Anyone else having problems with their watch 3 battery life?
I have tried changing heart rate monitor to manual (was on every 10 mins) most of the time it is connected to my phone using Bluetooth - very rarely it is on stand alone, I have tried closing down recently used apps and location is off.
In 3 hours (since the last full charge) it has drained just over 30%... I didn't even get a full 24hrs out of it the other day.
Have paid so much for this watch and the battery is not lasting nearly as long as I thought it would!
Yes, tried closing all running apps don't know why it's got so bad.... I hardly even 'actually' use it to its full potential either... Only a few exercise classes a week that I track, never use the music player, never really use it for phone calls, it's a bit ridiculous really... My brother has the watch 2 and his lasts way longer!
Hi, i have had my Galaxy Watch 3 41mm for exactly a week now. So far its been good. Just to check the battery life, i took it of from charger yesterday morning with 100%. Always On Display turned off, Heart Rate manual only, Location Off, NFC on, Brightness at 5. Used it continuously until now including night to track sleep and i still have 30% battery left.
Try rebooting the device. May be that will help. Was there a triggering point when this problem started? Like a software update or something?
Thank you, even with your drainage.... Less than 48 hours with more or less everything switched off I would say is pretty poor... I would be at least expecting 4 days until I would have to put it on charge again. Its the worst watch that I have ever had for battery draining 🤔
I have never used a smartwatch before. But evwn samsung is only claiming 43 hours of typical usage for watch 3 41mm. So for me, i am getting more than what is was told. What size is your watch? If its 45mm then you should get more but even for that samsung is only claiming 56 hours
