I updated my Galaxy Watch 4 Classic to R895FXXU1GWA3 this morning and now battery consumption is going through the roof! You can actually see the percentage remaining counting down. Has anyone else experienced this? Any fixes? TIA

Once updated it isn't possible to revert. You could try wiping the watches cache partition.

Could also clear cache for the wear app. Reboot the phone after, see how it goes from there.

@Ray42  you may well find the wipe cache partition video instructive and helpful.

Written format here  for anyone who may prefer it.

You should have the battery fully charged before starting this process on your smartwatch.

1. The Samsung Galaxy Watch must be turned on.

2. Now press and hold the "HOME" and "BACK" buttons simultaneously until you see the Samsung logo with "Rebooting".

3. Now release both buttons immediately and now press the home button (top right) quickly one after the other.

4. You are now in the boot menu of the Samsung Galaxy Watch. In this menu you can scroll with the "HOME" button by pressing it repeatedly.

5. Now navigate to the menu item "RECOVERY" and then press and hold the "HOME" button. This will reboot the Samsung Galaxy Watch into Android recovery mode.

6.You are now in recovery mode, which is similar to that of Samsung Galaxy smartphones.

7. Now press the "BACK" button (lower button on the right) until you have selected the menu item "WIPE CACHE PARTITION". To select it, press the "HOME" button once.

8. Now select "YES" by scrolling down and then select the entry with the home button.

9. The Wipe Cache partiton will now be executed on your Samsung Galaxy Watch. This takes a few seconds. Afterwards, the recovery menu is displayed again. Now select "Reboot Now" to restart the Samsung Galaxy Watch. You now know the procedure to perform a wipe cache partition on a Samsung Galaxy Watch.

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

I tried clearing the cache on both the phone app and the watch. Before the update, fully charged the watch would say 2 and a half days life, now it says 2 days. Where's my half a day gone?

My experience that after every update, the battery drains quickly and after 1 or 2 recharges stabilizes. If there is nothing wrong with the update, your watch battery should also return to normal within a couple of days.
