Curious to see the watch in apple reserve mode. Anyone with a watch want to take a picture of this?
I assume you mean power reserve... isn't that just either the watch face or a blank screen?
It's just a typical digital clock face, doesn't even take up the whole screen. Not a mode you should be excited about, it looks meh
Pretty sure it's just a bland digital watch face. Time only, no frills.
Darn.. was hoping we could choose between analog or digital face.
a simple analog face would use little power, and I think it would look nicer.
Nope. AND you have to restart the watch to take it out of power reserve....so yeah. Don't get excited too much!
I assume even alarm functionality is disabled?
Yeah that annoyed me lol. I turned it on just to see what it looked like (blank digital face) and then couldn't get out of it lmao. Maybe charging it would fix it, but my charger was in the other room, and... you know.
I tried Power Reserve mode and found that Activate on Wrist Raise doesn't work, and clicking the button brings up the time but it takes about 2 seconds so feels like the watch isn't responding.
I assume this is normal?
One thing John Gruber mentioned is in the 20+ days he's been using the watch he's never needed the power reserve mode. Used it once and that was just for his review. Also said most days end with 40-50% battery life left.
It's normal. In power reserve, it basically turns off all the sensors and whatnot, leaving it just with the time.
Thanks for the reply. I wish the button response was instant. That wouldn't use any more power.
