Google's big Wear OS update that started rolling out to users in late September has been a joy to use, and over the coming months, it's going to get even better thanks to the new "H Update" that was just announced. This isn't nearly as radical as the previous Wear OS 2.0 firmware, but there are still a few new additions to keep an eye out for — a lot of them focused on extending battery life.
The Battery Saver mode has been reworked to only show the current time when your battery dips below 10%. Similarly, if your watch detects that it's been off your wrist or inactive for 30 minutes, it'll "go into deep sleep mode" to further extend your battery.
Something else to keep an eye out for is Smart App Resume for all of your apps — allowing you to instantly pick up where you left off the last time you were using an app on your watch.
And, finally, the new Two Step Power Off feature enables you to turn off your watch by holding down the power button and then tapping "power off" or "restart" on the screen.
Google says that the update is "progressively rolling out over the coming months" and that it'll show up as System Version H when it arrives.
