It's great for checking football score especially if you have Series 2. When your favorite team playing just set your watch to Theater Mode then when a goal notification comes in (vibrating), use the crown to gradually increase screen brightness to check.
Not at all since it would limit Theater mode's usefulness. Consider the following:They should of combined the two into one. Both isn't really needed
this feature also works at all times, not just when in theatre mode.This is true. But this feature is only available on Series 2 by rotating the Digital Crown.
You meant you wouldn't want them combined?In other situations, I only use theatre mode. For instance: in the theatre. And sometimes, I only use Do not disturb, for instance in church. I wouldn't want them separated.
I found that I appreciate the haptic feedback when I was riding in my very loud V8 Impala SS today. Because I certainly can't even hear my iPhone ringing and Haptic feedback would be the only method With the exhaust rumbling. Fun Times.Tried theater mode today while on a motorcycle ride and find it perfect for that as well.
I don't want to use DND, because that also sets your phone to DND. That isn't a viable solution for me, because there are certain calls I need to be able to take even when riding and can answer from my Sena helmet comms.
The theater mode prevents the Watch face lighting up with notifications, when I can't check them anyway and resulted in a significant battery savings.
Theater mode is going to be my new motorcycle mode.
At night, I combine the two: sleep mode and theatre. I've noticed a huge leap in battery savings. I put my watch on at 8.00 AM, and take it off the next day at 11.00 PM.
In other situations, I only use theatre mode. For instance: in the theatre. And sometimes, I only use Do not disturb, for instance in church. I wouldn't want them separated.
I think some are missing the 2 main differentiators of Do Not Disturb and Theater Mode:I can see people's points about it being useful for Theatre Mode to not also enable Do Not Disturb in certain instances where you want to see important notifications. But you still have the issue of being disturbed with everything else as well if you don't enable Do Not Disturb....
