Gear sport Battery draining at night


My gear sport watch, which is around 6 months old, had started to battery drain every night. It happens at around 3am. The battery percentage is around 70% when I go to bed (10-11pm) 

I know the time accurately because the sleep record and HR record switch off. 

Has anyone else had this issue?

Im in the same situation my Gear sport has completly drained through the night for the last 3 days, I have tried a reset today but checking my gear its drained %65 in the last 5 hours? not happy at all 😞 


All - here is the response that i just received via US Customer Service via twitter:

To increase the battery life on the Gear after the update please follow the steps below ↓ •On the Gear tap on setting; •Tap on Gear info. •Tap Report diagnostic and usage info (Disable this feature) Test the watch for a few days to see how the battery works.


I think I will try this buddy. Thank you!!


Let's see how the night goes by... 



Just deactivated reporting as well and will feedback results tomorrow.

A tech news site has noticed this thread and might publish something.  That might make samsung pay attention



@Donna1800 wonderful 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 

@MikeWaves have tried this. We'll see. 


Thanks everyone for adding to this. 


I have sent an error report from my phone to Samsung support via Samsung members app on my phone, for what good it will do 

Thanks, Mike, I've disabled diagnostics, hoping this solves the issue until Samsung can push an update.
Hope it works... thanks!
