Does your Apple Watch often fall short of expectation and fail to last the full tilt? There is a simple but very handy trick that can let you extend your smartwatch's battery life. Turn On Power Reserve mode on your Apple Watch when you are not using it in order to prevent unnecessary battery consumption.
When Power Reserve mode is activated, all the features of the Watch are disabled. However, you can still see the time on your smartwatch.
