    I just got the series 3 gps version at bestbuy but it’s used. My issue is the battery life sucks. Is there anything I should be looking for on it?

    Thanks all..

    The Series 3's battery life shouldn't suck as it lasts longer than the Series 2 (which already has good battery life), moreover it's the GPS version.

    If you think the battery life doesn't last you a single day, try doing a reset/unpair and then pair it back as a new watch. The battery life should be better.

    What is your definition of “sucks”?

    The s3 should last a full day if not longer depending on what you are doing.

    I have the Series 3 cellular + GPS version and typically take it off the charger around 8:10 AM and put it back on the charger around 10 PM. It usually have about 77% battery charge remaining when I put it back on the charger at 10 PM. That’s excellent battery life, in my opinion.

    Anyway, I suggest you un-pair it from your iPhone and then pair it again.

    I took mine off the charger at 5am+ and placed it back on my charger around just over midnight, battery left 45% with light LTE usage.

    I charge my s3 every other day only. Sometimes It can go 2 full days without charging and charge it on the 3rd day.

    I take my s3 off charger at 7 am when I leave for work. At bedtime (11pm-ish) I'm still around 60-70% battery depending on the day. I set the s3 to airplane and theater mode so HeartWatch and SleepMode can to their things. At 6 am I'm at about 50-60% and put it on the charger while I get ready for work.

    Battery life on the s3 is phenomenal.
