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?

I did a forced stop on it on the phone with no impact.  Using Note5.

Thx. Sad it makes the great features of the smart watch useless. Samsung needs to wake up!!! So far with this and the note 7 debacle they have a serious credibility problem

I had the same issue and found the solution on another forum that has worked like a charm, Charged to 100% yesterday 9am 10/18 and at 2:10 pm est today I still have 53% left. 

 

1) go to settings on watch and go to "about gear" Scroll down to "report diagnostic ancd usage information and uncheck it.

2) next, and I thought this was a funny solution, but after the above put your watch on the charger and while it is charging, press and hold power until it reboots and let it finish charging. 

3) welcome to 3 days of battery life again.

I also disabled diagnostic reporting and health notifications and after almost 24 hours I still have 75% battery.  Not sure which one of the two worked though.

Tried this and it seems alot better hopefully tjis will keep it going until samsung get their act together and put out a new firmware

It seems battery life is back to normal. Does it make sense to replace my gear S3 since I have only few hours left for the replacement window.

 It worked!!! 

 

Just follow the instructions from majornerd. 

I just enable the auto detect workout and didn't drain my battery

I know it's annoying, the main reason why i changed from Apple over to Samsung. Big retailers do this, there was s post mistakenly made live by Apple saying they on purpose produce updates to defect the current models to force people to upgrade on new releases. Apple apologuesd so guessing Samsung doing the same. This is why i was hesitate to get a smart watch the hassles we all go for and you think normal watch be better off then smart watch.
