Low Power Mode will arrive on several Apple Watch models

The long-awaited moment has finally arrived! Yes, Apple’s “Far Out” event to showcase the company’s new products was held yesterday at the Steve Jobs Theater. As usual, the Cupertino company presented a host of products including the iPhone 14 series, the AirPods Pro 2 and the trio of smartwatches. All these products are deployed with innovative and very interesting features. But Apple has another surprise in store.

In introducing the Apple Watch Series 8, the company clarified that it has introduced a new low power feature that allows this accessory to double its battery life by disabling a few features. This mode will be extended to Series 4 as well as later versions with watchOS 9 which will be released on September 12. For the moment, efficiency on all models remains an enigma.

The “low power” feature is very practical for battery saving. According to Apple, it can give users up to 36 hours of battery life on a single charge. To use it, it is necessary to disable certain features such as always-on display, automatic start of training, heart health notifications, etc.

On the other hand, it allows users to activate activity tracking as well as fall detection. The low power mode will therefore encourage people to wear the watch at night and should allow them to take advantage of the sleep tracking function introduced earlier this year. Apple has not yet detailed how this new mode will work on its other watches.

What about other watch models?

The Cupertino company said the Apple Watch Ultra comes with 36 hours of battery life as standard. Thus, activating the low power mode will extend this duration up to 60 hours. But for older models, it would seem that the new feature is less effective.

The Series 4 and SE models don’t have their always-on displays, which means it wouldn’t impact battery life. The features that must be disabled to enjoy low power mode on these watches have not yet been disclosed. Even if the effectiveness of the new mode differs between models, it is always good to be able to save a little battery.
