after update to latest version in link below, while charging to 90% plus. gear s3 frontier shut down on its own. seem like bug? auto shut down happens only while charging to 90%++, somewhat reproducible issue. Does not happen in normal use (not charging).

IP68 but water damaged?!?

My Gear S3 has been pronounced dead.

Performed the latest software update but watch wouldn't charge afterwards. Brought it down to Vivo, and was told that it is due to water corrosion rather than software update.

Water inside a IP68 rated device?!? Water Damage not covered under warranty?!?

Hand to my heart, I have never went swimming with it. The most I did was wash the watch under running tap. This IP68 rating must be a joke.

Quoted $400+ for repair, because double whammy: water damage is not covered under warranty, and in any case my 13 months old watch is out of warranty.

Took my watch back, threw it into the thrash. Pissed!

For all the bros here, please just take note that Samsung will not stand behind their IP68 certification.

havent have time to do it yet. Tried full reset the watch. battery still same. drain very fast.

One thing i dun know. watch on. when drained and auto power down show 1% battery. Once put on the charger. The charging state 50+% battery and start charging up. Dun know what is the problem? battery or motherboard?

there is a chance that the battery itself is not functioning well, or the board too. get it checked at service centre with the appropriate software and diagnostics..

I think my new ez-link Samsung charm interfering due to too close proximity to NFC part of the watch

I think there was some problem with previous rom, until battery cannot charge. I diy and replaced the battery, flash new rom and now it's working well.

Not sure if it's purposely done by samsung for the battery algorithm.
