Google is set to release a new system update called the “H Update” to its “Wear Operating System (OS)” with features like the battery saver, body efficiency and smart app resume.

“In the next few months, you should soon see a system update on your device labeled ‘System Version: H’,” a Community Manager at Wear OS, Google wrote in a blog-post on Thursday.

The new battery saver mode that would come with the “H Update” to Android-based smart-watches would extend the device battery further by turning on “Battery Saver” to only display the time once your battery falls below 10 per cent.

“Additionally, after 30 minutes of inactivity your watch will go into deep sleep mode to conserve battery,” the post added.
