Hi

 

I have recently updated my Gear S3 Frontier to Tizen 3.0.0.2
On Tizen 3.0.0.1, I had a battery life of approx 3 days - after updating to Tizen 3.0.0.2, 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?

Not sure but i read on one of the screen that they consider some every 10 feet as 1 floor climb. Maybe that could have triggered floor count post you disabled alti-barometer

initially from the wrongly counted floors I suspected the error in the altimeter-barometer app, I uninstalled it, and still climb up the floors without taking a step....

That's what I wrote... Samsung needs to review the full Firmware... this is a mess

I charged the watch up to 100% about 4pm, went to bed about 11pm Gear was on 91%, woke up at 6am  with low battery warrning approx 4% apps using most power showing as health app 14%  and notifications 21% . In to work by 7am charged again to 100% .Its now 2.30 pm so now been on for nearly 5 hours and battery level 90%.

Only things diferent between day and night is do not disturb schedule comes on at 11pm and off at 5.30 and I was asleep.

 

Looks like we need to keep moving in our sleep to charge the battery 🙂

 

Does this mirror anyone else ?

I had a battery life of almost 3 days prior to the update - now I am lucky if I get 6 hours without the watch dying. I am using the stock watch face, no extra apps, and barely use the watch except for checking text messages. I got the watch less than a year ago and have had issues with both the updates samsung pushed. I contacted support ..... still waiting for a response

Hi...

 

Exactly this happened to me today, when i went to sleep it had 90% of battery... Suddenly in the morning when i was getting ready to work *beep beep beep* low battery chime... It have reached 15% just in one night...

I checked out the battery consumption, 13% notifications - 13% samsung health and everything else was bellow 2%

I just googled up this issue thinking it was just a mere coincidence but now I see its not...

 

Just to let you know guys, i have less than 3 months with this new S3 Frontier and this is a warranty change for battery issues.

 

Im going to reset the watch and disable all the Shealth features, GPS stuff, barometer and that stuff... Wish me luck
