To maximize the battery life of your watch, try the following tips:
TRY CHANGING TO A DIFFERENT WATCH FACE
Some watch faces, especially those with animations or interactive abilities and brighter colors, use up more battery life than others.
ADJUST SCREEN BRIGHTNESS
The brighter your watch screen, the more battery your watch will use. Turn down your watch screen brightness to save more battery power.
TURN OFF NOTIFICATIONS YOU DON'T WANT
Turning off notifications can save your battery.
See "HOW DO I BLOCK NOTIFICATIONS?" to learn how to block notifications.
TURN ON THEATER MODE
Turn off the display and notifications by turning Theater mode on temporarily.
See "HOW DO I USE THEATER MODE?" to learn how to turn on theater mode.
If you recently installed an app and notice that your battery is draining faster than normal, try uninstalling that app. To uninstall an app on your watch, you need to uninstall the app from the phone your watch is paired with.
LIMIT WI-FI USE
If your watch is Wi-Fi enabled, you can save battery life by adjusting the amount of time your watch can use Wi-Fi.
TURN OFF ALWAYS ON FEATURE
Turn off the always on screen feature to save battery life. You can set the display to show the time or turn off completely when you're not using the watch. If set to turn off, the screen will turn on when you turn your wrist or touch the screen.
Here's how to change the setting from your phone:
- On your phone, open the Wear OS by Google app.
- Touch Settings.
- Find Always-on screen and use the switch to turn on or off.
From your watch:
- If your screen is dim, touch the screen to wake up the watch.
- Swipe down from the top of the screen.
- Swipe from right to left until you see Settings and then, touch it.
- Touch Always-on screen to turn on or off.
