Compared to other smartwatches, the Apple Watch does not have a particularly robust battery life.

An Apple Watch lasts for just 18 hours, which means you need to charge it daily. Most people charge it overnight, which is why it doesn’t have a built-in sleep tracking app like many other smartwatches and fitness bands.

Reduce the Wake Screen time, or turn the feature off

When you raise your wrist to see your watch or tap the screen, it “wakes” the display for a short time.

If you have the wake time set to 70 seconds, that will drain the battery quickly. You should set it to 15 seconds instead.

1. Start the Watch app on your iPhone.

2. On the “My Watch” tab, tap “General.”

3. Tap “Wake Screen.”

4. Tap “Wake for 15 seconds.”

You can also turn off the Wake Screen on Wrist Raise feature, so your watch will only wake the display when you tap the screen or turn the Digital Crown.

Simply disable the “Wake Screen on Wrist Raise” option at the top of the screen.

Re-pair your Apple Watch and iPhone

If your battery is running out faster than it should, it’s possible that there’s something wrong with how your watch and phone are paired.

You can resolve a lot of issues by un-pairing your watch and then re-pairing it as a new watch, which should wipe out any of the corruption that caused the battery glitch.

Here’s how to do it.

1. Start the Watch app on your iPhone.

2. On the “My Watch” tab, tap your watch at the top of the screen.

3. Tap the little “i” to the right of your watch information.

4. Tap “Unpair Apple Watch” and then confirm your choice.

Now that your watch is no longer paired to your phone, follow the instructions in our article “How to pair an Apple Watch with your iPhone” to set up your watch as a new device.
