Galaxy Watch 46mm Battery Drain after Update

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?

I did the update on my watch yesterday. Charged it up yesterday afternoon following the update. Showing just now 74%. Working OK. I did check all the settings on the watch and in the Wear App to ensure nothing had been altered.

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?!!??!

Yes charged up to 100%. I have a sim card in the watch connected when needed to 4G, then when at home to the WiFi. I normally charge mine using it this way every 2½ to 3 days. One of the updates in the download was the way Notification function works and also now linking the watch to Smart Things App.

Unfortunately that's something I don't know anything about. Never had to do this with any of my Samsung phones etc over the last 10 years.
Just a thought have you tried switching of the watch then restarting it. There was also a number of Apps for the watch to update in the Galaxy Store.

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.
