Google announces Version: H Update for Wear OS to improve battery life of devices

Google yesterday announced the new System Version: H Update for Wear OS devices. This is a major update that will add a significant boost to battery life of Wear OS devices. It includes the following new features:

  • Battery Saver Mode Updates: This update extends your battery life even further by turning on Battery Saver to only display the time once your battery falls below 10%.
  • Improved Off Body Efficiency: After 30 minutes of inactivity your watch will go into deep sleep mode to conserve battery.
  • Smart App Resume for all Apps: You can now easily pick up where you left off across all apps on your watch.
  • Two Step Power Off: You can now turn off your watch in two easy steps. To turn off your watch, simply hold the power button until you see the power off screen and then select ‘power off’ or ‘restart’

Google will be rolling out this update over the coming months. And the eligibility of the update will be determined by your watch manufacturer.
