Had a watch update ...looked mostly like the update was for Samsung health..

Watch used to last 2.5 days...now only lasts 1 day..

Update was shortly before black Friday...

Call me cynical but this does seem very convenient 😡

@Mjf69: I'm sorry to hear that you're having some battery issues following your recent update. If you head to the Galaxy Wearables app on your phone > Watch Settings > Battery, can you see any apps or features listed here that are using an abnormal amount of battery? In the meantime, please take a look at the steps below to improve your overall battery life.

- Disable Watch Always On, if applicable, via Settings > Display > Watch Always On.
- Disable Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when not in use
- Disable unused health features, such as the Heart Rate Tracker, by heading to Samsung Health > Settings > Measurement > Manual Only
- Settings > Battery > Watch Only > Turn On (for periods of downtime).

All these things worked fine before the update...
The solution you have given decreases the functionality of the watch..what's the point in that 🤷‍♂️

In the last 10 hours ( while sleeping) the health app has used 22% of the battery.
The last watch update was mainly the health app ....
Thanks very much for this Samsung 😡

Id try clearing the cache and see if that helps. I do that after every update and it seems to help. Youtube video here shows you how to do ut https://youtu.be/3mvRvEsAPpE
