Have no idea if it's fixed, but I do recall reading about pretty bad battery drain on these...

The spec says "Power up -- for up to 4 days: The superior battery within the S3 can last up to 4 days on a single charge. That's well above the industry standard; plus it only takes 2 hours to fully recharge."

Complete BS, you have to disable always on display, pray, and it will still not last 4 days :)

For the haters, I have this watch and it may not be perfect, but it's very nice.

This could be mine lol I just returned my S3 Frontier 2 days ago lol. I agree that the watch is a bit thick. Battery life was good for the 2 weeks I used it, just found having the smart watch was unnecessary for me.

Anything on WearOS is running on a 4 year old CPU tech.

The SnapDragon 3100 cpu is still on the 28nm node first released in 2014.

The Samsung S3 cpu is already 14nm, a 2017 tech, a whole generation in advance.
:arrowl: Thanks if Helped! :D
