    Is there ever a time you turn your watch off?.
    I charge it up when I get home and will shut it off after charging.
    Or do you always keep it on?

    Mine is always on. Never see a need to turn it off.

    I’ve kept all of my Apple products on all the time. As for my Watch, I tend to let it charge overnight with the Apple dock

    I’ve had my Watch for 2½ years or so and I may have turned it off a total of 5 times during that timeframe. In fact, I turned it off yesterday during our weekly company meeting with the CEO because I kept getting audible email notifications from clients. Anyway, to answer your question, I *typically* leave it powered on 24/7.

    Always on unless there are issues. I’ve rebooted it a few times when I realized I missed a notification but it’s rare.

    You'll may experience better battery life doing that.

    As I have multiple Watches, I'll charge one and turn it off when I'm expecting to wear a different one the next day. Otherwise I put it on the charger at night and leave it there until I put it on the next day.

    If the timing allowed, I'd be tempted to charge it before bedtime, and then take it off the charger when fully charged and store it someplace handy, but without turning it off. This assumes that the Watch is tweaked not to lose a lot of juice over night.

    Mine are always on. Since I have 2 now, I might start turning off my series 0 when I’m not using it though.

    If I were in a similar situation, I would definitely power off the one I’m not using.

    I never turn mine off. It's either on my wrist or it's charging.

    I'm not sure if Lithium Ion battery chemistry has changed, but it's always been my understanding that it is not good to let a Lith-ion battery become fully discharged. If I saw that my battery was getting really low, I would turn the phone off until I could get it on the charger.

    The way i use mine, it typically has about 60% battery left at the end of the day, so I just put it on the charger, then put it on in the morning. It asks me to sign in at that time, but I do not think it has been off, just locked.

    I've never turned off my Apple Watch too unless if there's any occasion that I won't need to wear the Apple Watch, which is rare.

    I haven’t turned off my watch. I’ll turn it off then on once a week to reboot it but that’s it. It’s always on

    I turn it off when I clean it, which I do every week to two weeks or so. (The problem is that most of the time when I am cleaning it I hold the stupid button by mistake at it turns on anyway.) Series 2, but I'd do the same with the S3.
