Galaxy Watch Active unexpected battery drain after Samsung health update

Basically up until today I was getting 2-3 days of battery from my watch, pretty average. There was this Samsung health update that became available last week, but I only installed it today. Ever since then, Samsung health has been eating up the most battery and it has been draining 4-6% an hour, which would mean it would barely last a day. Is anyone else having this problem? And when will Samsung fix this?

I'm also having the same problem ; just realised from your post that it was the health app update that's causing the problem, any ideas as to solve this problem as the watch is now unusable?

it's a bit better now but still not as good as I'd like, I've only really used it for the time at level 3 brightness since 12pm (4pm now) and it dropped 10% in that time, seems a bit too high

I'm not sure how to solve it, I just hope Samsung pushes out an update soon for it

I'm having the same issue - dropped from 100% to 12% within 6 hours yesterday. Terrible! I've reset my watch to see if that makes any difference but the wear app says at 100% I've got about 1 day of use left, which means I can't track sleep and use the watch during the day (unless I want to take it off to charge it for a few hours during the day.... Which I don't)

I've got the same problem and judging by the comments here its linked to the health app update. I had no issue before and nothing else has changed.

I have the same issue as all of you. My Samsung health app is draining my battery 50-60% a day. So frustrating.. hope this is fixed soon...
