Settings>Location>Google Location Accuracy>Improve Location Accuracy - TURN THIS OFF LOCATION WILL STILL WORK WITHOUT THIS. It seems to be updating location too often causing massive battery drain of the watch in less than an hour. Screenshot of what to turn off attached.

Try it then let me know if it works for you I've literally suffered an entire month in watch only mode finally this fix worked for me. Even with sensors on all the time and network set to auto, data set to on.

Looks about right I set my mobile data to auto will turn on only when disconeyto the phone. Will save a little more. But you will notice a further improvement over time. I'm getting 2 days battery considering my heart rate monitor is on continuous and I use always on display. I've also removed the wrist and bezel movement to wake screen helps a lot on battery.

They is good. I use mobile data mostly at work as I have to keep my phone locked up...then I turn Bluetooth and WiFi off..
But I will monitor my settings.
Thanks very much for your help by the way

My pleasure, I was struggling with only a few hours battery life who knew a single option would make such a big difference. The option is not even required to be on for location services to work.

I'll give it a go and get back to you.

The battery life is really killing my like for the Galaxy watch 6 classic. My original Watch Classic running on Tizen lasted 3-4 days on one charge and continues to. I'm lucky to get a day out of this one! I'll see what happens now I've turned the service off as you've said and report back.
