Hi, updated my watch and since its been done I have found the battery life decrease significantly more than before, I used to get 4 days without allways on screen now im only getting around 1-2 days max. Has anyone else been having this issue since the new update ? 

 

Thanks

It can take a short while for the watch to settle after an update @TDazza123

 

Assuming that you've not downloaded any new apps that maybe using more resources it could also be your watch apps optimising. 

 

If this continues then a last resort could be to factory reset the watch.

Same issue, left it to settle just got worse, reset the watch, the same, reinstalled the app and reset the watch - the same.

 

For my the weather app, samsung pay and the new update have took a 3 day battery life to 1.5 days if lucky - a disaster.

Samsung you have taken a GREAT product and ruined it

Hi ,

 

Thanks, I do think that myself, always seems to be teething problems with new OS so I will wait it out and see how it goes. Hopefully battery improves

I wouldn't go as far as they have ruined it but yes it is a little flustrating, we will need to allow time for the watch to settle with the new OS

Same ***** from 4 days to one. Done fresh start and after a while, 2 or 3 days starts to drain again. My first Samsung and probably my last

But the phone is like a cake? Sorry but I won't buy that, and it's been, for me at least 1 week, how much time should I wait?
