    Hello all, this is probably kind of dumb but it bugs me. Often when I check the time the display has switched to another app like Music or Audible or something so that I have to push the stem and close the app to see the time. These apps seem to appear randomly, I don't know if my wrist is poking the button but I doubt it. Is there a way to stop this? Anyone else deal with it?
    Thanks

    If you’re actively using those apps on your phone then the watch prioritises those apps to help you with control.

    Yes, but when I close them I'd like them to stay closed so I can see the time next time I lift my wrist.

    In the Watch app - Settings > General > Wake Screen > Auto-Launch Audio Apps (Toggle Off)

    Thank you, that sounds right. I'll try it.

    Is your eyesight a little poor? Even when I’m in an app, the time is visible in the upper right corner. Maybe there’s some apps where that’s not the case but I haven’t seen one yet.
