    3 day 7 hrs doesn't sound too bad with notifications on , nothing close to what we initially thought we'd get. Should be getting mine hopefully tomorrow, and will switch on most setting and hope to get 2 days.....so many things to charge in my life

    If it can do 48 hours without turning everything off then I'll be fine I think, with AOD and bluetooth on but GPS & Lte only on when needed 48h+ should be possible

    Likewise. I took my watch off the charger an hour and a half ago, and with my AOD on it's still at 99%.
    @jlangner you try doing a factory reset?
    Tried the reset this morning.

    Do the alarms work in goodnight mode? Would be a little stupid if they didn't

    It's a mystery - that is, it's varied, for some reason. The purpose of this thread should be to try to find out what's going on.

    For me, the battery life is terrible. Fully charged before bed, I can just make it through to the next evening. I don't use the LTE feature during the day. I don't use the bezel to turn on the face. I did use it for exercise for 40 minutes.

    The second day, same conditions, I didn't make it even to the afternoon, after putting it on fully charged the night before.

    1) Watch face. Does it matter the complexity of the watch face?
    2) Brightness. I do like to comfortably see the watch face. What are your brightness settings?
    3) Bluetooth. I connect to an iPhone, leave it constantly connected.

    Yes, my morning alarm works with the Goodnight mode on.

    I was having the issue. I exchanged it for a new one. Major improvement. End of the day and I'm still at 90%. I recommend exchanging it.

    After resetting mine I went from 100% last night around 8:00 to 95% this morning at 7:00am. So fixed my problem.

    Mines going to last about 2 days top. I wore it to bed with the goodnight mode on and it lost 8% just overnight with no usage. But I had my WIFI turned to on, I have corrected that to turn off once connected to BT so will see if that makes a difference.
    Same issue battery life is not good..

    I have the 46mm silver LTE Tmobile version. The battery life depends on settings and use but here's what I'm seeing:
    Bluetooth connected with AOD on: 2.5 days
    Bluetooth connected with AOD off: 3.5 days
    LTE only (remote connection): 1.5 days

    So not great, but not bad either!

    Ok it's been more than a couple of days now and in the Uk pre orders arrive on the 6th Sept.

    Got the s9 plus and battery life was a big let down and will get worse using Bluetooth with the Galaxy watch.

    Any Gear 3 user's or general smart watch user have any comments/thought's on battery life?

    Lived up to expectations? let down?
    Received sat charged Sunday evening had to charge again Tuesday morning not sure how long this charge will last.?

    I lose about 1.5% per hour with regular usage. I still charge every night but now I know that when I work out in the evening, it will not die.

    Folks with the LTE version...question for you: I often times leave my watch sitting on the table not charging, and go out of range with my phone. Normally when I go out of range the watch will connect to LTE. In this case should I have the WIFI and LTE turned to auto? Meaning when I go out of range the watch connects to WIFI vs LTE? Would that essentially save battery?

    Haven't gotten mine yet so can't answer your question but if leaving the watch behind would the easiest not be to put it in airplane mode

    My S3 used to finish the day on around 70% but with the exact same usage my Galaxy Watch is down to 60% - odd for a bigger battery?

    I had similar after the first update so I reset to defaults and now have about 80% after 1 day. At 3 days I usually have 30-40% left but usually charge then. (LTE version)

    I have just got a full 4 days with my 46mm watch. It still have 12% and said it would go for another 11 hours but I wanted to charge it this morning. The first charge only lasted around the 2 days, so has improved but I put the first charge down to the fact I was playing with it alot. I have most things on, heart rate every 10 mins, receive most messages and have used it to take calls a few times. So overall I am pleased with the battery life at the moment.

    The first 2 days I got my 46mm LTE, I got close to 3 days. Now I'm using over 50% everyday. I'd like to know what I'm doing wrong
