The transparency effects on Apple Watch can be seen on Glances screen and the effect is very minimal. Few of the users have commented that turning this off doesn’t bring a huge change in the UI, but it certainly helps in boosting performance as well as battery life of Apple Watch. Here we will provide you details on how to reduce transparency effects in Apple Watch.

Earlier, we had provided information on reducing motion and increasing / decreasing font and icon size on Apple Watch. Both of these guides give a noticeable change to the UI and also help in the overall performance of the Apple Watch. Same is not the case with transparency, it hardly brings any noticeable change and thus, it is really worth turning off. Details about reducing or turning off transparency are given below; feel free to have a look.

How to Reduce Transparency on Apple Watch

How to Reduce Transparency on Apple Watch:

Step #1. The settings are to be done from your paired iPhone. So launch the Watch app from your iPhone Home Screen.

Step #2. In the Watch app, go to General followed by Accessibility.

In the Watch app, Go to General

Step #3. Toggle ON ‘Reduce Transparency’ option.

Tap on 'Reduce Transparency' option & Toggle 'ON'

That’s it; you’ll not need to restart either your iPhone or Apple Watch, as the effects are immediate. Though, you’ll need to closely look at the Glances screen to notice the changes. As said earlier, turning this feature off will hardly transform the UI and you will notice slightly better performance on your Apple Watch.
