The Apple Watch will feature a dedicated Power Reserve mode that will allow users to check the time but not use any of the device’s other features.
The unannounced feature has been revealed in a New York Times article, which posits that Apple could face a struggle to convince consumers to buy their wearable.
It should mean that despite the Apple Watch reportedly only having day–long battery life, it won’t die on you when you need the time the most.
Samsung’s Gear S already offers such a feature, with low power also a big draw on a number of high–end Android phones.
However, Apple products, including the iPhone and iPad, have as yet not had such power saving tools.
Apple is set to reveal the final details of its much–hyped wearable at a San Francisco event on Monday, March 9th.
CEO Tim Cook has already said that the device will go on sale in April.
Prices are due to start from $350, purportedly rising to the high thousands for the most exclusive editions.
