Hi everyone. I like to keep my apple watch on " turn screen on when moving your wrist" but noticed because I drive with my left hand, the whole time I'm driving it goes on and off and on and off every time I make a turn. I know you can just shut this setting off but is there a better/faster way? I know i my moto 360 I just sold it had "theater mode" which just turned off the display completely until you woke it with the side button. Other than power saver is there something else I can do to get this effect? I only don't want to use power saver because it take so long to reboot

My AW does the same, I just ignore it. You can turn the feature off if it bothers you that bad. You would be shocked how often the watch screen turn on then you are not looking. Try just ignoring it.

Yea, I just turn off the raise wrist in settings and after driving or a movie I just double click the crown and it is right back to the raise wrist on off and I turn it back on.

That would be a nice feature to have in the future. I drive alot after dark and it is hard to ignore it when it's flashing on and off on your wrist but really don't want to take the time to turn the wrist detection off and on each time I drive but some type of shortcut step would be nice.

So after you set it, if you double click the crown it turns it back on?

not quite. he opens settings, disables activate on wrist raise. *the important part is then not to interact with any watch app other than the watch face* then uses the double crown to return to the settings page to activate it again.
