12.1 Saving battery life
Watch battery life depends on battery capacity and usage. If you install lots of third-party apps
or use watch features intensively, this will reduce the standby time.
The following tips can help improve battery life:
A. Disable unnecessary app notifications
Method 1: Go to the settings screen in the Android Wear app. Under Block app notifications,
select those apps for which notifications should be disabled.
Method 2: Swipe left on the screen when you receive a notification message and touch Block
app to disable notifications for that app.
B. Disable the Always-on screen feature
Watch battery life depends on battery capacity, watch features and usage. For example, a watch with a
color screen uses more power than an e-ink screen. Likewise, smart watches use more power than
ordinary electronic watches. Frequent use of smart watch features will also increase power consumption.
12.2 Adjusting the strap length

Stainless steel mesh strap: Please adjust the strap yourself so that it fits your wrist.

Leather strap: First try adjusting the strap yourself so that it fits your wrist. If the strap
does not fit comfortably using the existing holes, please take your watch to a
professional dealer (for example, a Huawei Watch retailer or jeweler) for adjustment.

Stainless steel link bracelet: A special tool is needed to adjust the bracelet. To prevent
any accidental damage to your watch, please take it to a professional dealer (for example,
a Huawei Watch retailer or jeweler) for adjustment.

Caring for your leather strap


Do not compress the strap or bend it for prolonged periods, otherwise it may change
shape.

Keep the watch strap away from flammable, acidic, and alkaline materials. Natural
