I have recently updated my Gear S3 Frontier to Tizen 126.96.36.199
On Tizen 188.8.131.52, I had a battery life of approx 3 days - after updating to Tizen 184.108.40.206, I have a battery life of max 1,5 day.
1. Do other users experience the same?
2. Does anyone have an idea of what could suddenly drain my battery so quickly?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm on the same firmware as you on my watch.
I still go around 3 days between charges but battery life is a subjective one.
I turn my watch off overnight.
I will have different preferences in my settings to you and different apps and watch face etc.
I'm more than happy to share any of these to you if you wish.

Thanks for your input.
I read some posts on this forum suggesting that the drain could be caused by different watch faces...I deleted some of the recent installed watch faces.
I also disabled "About Gear" -> "Open source-license" -> "Report diagnosis and user info".
I can see that the battery drain is substantial less than before - most likely I will have approx 3 days of battery life again...
I have the same OS version, and since last week i've also experienced some problems with my battery. Form one day to anothe my batterylife chaned from 3 to 1 day without changing or downloading software. My updates go automaticly so know the exact history of changed versions.
Hi, I have exactly The same problem! Everything was ok on tizen 220.127.116.11 and now after the update to Tizen 18.104.22.168 my watch dropped on battery life span from 3/4 days down to barely 1 day! This is ridiculous Samsung, come on fix this please asap
The watch is repared two times by Samsung, first only the battery was replaced, still not much better, so again to Samsung for repaires and this time the mainboard was replaced en some software updates.
Now it is working like before.
