Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question. The batteries would be getting near the end of their usable lifetime, in all likelihood - if it isn't also something else that's wrong, but the primary symptom of losing charge very quickly is likely distinctive and diagnostic.All rechargeable batteries, of whatever technology, used in portable electronic devices, eventually and with time and/or usage, lose either their ability to hold charge, or their ability to deliver sufficient power/voltage to keep the device running. So rechargeable batteries - generally after about 1 1/2 years or longer - need replacing. That's what I recommend that you try with the S3 golf watches. (Also note whether they overheat at all, even slightly... that could point to another type of problem, though it is unlikely in that small and simple a device.)
