    Like I said, Google decides how you should use your watch and doesn't give you options to change settings.

    I'm getting a battery warning at 30% now (why?!?), and cannot disable auto power saving features at 15%. But the latest annoying thing, which appears to be new, is it asks me to re-enter my pin AT LEAST once every 24 hours, and it didn't used to so long as it remained on your wrist.

    And then it insists on placing an annoying notification on my watch screen (which also doesn't appear to be able to turn off) informing me of one of the above issues. I don't want your stupid little notification icons on the beautiful watchface I spent so much time creating.

    Grrrrr.....this kind of stuff is why we had to root our phones way back when.

    I don't wear my watch that often these days because of my new line of work, but I don't think I've noticed any battery saving setting. I also like to charge it beyond 30% or so.

    What watch are you using currently? Did it receive a new Wear OS update?

    Huawei Watch 2 Classic. It seems to autoupdate itself frequently. These are all changes I've noticed in the past month or so. I guess the first battery warning used to be 40% instead of 30%, so I suppose that's an improvement.

    I've also found some additional settings buried deep in the individual aps menu (but I'm not sure if these do anything yet). I think this is new. There were some basic settings and permissions before, but now it seems more involved.

    Off topic, but the same thing happened with my phone. When my battery gets down to 15%, a notification comes on and you can't prevent it or dismiss it, along with an icon in the status bar that you can't make go away. I'm rooted and don't get system updates, so something they pushed thru a playstore app update.


    Google usually gets around to figuring out that, hey, this isn't what everyone wants....but of course that can take them a LONG time.
