    My watch has been 'dead' for four days now, and I can still press the button on the side and toggle the time. I thought that was pretty impressive. I definitely won't be taking advantage of power reserve because of this.

    That is Power Reserve. The AW automatically enters power reserve when the battery gets too low.

    I really don't understand what this thread is about...

    Not exactly true (in my experience), it prompts you to enter, but doesn't do it automatically.

    That is the whole point of power reserve.

    That's only if you cancel the prompt when prompted for power reserve. However, if you leave it alone to die (as in the OP's case), it'll automatically enter power reserve on its own.

    The OP is mistakenly thinking the AW isn't in power reserve mode when it actually is. Just showing the time means it's in power reserve.
