After updating my Galaxy Watch 46mm two days ago my battery is draining rapidly. Less than 8 hours to go flat.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Before the update I was on a great 4 to 5 days before needing a charge.

Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.

Hi guys - how do your watches last 5 days????

 

I'm lucky to get a full day out of mine.  and how do you turn auto updates OFF?

 

I have the 42m, does that make a difference?

 

thanks

I am facing the same problems now. 2 days ago it started using so much battery - especially over night. I did a full charge, then from 17:00 to 23:00 it was about 86%. The next morning I woke up with 44%. Normally it needs 25% for a whole day. Does anyone else facing these problems currently? I don't know what to do.

Contact Samsung Support on Facebook.  They've been great. Sent a prepaid UPS label to send watch in for free

I am having the same problem.  By battery life was fine until the most recent update, now it will run out in less than 6 hours.  It is useless now.
