Is there any way to stop google play services running in background all the time on my watch? Or does it need to be running and does it use up much battery life?....Rod

A temporary fix has been found to help this bug.

You have to clear your watch Cache Partition. There are very good videos on YouTube on how to do this. Don't worry it's easy to do.

Google play services has been a pain on my phone as well over the couple of updates.

Wipe caching the phone helped a bit for me.

But then I have smart tag , Bluetooth and precise locaction ON so that does take a toll not to mention offline finding and stuff.

I found that clearing the cache partition made zero difference. What is more annoying is that it uses more battery than any other app! Apparently it's a 'feature' ⁉️

For reference steps to clear the watch's cache partition here (can obviously check out videos if you prefer)

You should have the battery fully charged before starting this process on your smartwatch.

1. The Samsung Galaxy Watch must be turned on.

2. Now press and hold the "HOME" and "BACK" buttons simultaneously until you see the Samsung logo with "Rebooting".

3. Now release both buttons immediately and now press the home button (top right) quickly one after the other.


4. You are now in the boot menu of the Samsung Galaxy Watch. In this menu you can scroll with the "HOME" button by pressing it repeatedly.

5. Now navigate to the menu item "RECOVERY" and then press and hold the "HOME" button. This will reboot the Samsung Galaxy Watch into Android recovery mode.

6.You are now in recovery mode, which is similar to that of Samsung Galaxy smartphones.

7. Now press the "BACK" button (lower button on the right) until you have selected the menu item "WIPE CACHE PARTITION". To select it, press the "HOME" button once.

8. Now select "YES" by scrolling down and then select the entry with the home button.

9. The Wipe Cache partiton will now be executed on your Samsung Galaxy Watch. This takes a few seconds. Afterwards, the recovery menu is displayed again. Now select "Reboot Now" to restart the Samsung Galaxy Watch.

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.
