I just got my brand new Galaxy Watch 4 (yesterday) and it drained battery at a rate of about 25% every 5 hours, which is bad enough in its own right. But today, after a full night's charge, it completely died in just 4 HOURS. when it got down to 10% and below it would lose 1% ever 20 SECONDS, what is this and why is this happening??

Hey, I've already been to the troubleshooting page and it didn't seems to slow the drain at all, this has to be a software issue and I hope Samsung pays attention to it, these watches are to expensive to be having really bad issues like this.

I dont think there is a definitive answer, but as its new id suspect You have updated the device and played with settings which will disrupt your battery to a degree. I'd first of all try clearing your device cache partition, follow this youtube vid to show you how.

I'm not sure if yours is lte or bt version but if you are in a weak signal area and have lte always connected it can drain the battery if your watch is struggling to connect to lte, so id only enable this is you need it (set it to auto rather than always on). I'd make sure that wifi isn't connected unless absolutely needed as you can use Bluetooth or lte instead. Mine seemed to die quickly at first but it did seem to calm down after a few days. Hope this helps

I have a 40mm LTE. With just AOD on and all the radios off even LTE it lasts about 18 hours max including 9 hours bedtime, dies before i start my workout in the evening, feeling cheated. Worst decision to stick with it. Never trusting youtube again.
