Users of an Apple Watch have likely been waiting for quite some time for a feature such as a genuine power-saving mode to become available. The Cupertino-based company has recently announced the availability of such a function with the release of watchOS 9. It is possible to turn it on by using the Control Center or by going into Settings and selecting Battery right on the Apple Watch itself.

The power-saving option of the Apple Watch can be enabled for multiple days at a time, and the icon for this mode, which is a yellow circle, can be found at the very top of the watch. When the battery level drops to less than 10 percent, you will be prompted to choose whether or not you want to save energy immediately. When the Apple Watch’s battery reaches 80 percent of its capacity after being refilled, the power-saving mode is turned off automatically.

The always-on display (AOD) and the monitoring of various health functions, such as a person’s heart rate and the quantity of oxygen in their blood, are both disabled when the user activates the new power-saving mode that is included with watchOS 9. In this configuration, you will only be able to access reminders for an upcoming workout or notifications of coming calls and messages once every hour.

When you put your iPhone into power-saving mode, it will also turn off cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity if it isn’t within range. A connection will be formed automatically unless you launch an app in which the establishment of a data connection is completely essential. It is also important to note that normally quick processes, such as setting up a call or updating an application or complication, take significantly longer than usual. Additionally, animations and scrolling generally will not be as fluid as they normally are.
