  5. Try using a different watch face. Some watch faces, especially those with a lot of animation, use up more battery life.
    Note: To change your watch face, touch and hold the watch face until it vibrates then release.  Swipe left and right to view available watch faces.  Tap a watch face to select.

  6. To see battery details on the phone, make sure your watch is connected then tap the Android Wear app > Settings icon > Watch battery.
    Note: Your battery information resets each time your watch is fully charged. The battery usage for apps and watch faces is an estimate and not guaranteed to be accurate.
