If you need some extra time between charges, the Low Power Mode on your Apple Watch can help you save significant battery life.

Be default, whenever your Apple Watch battery goes down to 10%, a Low Power Mode alert asks if you want to turn the feature on. It turns off automatically when your battery is charged to 80% unless you chose to turn it on.
