Samsung also provides a host of functions and apps for its Galaxy smartwatches, so that users don’t have to leave their mobiles to perform simple tasks. The battery is a vital part, and obviously, no one likes to charge it again and again due to a draining issue.
9 Tips to extend Battery life of Samsung Galaxy Watch
1) Update Software
It is very important to keep your watch updated because many times some bugs come up, which are fixed by the company through new updates. You can easily check and update your smartwatch, just need to follow a few steps.
Firstly, connect your watch to your Android phone, open the Samsung Wearable app >> navigate to Watch settings >> Watch software update >> Download and install. If an update is available, tap the Update now option, and on the Watch software update’ screen, tap Install now.
2) Update Apps
Sometimes apps may have bugs that cause them to consume too much battery, make sure all your apps are up to date for the best performance.
3) Unused Heath Trackers
Sometimes it happens that we start many health-tracking functions and forget to use them regularly. Due to this, the Watch battery starts decreasing even without using it.
Swipe upwards on the Watch screen and from the Apps screen tap Samsung Health. Swipe up on a feature’s health menu and tap it to turn it off. After exiting any health menu, double-press the Watch Back button to return to the watch face. (Double-pressing the Back key will not return to the main menu of the Samsung Health app)
4) Delete Data and Close Background Apps
Open the Galaxy Wearable >> tap the Watch Settings >> press the About Watch option >> click on Storage >> tap Image or Audio >> Click the Delete button.
5) Power Saving mode
When power saving mode is on, your watch’s home screen will be shown in grayscale and all functions will be turned off except for calls, messages, and notifications that use Bluetooth. Wi-Fi and mobile data will also be turned off, and performance will be limited.
From Galaxy Watch 5 Settings, open the Battery section and tap on Power saving mode to turn it on. Also, you can turn it on through Quick Menu.
6) Turn off Network connections
Some of the apps and features that we cannot use without Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or mobile network connection. Turn on only the connection functions you need, you can turn off all the rest to save battery.
To turn on some connections, swipe up on the Watch screen and open Settings. Tap Connections, you can turn off the Mobile network and Wi-Fi.
7) Customize your notification settings
You should customize notifications as per your preference. Open Settings on your watch >> Click on Notifications >> Tap on Advanced Settings >> turn off the switches for Show with details and Turn on the screen.
Temperature is also a factor in reducing watch battery life, exposing it to very cold or hot temperatures can cause damage.
9) Turn off the Watch Always on Display
Of course, the Always on Display function eats up a lot of battery. If you want to save it then from Settings of the Watch, open the Display section and tap on the Always on Display toggle to turn it off.
Note: You can customize these settings from both your smartphone and smartwatch.

and you will receive Beta4 next week.
