Calling out to all Galaxy watch 5 pro owners.

Can you just post here your settings and your battery life?

I feel like I have a unit with a faulty battery.

I have only stress measurement turned on to measure continuously and some notifications are on. Wifi is off. AOD is off. Location is on but accuracy off. Wrist wake is on. I wear it to sleep so it does track my sleep. Blood oxygen and snore during sleep is off. I have some alarms for the morning. I never use maps on my watch and I don't track work outs on it either.

With all those settings, I can only squeeze in close to 2 days battery life. Looking everywhere online, most people can get up to 4 days with those settings. I use my apple watch ultra for most of the health tracking (yes, I wear 2 watches 🤣).

Considering going to a Samsung service center to get my watch checked but I wanted to know the battery life of other real users first and not biased reviews on YouTube. 

Thank you!

Hi Deeezzyyy, we are sorry to hear this issue on your Galaxy watch 5 pro.

Have you tried resetting your watch to default settings and check the battery life?

I have resetted and factory formatted the watch like 3 times already so no, that doesn't fix nada.

That's my issue. You even have always on display on and you get 3 days. I don't even have it on and I get less than 2 days

Doesn't sound right you should be getting at least 3 days

Honestly, I'm amazed at how polished it is. I am not really a fan of apple products but I must admit that I am very very impressed by the watch. Everything is extremely smooth. The measurements seem to be accurate and fast.

Plus, battery life is amazing even with everything turned on except AOD. 3+ days close to 4.

I loved the rugged look so I wanted to test it out for the fun of it and return it afterwards. But now I feel like I might just keep it lol

If it was possible to connect the apple watch ultra with my Samsung, I'd switch to it from the GW5 Pro in a heartbeat.

Yeah my son and daughter have the regular apple watches and I'm not impressed but the ultra looks good in my opinion
