Why would they allow apps to run in the background on such a tiny device, the S3 just can't handle that. It also REALLY did not need that feature, how hard is it to just swipe to the app you are using. My watch has never ran so SLOW up until this new update, awful idea.
My S3 D420 drain the battwey within 12 HOURS. All this after the last update.
Until recently my Gear S3 would drop to 75% battery by the end of the day. Since update the battery drains completely by early afternoon. This was sudden and not gradual so this isn't natural degradation. Ditching S3 for a Garmin. Won't buy Samsung Gear again if current problems not resolved.
My sensors are all dead. Its just a regular watch now. Has anyone find a solution yet?
Amara, 30 Jun 2020Yes exactly. Battery draining way too fast since last update. 3-4 times fasterUsed to have 3d+ battery now it dropped to half I'm struggling getting 2 whole days I'm very disappointed:(
Did the bixby update come out for the gear s3? I have not had any updates yet and every time I check it says its the latest update.
Luke, 03 Jun 2020Ever since installing this update, my watch has turned to sh*t. Battery drains in half a day, ... moreThe same applies to me, unfortunately. Same software version, my GearS3 had suddenly gone s**t, with +200% energy consuption (from 2+ days to 12 hours at best), in the last 7-10 days; and got very laggy.
Don't think battery can decade this fast, this has to be a software problem.
Samsung?!? Please fix, quickly!
Luke, 03 Jun 2020Ever since installing this update, my watch has turned to sh*t. Battery drains in half a day, ... moreI have the Gear S3 model SM-R760. Since the R760XXU2FTD4 update non of my sensors are working, the battery drains within a day. Does anyone have these issues? I need a fix. H-E-L-P
Ever since installing this update, my watch has turned to sh*t. Battery drains in half a day, watch is sluggish at best. I've done everything I can to get the battery to last longer, have read a million articles on how to solve it. Still no better.
Is there a way to uninstall the update?
Has anyone had problems with replying through notifications since this update? I'm no longer able to nothing happens when I press the mic, emoji or keyboard buttons anymore since updating.
Love the new update now both my samsung a50s and gear sport have bixby
ThunderCrackR, 12 May 2020Would be nice to see this kind of software support for their over $1000 flagship phones.Samsung always provides the latest software version update and security patches for all their flagship models, so it should be a relieve.
I have just receive the new firmware because my S3 is patch USA.
Software version One UI watch 1.5
Version Tizen 184.108.40.206
Version software R760XXU2FTD4.
At the moment all OK.
Have the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier 2 years now, the best Samsung product I have ever had, got me already a new battery for when this one dies.
Look quite good in design and the specifications too are good enough. When can we expect them?
