Guys, does your watch nightstand mode goes off after a minute? I thought, it should be non stop displaying when on a back side and charging... But mine simply goes off after a while

It's supposed to turn off. That clock is way too bright to sleep next to.

Is there an option for this? I would prefer to use it like a normal clock and leave it on all night if at all possible. Non-beta user here, thanks for looking into it.

But what is the reason / sense of having such mode then? If it is dark, and I want to see what is the time, I have to grab /touch the watch in the dark. And of course, it will be picked up and will not be in the nightstand mode anymore :) But once picked it up - does not matter what mod eat is - I will see the clock face :)

Well the Font in nightstand mode is so big you don't need to pick the watch up to see the time.

Negative! How can see it if the display is OFF? This is the question :) In order to wake up the display/watch - you should touch it or pick it up

^ This. Can any of the beta testers please tell us if there are any configurations for this in the settings?

I have the beta. And no any settings available (at least in this beta) for the nightstand
