Recently purchased my Galaxy Watch 46mm as new, began setting up and also applied the latest software update. The battery life is not anywhere near what has been claimed publicly. I have had the watch one week, and am paying close attention to what I'm using app-wise.
Points to note;
With these settings I am lucky to get 48hrs. It's more often I will get 36.
Another key point, last night I left it on Goodnight mode, sat on my bedside table. It used 25% battery overnight.
Yes have rebooted the watch, and the phone.
Any ideas or help is appreciated, thanks in advance
Solved! Go to Solution.
More to report.
I have turned off Bluetooth altogether. I set the watch to airplane mode whilst not wearing it overnight. I am close to the end of day two and the battery level is at a healthy 70%. I'm happy to learn the source of the drain. Not happy that it impacts heavily on why I purchased, and how I wanted to use this watch.
Bluetooth is the power-drain.
The watch has now consistently remained usable for minimum 3 days.
Samsung can you please update the Bluetooth functionality? You publicly claim battery life of 3 to 4 days but this is simply not possible with your current Bluetooth power requirement. I was happy to pay extra for your product because of their use-claims. Now, I feel like I've wasted hundreds of pointless extra dollars. Far from happy
Snap ! I have a new one. I'm getting 3days 12 hrs indicated after a full charge. I'm gradually turning lots of the apps off ie workout detection etc. But not getting anywhere near the 7 days advertised. If connected to the phone is a drain..whats the point of a wearable? Any ideas..?
