Since the last software update of the gear s3, which is awesome, the battery is drastically draining, it's barely lasting 1 day while i used to get solid 2 days, sometimes 2.5 days for the past year.
I turned off the heart monitor, display brightness is set to 3, no voice calls, un installed unnecessary stuff, checked the usage, it says the watch face and s health are each using up to 25% knowing that the screen is most of the time off and all auto detections are off, very very bad. I keep on closing apps and refreshing ram to have nothing running in the background. It is now at 80% after 4 hrs of use, which is occasionally looking at the time.

Hey, well, none, i restarted it, battery consumption was better, every time i feel it's draining more than usual, i just restart it. Back to 2 days of battery life now.

I turned off half the features, no heart rate, no workout detection, no calls, wifi optional, brightness set to 4, and it's 2 days now max, but using it as a regular watch. A dumb watch actually.

Sent them the watch to fix the battery, they said nothing is wrong with it, collected it and updated the software, it suddenly got stuck in reboot mode, so i sent it again amd now got an140$ assessment that the pba and rear assy amd battery meed to be replaced. They didn't mention the battery when I first gave it to them, i don't trust the service center anymore and it's either the software update or the already damaged battery that fu**ed it up. Bunch of incompetent people, slowly becoming like apple.
