It's my First Smart Watch ever

all you young experienced smart watch users - - - I need help.  Purchased my first “Galaxy Watch 5 40mm”.


Other than use it to tell the time (because I haven’t had a chance to learn and play with it yet) it is simply telling time for me.   It started out with 100% charge at 6 am and is dead by 4 pm.   I was told when I purchased it it would stay charged for a day or 2.  What’s the point in having it, if it can’t even make it through my work day.   I can’t imagine if I was using it for other stuff.  


Thanks for your thoughts.

I have a Pixel watch and I take it off charge at 5am and it's now it's at 40% at almost 9pm.

I've had it since the end of March and the battery life is much better now than it was. Hopefully that's the case with the Samsung watches also.

That’s pretty bad.  It should last a day or two, as you were told.  Somewhere in the documentation there should be a number for Samsung support.  Good luck.
