How To Turn On The Power Reserve On Your Apple Watch

Same as the smartphones have the Power saver mode, the Apple Watch has the Power reserve mode. When the battery is low, you can turn on the Power reserve, in which case the Watch will have only one function – it will show the time. It will not communicate with your iPhone, which means you won’t see any notifications. Also, if the battery gets too low, your gadget will automatically enter this mode, and you will see the lighting and time (as in the picture below). Let’s see how to turn on the Power reserve mode on your Apple Watch.
