Make sure you uninstall all the gear apps and addons and reinstall
I do remember having to do this ages ago now, its a pain in the a55.
If you just reinstall the gear wearable app and try to connect it will ask you for the companion app or connect addon.
Did you charge up to 100%?
Not sure why it should change any settings, but not sure what settings would cause battery drain like what I have experienced?!!??!
Well not working for me.
Just charged to 100%, now down to 87% and done nothing
Need to wind it back a firmware, not sure how to?!?!?!
Yeah, had to do that after the first update as it wouldnt charge. The restart sorted that out.
down to 76% now after doing nothing special with it. Something is defo wrong here.
Thanks for the help though
IS your HR monitor set to continuous or every 10 mins?
Just noticed it was set to continuous, not sure what it was before this?!?!?!
My Galaxy watch is the same, wouldn't charge so tried a different charger. Managed to get it up to 73% 50mins later it is on 15%. I did the update this morning
