Samsung Gear S3 battery drain problem fixed with latest update1
The latest software update for the Gear S3 frontier edition, carrying the beautiful name R760XXU2CRK2, is meant to put an end to the problem once and for all, SamMobile tells us.
At only 10.17 MB, the update is quite small and so is the list of fixes:
It’s hard to make it clearer what the purpose of this version of the software is. If the watch hasn’t updated automatically, you can start the update from the app you’re using on your phone (Galaxy Wearable for Android or Samsung Galaxy Watch for iOS) and go to:
Settings > About Gear >Update Gear software.
And that’s it, your battery drain headaches should be in the past! Unless you’re using the Gear Sport, in which case you’ll have to wait a bit more until an update is released for it as well.
The fix wasn’t the fastest one we’ve seen, but still, Samsung deserves credit for taking the issue seriously and providing people a proper solution.
