Hi 

My Watch 4 battery isn't lasting more than a day. I googled for ideas....so I have done the updates, lowered the brightness, closed and deleted apps as suggested but it's still the same.

Any ideas please??

Many thanks

Hi @Cazzer64 ,other ideas are to turn off unused Health Trackers,turn off connections when not needed or use the Power Saving Mode.  You may also try wiping the cache partition  following these steps:

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. 

The average Battery life is said to be 40 hours  though that is based on Moderate use.

When I had mine, it only lasted a day and a half. I know other have posted they got near 3 days but I have never seen it, not to say it's not possible just never seen it.

Must admit most I have ever had with it was less than 2 days...I'm doing a 26 mile trek soon and I'm now not expecting it to last the journey 😕
What have you changed to if you don't mind me asking?

Best thing I did was get the GW5 Pro, get over 3 days per charge, same settings and notifications

The reason I upgraded was because the battery life and amount of charging needed annoyed me

I have the watch 4, rarely got much more than a day and a half's use on full charge. I do not use all the health functions as well,regularly monitor sleep though.
