How to Turn On Reduce Motion on Apple Watch

When you turn it on, it reduces the animation as well as automatic resizing of the user interface of Apple Watch on Home screen. Furthermore, Reduce Motion also limits the animation that takes place while launching or closing an app on the watch.

There could be three possible reasons why you would like to turn on Reduce Motion on your Watch:

  • You are not charmed by the motion-based animation on your watch.
  • You want to save battery life on your watch.
  • You wish to make all the app icons on the Apple Watch of the same size in order to launch an app comfortably.
