I bought the new samsung watch 3 at the end of October to update my samsung sport watch. I really am impressed with it apart from I have to charge up every single day. The battery life is in my opinion is awful. I use it mainly for my fitness and any tips or recommendations would be gratefully appreciated. Am very tempted to take it back.

I charge mine during my shower and make sure that the always on watch face is not on. Also the larger one has a better battery life. However I am very irritated that many workouts are not available on the watch, for example dance or trampoline workouts, horseback riding. Some are available on the Samsung Health app, but not on the watch. Also an auto pauses in the middle of my workouts and drives me nuts.

I'm getting over 54hrs on the 45mm version, that includes recording activity for 3hrs each day, plus steps and HR is set to measure continuous instead of every 10 mins.
You can turn off Auto pause for each workout.

Yes, I'm having the same problem. It never records my steps when I'm dancing or moving side to side. This is very frustrating, I am considering returning. It also doesn't automatically record jumping or dancing as activity.
