How to Check Apple Watch Battery?


If you are an Apple Watch user, it’s quite important to keep tabs on how to check Apple Watch battery level, so that you can charge it before the power is running out. Unlike iPhone or iPad, Apple Watch doesn’t have a status bar where it indicates the battery remaining by fault. There are a couple of ways to check Apple Watch battery.

Battery Glance

To access this glance, swipe up from the bottom of the Apple Watch screen while on the watch face. If you don’t see the Battery glance right off the bat, swipe left or right until you find the glance. It gives you information about how much battery is remaining, and an option to use Power Reserve mode to stretch available power. If you turned off the Battery Glance, you can turn it on again. Open the Watch app on your iPhone and tap Glances > Battery.

The remaining battery percentage indicator can be permanently displayed on your Watch Face, similarly to the way it shows up on your iPhone. However, you get more personalization options with the smartwatch. Watch OS allows you to place it in any corner of the screen, opposed to the iOS device that displays it in the top right corner.


Here comes the question– How to add battery indicator into watch face?

1.Raise your wrist to wake up your wrist gadget and display the watch face.

2. Press the display firmly to enable the Force Touch shortcut and bring up additional options.

3.Choose Customize.

4.Swipe to the left until you can select individual feature locations.

5.Tap the desired location on your watch face. This will be the area where the battery percentage indicator will be displayed.

6.Scroll by turning the Digital Crown until the Battery selection comes up.

7.Hit the Digital Crown again to exit settings.

Check Apple Watch battery on iPhone 

If you’re used to managing battery life on your iPhone, here is a quick access to configure “Batteries” widget on your iPhone to check the Apple Watch battery.

Prerequisite: you will need an iPhone running iOS 9.0 or above, earlier versions don’t work due to the absence of apple watch widget. Of course your apple watch needs to be paired and synced with your iPhone in the first place.

1.Swipe down from the top of your screen while the iPhone is unlocked. This will open the Notification Center.

2.Scroll to the bottom of the “Today” view and tap “Edit”. Now tap the green plus sign button next to the “Batteries” widget and use the little handles to the right of your widgets to arrange them in a preferable order, if needed. Tap “Done” when ready.

3.As you can see on the last screenshot in the series, the widget will immediately report the charge level of both of your devices, right in the Notification Center. Swipe up to close it.


Hopefully, the future will bring more ways to quickly gauge battery life on Apple Watch. It will be cool to know the Apple Watch battery percentage by asking Siri. If you have more ideas, please comment below.
