Pathetic battery life of Watch 6 Classic

I thought I was upgrading to a better product when I moved to a Watch 6 Classic from my Fitbit smart watch some 4 months ago. But I am hugely regretting it due to the pathetic battery life of the Watch 6. Today it died in the middle of my gym workout. There was no warning even. I used to get three days out of my Fitbit and I used a lot of the functionalities. But I can barely get 20 hours from the Watch 6!

Has anyone got any ideas on how to maximise battery life without sacrificing functionalities? I already use only the health functions - no calls, messaging from watch, music, payments etc.

Hi @JakeinLondon.

Let's make sure that the watch is updated. Open the Galaxy Wearable app > Tap on About watch > Update watch software > Download and install. Also, turn the 'Always on Watch' feature off. To turn off Always on Watch, go into Settings > Watch faces > Watch always on > Toggle off.

1. From day one I have had the always on feature off.
2. I religiously keep all my devices updated as soon any new updates are available.
I just think the device is too inherently power hungry!
