How to increase Apple Watch battery life

If your Apple Watch needs to be charged too often or is using more battery life than you think, there are a number of things you can do to improve your Apple Watch’s battery life.

The Apple Watch comes with a wide range of settings, and changing some of them can help improve your device’s battery life. Things like apps running in the background, notifications, how often the device wakes up from sleep, and more can affect battery life. We hope that some of the tips in this guide will help you extend the life of your Apple Watch battery.

Fewer Notifications on Apple Watch

Each time a notification is sent to Apple Watch, it consumes some of the device’s battery. If you disable some of them and keep only the important notifications on your device, it can help you improve your battery life.

You can choose which notifications you want to receive on your device from the Watch app on your iPhone. This can be done by opening the Watch app and selecting Notifications. For each of the apps on the Apple Watch, there are two options: you can choose Mirror My iPhone or Custom Notifications.

If you select Mirror My iPhone, the notifications will be exactly the same as you set up on your iPhone, if you select Custom, you can select either Allow Notifications or Apple Watch Battery l for that particular app. Personally, I disable most of them and leave notifications only for things I consider important, such as phone call notifications and others. Reducing many of these notifications can help you improve your Apple Watch battery life.

Reduce the wakeup screen time to extend your Apple Watch battery life.

Another way to improve your Apple Watch battery life is to reduce the screen time on your device. You can do this in the Apple Watch app on your iPhone. To change these settings, go to the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and select Display & Brightness. You can then select things like “Wake on Wrist Up” which will wake up the display when you lift your wrist. You can also choose the duration of the wake up time: 15 or 70 seconds when you click on it. Selecting the 15 seconds option should help you improve your Apple Watch battery life.

Disable Background App Refresh on Apple Watch.

Another way to improve Apple Watch battery life is to turn off background app refresh on your watch. To do this, open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and then go to Settings > General > Background App Refresh. You can then disable various apps that you don’t need to update in the background.

If you have a lot of apps updating in the background, then disabling most of them and allowing only the important ones to update can improve battery life.

Close applications running in the background

You may have some apps running in the background on your Apple Watch, turning them off can help extend battery life. This can be done easily by pressing the side button on your device, after which you will see various open applications. To close apps, swipe from right to left until a red X appears, tap it and the app will close.

How long your Apple Watch battery will last will depend on which model you have. The latest model is the Apple Watch Series 7. According to Apple, this should give you up to 18 hours of use on a single charge. You can learn more about Apple Watch and how to get the most out of your battery at the Apple website. This guide was written using Apple Watch Series 7 and watchOS 8.7, which is currently the latest version of watchOS.
