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?
I agree, if it were one or two people then just maybe, it's hardware.
But so so many people across, UK, US and Malaysia that I have seen are reporting this.
Mine only drains at night. Today has been 37% battery used over 15 hours. Pretry good tbh.
Am going to fully charge it so it's at 100% When I go to bed.
See if the back up and reset have made any difference.
Not holding my breath but watch this space.
Another one here. Been ok for a while however I find the HR terrible over any medium intensity activity. Last few days it's been destroying the battery over night. I wore it before bed at 22:09 and it was 100% then this morning it was dead by 7am.
I'm hoping Argos will do a return and I can buy a Garmin fenix that I should have bought in the first palace.
Same thing happening here. I got my watch 2 weeks ago. It has had an awesome battery life, which I have loved until 2 nights ago. Both nights it has been at a 100% at 9 pm and completely dead when I wake at 4:30 am. Sounds like this is not just an issue with my watch, which is reassuring but frustrating as I can't wear it!
Interesting, I've just checked battery using the gear wearables app and it says that stopwatch app has used 21% of battery in last 10hrs. Not sure about the time there as it's been flat since 7am when I went to work.
Is anyone else using this app? I only installed it on Monday and since then is when I had issues.
Mine is showing 59% usage from Samsung health and I have 88% battery life remaining which it thinks is 1 day 23 hours.
I'm going to have to pull an all nighter to keep my watch on. :face-with-tears-of-joy:
