Using GPS on Galaxy watch chews up battery! 
Yesterday i went on a bicycle ride for 60 kms, after 50kms i took a break and rested, when i resumed my ride, the watch stopped at 57 kms mark (Strava) for battery saver mode! 
Does that mean one should be equipped with 2 watches? Apalling Samsung!! 
Look at Garmin, Fitbit Sunnto all provide more than 10 hrs of battery on GPS. They are all better competitors and Samsung will have to compete in order to stay afloat.
Improve it!!

i am aware and do understand GPS drains battery, point in case being in comparison to other smart-watches like Garmin, Fitbit, Sunnto etc they last for good 12+ hours some give 15-16 hrs of battery life on GPS!!
