Strava (I think) draining battery of Galaxy Watch 3

So I bought a Galaxy 3 mainly to use Strava on to record bike rides.

It drains the battery within 4 hours which usually means a ride is lost.

I have removed all apps apart from Strava, all connectivity is switched off apart from location services.

I have already done a factory reset and the watch has been back to Samsung, not sure what they did but it didn't solve my problem.

What can I do to stop this battery drain?  it renders the watch not fit for the purpose I bought it for.

Any advice/suggestions much appreciated.  Am so disappointed by the watch!

Strava eats batteries whether using a watch tablet or otherwise. Doesn't matter if it's iPhone or Android. There are many complaints about this widespread issue.

Thanks for your response.

Strava doesn't eat my phone battery - Samsung S7 edge uses 15% in the time it takes the watch to drain.
