There are also thousands of watch face designs to choose from – you’re bound to find one that matches your personality and style. Smart battery modes The Gen 6 has a variety of battery modes that can extend its 24-hour battery life. By choosing only the functionalities you need in Extended Mode, you can use your smartwatch for multiple days without needing to recharge. It won’t take long to charge up though – 30 minutes of charging gives you around 19 hours of battery. This will come in handy when you need to give it a quick charge before you leave for work.
