On the watch face, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open Control Center, then look for the battery percentage indicator.

How to Enable Power Reserve Mode on Your Apple Watch
Your Apple Watch has a feature called Power Reserve that allows you to disable all but the necessary functions in order to conserve battery. When your Apple Watch is in Power Reserve mode, the time is still displayed, but other features like notification, fitness tracking, and apps are disabled.
To enable Power Reserve mode on your Apple Watch, press and hold the side button until you see the Power Reserve slider. Slide the slider to the right to enable Power Reserve mode.
How to Use Low Power Mode on Your Apple Watch
When you enable Low Power Mode on your Apple Watch, some features and applications use less battery power. For example, the maximum brightness of your screen is reduced, background app refresh is limited, and automatic downloads are paused. Low Power Mode can be enabled or disabled manually, or it can be set to turn on automatically when your Apple Watch’s battery reaches a certain level.
How to Use Nightstand Mode on Your Apple Watch
If you want to maximize battery life on your Apple Watch, one of the best things you can do is use Nightstand mode. This mode is designed to help you keep your watch charged overnight while still allowing you to use it as an alarm clock. Here’s how to set up and use Nightstand mode on your Apple Watch.
How to Reduce Motion and Animation on Your Apple Watch
There are two ways you can reduce the amount of battery your Apple Watch uses: by reducing the amount of motion and animation, and by disabling certain features.
Reducing Motion and Animation
Go to Settings > General > Accessibility.
Tap on Reduce Motion.
Toggle the switch to ON.
This will reduce the amount of animation and motion used by your Apple Watch, which in turn will save battery life. You can also try disabling certain features that you don’t need or use often, such as the heart rate sensor or always-on display.
Disabling Certain Features
Go to Settings > Battery.
Tap on the toggle switches next to the features you want to disable.
Features that can be disabled include the heart rate sensor, always-on display, raise to wake, and fitness tracking. By disabling these features, you’ll be able to extend your Apple Watch’s battery life.
How to Turn Off the Always-On Display on Your Apple Watch
The always-on display on the Apple Watch is one of its most useful features, giving you a quick way to see the time and your other important notifications without having to wake up your watch. But if you’re worried about the battery life impact of having the always-on display turned on, there are a few ways you can minimize its power usage.
One way is to disable the raise to wake feature, which will turn off the always-on display when your wrist is down. To do this, open the Settings app on your watch, select “Display & Brightness,” and then toggle off “Raise to Wake.”
Another way to save battery is to adjust the brightness of the always-on display. The brighter your watch’s screen is, the more power it will use. You can adjust the brightness by going to the Settings app on your watch, selecting “Display & Brightness,” and then dragging the “Always On Display Brightness” slider to your desired setting.
Finally, you can also disable some of the complications that appear on the always-on display. Complications are small pieces of information that appear on your watch face, such as the date, your current activity progress, or the weather forecast. To adjust which complications appear on your always-on display, open the Settings app on your watch, select “Complications,” and then tap on each complication to choose whether or not it appears when your wrist is down.
How to Use Power Saving Mode on Your Apple Watch
Your Apple Watch has a feature called Power Saving Mode that can help extend the battery life of your watch. When Power Saving Mode is enabled, your watch will disable certain features and use a simplified watch face. Follow the steps below to enable Power Saving Mode on your Apple Watch.
1. Open the Settings app on your Apple Watch.
2. Tap Battery.
3. Tap Power Saving Mode.
4. Tap the switch next to Power Saving Mode to turn it on.
Once Power Saving Mode is enabled, you can still use all of the features of your Apple Watch, but some features may be disabled or limited in order to conserve battery life. For example, the raise to wake feature may be disabled, and you may only be able to see the time on your watch face.
How to Factory Reset Your Apple Watch
A factory reset is a nuclear option when it comes to troubleshooting an Apple Watch. It will wipe all of the data and settings from your device and return it to its out-of-the-box state. If you are having significant issues with your watch and have exhausted all other options, a factory reset may be what you need.
Before you reset your watch, you should back up your data. You can do this by opening the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and going to My Watch > General > Backup. Once your backup is complete, you can begin the reset process by going to Settings > General > Reset on your watch. From there, select Erase All Content and Settings. Confirm that you want to continue, and your watch will restart itself and begin the reset process.
How to Manage Battery Usage on Your Apple Watch
Your Apple Watch is designed to last up to 18 hours on a full charge. However, actual results will vary depending on how you use it. If you have recently updated your watchOS or installed several new apps, you may notice that your battery drains more quickly. Here are some tips to help improve battery life on your Apple Watch:
1. Use Power Saving Mode
Power Saving Mode can extend the battery life of your Apple Watch when it is running low. To turn on Power Saving Mode, open the Settings app on your watch, tap Battery, then tap Power Saving Mode.
2. Check for watchOS and app updates
Installing the latest watchOS and app updates can help improve battery life. To check for watchOS updates, open the Settings app on your iPhone, then tap General > Software Update. To check for app updates, open the App Store on your iPhone, then tap Updates.
3. Manage background refresh limits for apps
Some apps refresh their content in the background, which can drain battery life. To limit background refresh for an app, open the Settings app on your iPhone, tap General > Background App Refresh, then turn off the switch next to the app.
