Tizen 3.0 update with Gear S3 battery fix now rolling out in Europe

Home / News / Tizen 3.0 update with Gear S3 battery fix now rolling out in Europe

Samsung released Tizen 3.0 for Gear S3 last month. The latest Value Pack Update for the Gear S3 Classic and Gear S3 Frontier brought a handful of new features but also introduced a bug. The bug caused the smartwatch’s battery to drain quickly for no reason.

Samsung suspended the update’s release and took a few days to launch the revised version of the Tizen 3.0 update. The revised update is now rolling out for the Gear S3 in Europe.

Revised Tizen 3.0 update for Gear S3

The company originally released firmware version R760XXU2CQK3 for the Gear S3 last month but most users were stuck on the previous R760XXU2BQC5 firmware version. We then received word from Samsung Netherlands that the Tizen 3.0 release was halted due to battery life issues after the update.

Samsung rolled out the revised update for the Gear S3 in North America last week. It’s now rolling out the same update in markets across Europe. Firmware version R760XXU2CQL1 has been released and it includes the battery life fix for the Gear S3.

The latest firmware update for the Gear S3 is being released in phases so it may be a while before it goes live in all regions across the globe. Some can expect to receive it early next month.

Its in the UK this morning. Just updated. As of yesterday morning when my battery went flat and after a full recharge it used 50% battery in under 24 hours. Hopefully update takes it back to my usual 4 day usage.

Still no patch/update arrived here in the UK, battery level still a issue for me after original tizen 3 update. Come on Samsung, don’t forget us here in the UK please, tried a full reset twice and still the same battery drain issue.

Just arrived in Turkey tonight. I never experienced any battery drain at all, still getting 3 days plus……maybe now it will be even better! A friend of mine did have a big problem with his in the UK, so maybe I was lucky..

I got the update (in USA) last week and the battery life was still a problem, until I did a full reset of the gear.
Fully charge before sleep, and wake up in the morning:
pre-reset: 100% -> ~80%
post-reset: 100% -> ~92%
Overall usage:
pre-reset: recharge every 2 days (~10% at the end of day 2)
post-reset: recharge every 3-4 days (~40% at the end of day 2)

Yep, it’s out in Russia. Hope it returns my battery to 4 days. It was 4 before the Tizen 3 update, now it’s 2.5. Not awful per se, but less than what I got used to.

Just installed R760XXU2CQL1 update here in the Philippines and it seems to have lot of things tweaked by the looks of the menu interface. However, I checked both the Gear S app and the software info under Settings>About Gear menu but it doesn’t show any changelog. Anyone know the full list of changes? Thanks in advance
