Just a word of warning to potential buyers, the Gear S3 has a new software update available that has generated a lot of problems, particularly with significantly worsened battery life. I would suggest holding off on downloading and installing the update until the issues are corrected. Google "S3 Tizen 3 battery problems" for more info. Good price though....great watch.

I've heard of people having this problem too. For what it is worth though, I am still getting 3 days of battery after the update.

My watch from Amazon warehouse doesn't charge to 100 percent. Bought it for offline Spotify so I can run without my phone. Works well enough for that.

I can get probably a day and a half of battery from it.

I get two full days, which is slightly worse than pre update. Not a huge deal, i charged it every other night anyway.

Can't wait for this to fall below $200. Samsung Pay on it makes THE watch to get. I basically don't carry my wallet anymore.

Good for you, glad to hear you're largely unaffected. I think this might be something related to specific production runs of the watch. I went from AOD on, generic watchface, a few messages here and there and getting home at night at about 50%. Now, I am at about 20% with the exact same settings/usage. Lots of Gear S plugin errors too... they're endless. Factory reset and full uninstall from phone helped for about a day, then it all went to sh*t again. I basically now have the same battery life as my original Moto 360.

How? I barely get a day and half and I have disabled the heart rate.

Been on hold from Costco customer care and live chat for over an hour. hoping to get a coupon code from them. This is the best smart watch in my opinion. Wish me luck!

I was able to use the online only $25 off coupon to make a purchase. Nice deal for a decent smart watch!
