Few days ago I've noticed that my watch is randomly tracking swim during the day... Even I'm doing different things. This night I've noticed that's happening during the sleep also. When I've checked the exercise autotracking history I had multiple swim sessions covering whole duration of my sleep - as per attached screenshot.
This is causing 2 major issues:
- exercise tracking is useless... As the results are faked by the fake swim sessions,
- battery is drained quicker.
It started happening just few days ago, before everything was fine. Not sure if any SW upgrade caused it. My Watch detailed are:
- model: SM-R800,
- tinzen very: 18.104.22.168,
- SW ver: R800XXU1DSL1.
Does anyone encounter the same issue? How to solve it?

I "fixed" it by removing swimming from the list of exercises automatically tracked by the watch.
However, three weeks later, my battery life suddenly dropped from 4 days to 12 hours. This wasn't a gradual change, it happened instantly. So I think there was a fault on the watch system board, first shown by the swimming issue. My watch was out of warranty, and Samsung thought that the repair bill would likely be a couple of hundred dollars. In the end, Samsung gave me Australian $200 off a new Galaxy Watch 4, given I'm an existing Watch 1 customer.
So I no longer have my Watch 1, but a Watch 4 instead.
