  3. Tap Battery Saver Battery saver.
    • ​​​If you don’t see this option: Tap Settings Settings and then System and then Battery. Turn on Battery saver.

Set Battery Saver to turn on automatically

Your watch can automatically turn on Battery Saver when your battery level is at 10% or less.

  2. From the top of your watch’s screen, swipe down and tap Settings and then System and then Battery.

    • Note: Some watches show a different percentage, like 15%.

What changes when Battery Saver is on

When your watch turns on Battery Saver, it will only show you the time. To save power, your watch:

  • Stops sending you notifications
  • Disables vibration, location services, and most background data
  • Turns off "Always on" display
  • Won't connect to Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or mobile networks

When Battery Saver is on, check the time by pressing the Power button.

What happens when you take off your watch

After 30 minutes of inactivity, your watch will recognize that it’s not on your wrist and then switch to a low-power mode.

Depending on your watch, some of the following changes may happen:

  • The watch screen turns off.
  • Notifications, alarms, and alerts from your phone are disabled.
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and cellular services are turned off.
  • Less battery power is used in the background.

To return your watch features to normal, put it back on your wrist.
