New Watchface: Digital Battery Saver

Simple Digital Watch Face, with ultra low battery usage. High contrast display for improved day/night visibility. This for the Garmin users who want battery life and not necessarily needing all that extra data.

With the Fenix 6x solar expect 0.5% per day (24hr). My test with F6x Solar with optical HR and SaO2 (all day) were on.

Note: Watch type, Battery age, number of widgets and active sensors will affect battery drain rate.


-Auto adjusts background/foreground color for better readability

-Supports reduced ultra low processing in normal mode and further savings in configurable modes.

-Additional battery savings using Late Night Mode.

-Configurable Gesture mode for further battery saving.

—Blank Screen Mode: gesture to time

– High Contrast selections

Lap By Position brings back most of the features of the 310xt/910xt “Lap By Position” function.
