Make a low battery last longer

When your watch’s battery gets low, you can use Battery Saver mode to use your watch for longer.

Turn on Battery Saver

  1. If your screen is dim, tap it to wake up the watch.
  2. From the top of your watch’s screen, swipe down.
  3. Tap battery modes Battery Saver and then select a battery mode.

If you still can't find it, check with your manufacturer.

Set Battery Saver to turn on automatically

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

  1. If your screen is dim, tap it to wake up the watch.
  2. From the top of your watch’s screen, swipe down and tap Settings and then System and then Battery.
  3. Turn on Battery Saver at 10%.
    • Tip: 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 recognise that it’s not on your wrist, and will then switch to a low-power mode.

Depending on your watch, some of these changes may happen:

  • The watch screen turns off.
  • Notifications, alarms and alerts from your phone are disabled.
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and mobile 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.
